Corrie Comedy Cuts

My latest classic Corrie comedy moment comes from 1979. It’s a scene in the Rovers focussed around Fred Gee’s new wig. He’s roundly mocked for the less than flattering hairpiece by Annie Walker and several of the punters. There’s also a wonderful side show of Rita and Mavis who are propping up the bar, and bickering as always. It’s yet another example of Classic Coronation Street being more like a sitcom than a drama.


To celebrate sixty years of Corrie I’m sharing the scenes and moments that have made me laugh the most.

This clip was uploaded to YouTube by @LewisPringle and Tweeted recently by @ArchiveTVmus71.

Enjoy.

Thanks for reminding me of these scenes - so funny and painful at the same time. Poor Fred!
