Unit 04- League of Gentleman, Beauty Parlour TV Sketch

After Alan pointed me a TV Sketch in the British Comedy TV Show " League of Gentlemen", I went to research it a little more.
The Beauty Parlour TV Sketch shows Charlie being swapped by the actual beautician,Mrs. Levinson, just to receive some more money. It shows how funny a wrong person can be in such place and produce a comedy. Being Charlie, a rough Man at work, who even brings the hammer to the treatment sessions, has a "gift" of giving amazing massages, accompanied by the soundtrack of Mrs Levinson's voice. It is funny already as it is, where the clients are induced into mistake, but when the massages are taken to a whole new level the sketch becomes hilarious.
Charlie starts to give "extra" massages, so we are faced with a rough man doing innapropriate things.

Something that can be related to my story.

Just hilarious!

Hi Ruben,

If you ever get a chance watch all of 'The League of Gentlemen' (three series) or 'Psychoville'. You can learn a lot from these. An excellent show on many conceptual, comedy, and technical levels.
