was against a sort of

rather stifling world.

It wasn't necessarily oppressive.

It didn't hurt us.

It wasn't unpleasant or unkind.

It just was very, very conventional.

We know our place,

but what do we get out of it?

I get a feeling of

superiority over them.

I get a feeling of

inferiority from him,

but a feeling of

superiority over him.

I get a pain in the back of my neck.

We were all writers

for The Frost Report,

so we'd met over a long period of time

and had worked on the

same sort of shows.

The Frost Reports were very

good shows, very well written.

They had a theme.

Like the first show,

the theme was authority.

A comedy show about authority?

It had three more syllables

writing sketches with Graham.

We used to write one,

or sometimes two,

three-minute sketches each week.

I sometimes performed them,

but not always,

And Mike and Terry used to

write the filmed piece.

And Eric used to often write,

a rather sort of witty-type verbal--

His kind of style stuff,

which Ronnie Barker often did.

We were all meeting then.

We'd write what he called his cdm--

His continuous developing monologue,

which John and Graham

used to call ojaril--

Old jokes and ridiculously

irrelevant links.

So I learned there's a power

in being a writer.

I used to live in Notting Hill Gate,

and my jokes were sent

by the BBC by taxi,

and I had to go by tube.

This taxi would arrive,

and they'd be hot off the press.

It was an interesting stage.

The Frost Report went out live.

I would write in this pub,
