Comic Genius in True Sense of wordsBy a customer from Fareham , 12 Nov 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]With writers like Barry Took, most of the Python team and John Junkin you can't go far wrong.
Marty includes classics like the Loneliness of the Long Distance Golfer, Speedy Tours daytrip and Putting the Cat out.
Any young fan of Spke Milligan or Monty Python should take a look at this other and highly underated zany british comedian.

funnyBy a customer from Doncaster UK , 01 Jun 2010funny guy but not very pretty ;o)
the eyes have itBy myviews (13 reviews) from Wakefield , 17 Mar 2009I loved this classic comedy from one of Britons best loved mad cap comedian if the gags dont have you spliting your sides or just the look on his face then nothing will make you laugh out loud ever again 10/10 i miss Marty and loved this DVD
The Eyes Have ItBy Steve Morgan from Neath, South Wales , 21 Oct 2008This is a great compilation of sketches from Marty's early 70s tv show. Gut-bustingly funny in fact! The running time is a slight let-down, I didn't want it to end I was laughing so much.
The Ticks that Memory Fade play on youBy dougthom (278 reviews) from Brighton,UK , 16 Sep 2008I recall Marty Feldman as one of the funniest comedians of all time.
However that was a memory of my youth. Watching the material again you can see how dated it was. Yes ahead of its time, but time has pasted on as has sophistication of comedy. You can see where he developed his comedy from (eg Marx Brothers), but you can see other young comedy talent in there (embryo Monty Python team, The Goodies and so on) these were all nobodies at the time.
It is worth watching form a historical view point, the comedy will feel dull so make sure you have another DVD at home to swap over to.
Does not upscale well at all and average sound.
Classic FeldmanBy John Perry from Wales , 20 Dec 2006This is well worth watching to see a comic genius at work. My favourite from this one hour compendium is the HP Sauce song (5 stars for this bit), which shows what comedy is all about.
