Blouse And Skirt
UK, BBC, Satire/sketch, colour, 2000
Starring: Tony Morris, Curtis Walker, Gina Yashere
First seen, in a different format, as an element within the black entertainment strand The A Force (BBC2, 18 October-20 December 1996), Blouse And Skirt eventually evolved into a show in its own right. Much of it followed the format of a comedy spin on Question Time, with regulars Curtis Walker and Gina Yashere joined by two guests to take a satirical look at topical subjects, prompted by questions from the audience. In between there were observations from the X-rated Ragga Girls and the Nigerian 'fly guys' Femi and Adi (Gee and Nestor), and a witty black perspective on the news moderated by the urbane Tony Morris and featuring a host of guest stars, including Felix Dexter, Angie Le Mar, Roy Diamond, Jocelyn Gee, Slim, Helen Da Silva, Charlie Hale, Many Newton, Junior Simpson and Leo Muhammed.
