Trivia

The closest the original run of the series got to the level of fake personas seen in this episode was probably Blankety Blank: Episode #8.11 (1985) which featured Duncan Norvelle and Jimmy Cricket, two comedians who portrayed a stereotyped camp homosexual (despite being heterosexual in real life) and a similarly stereotyped "simple Irishman" figure. Though an exaggerated persona, Cricket (real name James Mulgrew) did at least perform with his own accent. See more »

Crazy Credits

Brenda Gilhooly appears in the guise of "Gayle Tuesday", yet is credited by her own name, whereas Paul O'Grady is only credited as the imaginary "Lily Savage". See more »
