Movie Reviews

The best black britsh comedy ever
lee | West Palm Beach, Florida USA | 08/31/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In the early 90's Desmond's was shown on BET cable channel and this is where most American were exposed to the comedy. This is one of the funniest shows to come from the BBC channel 4. It is up there with Are you being served and Keeping up Appearances.
Desmond's is about a West Indian barber his wife and family and the regulars that frequent his shop. The cast consists of Desmond Ambrose played by (Norman Beaton), who owns the Barber shop with his wife Shirley (Carmen Munroe). He has three children Michael (Geff Francis), Gloria (Kim Walker) and Sean (Justin Pickett). Regular customers were the West Indian, Dominoes mad Porkpie (Ram John Holder), one of Desmond's old friends (about 50) African student Matthew (Gyearbuor Asante) and Shaky Lee (Robin Gee) hair stylist Tony (Dominic Keating) and Gloria's best friend Louise (Lisa Geoghan).

If you are from the Islands or you like BBC comedies you will enjoy this series.It is a wonderful and truly funny comedy series. If you are feeling down and want something to cheer up to this DVD definitely worth the money, You can watch the episode over and over again. The DVD contains 3 discs series (season) one and two.

"I stumbled into this show on Cable TV in the early 90's and fell in love with it, so I am ecstatic to find it available on DVD, and can't wait to watch them all again."

"Finally!! I found it.

I own a lot of British comedies and I have been looking for Desmond's for many years now.

Besides 'Chef'; Desmond's is the only comedy that I know of from Britian with the majority of cast members who are of African descent.

BET showed many episodes during the 1990s. I was surprised that it was not shown anywhere else."
Brought back good memories.

"I first saw Desmond's when I first came to this country and it's frequent references to Guyana and the easy going life there was comforting. It was fun comparing the parenting styles that are still hard to change even today for many Guyanese fathers!!!"
