      @Calum African comedies make no sense have no plot line or any sort of clever subversive jokes and just end up being ,in your face messes that you can only laugh at because the humour is so bad. Watch this scene again and see how well written all the lines are how all three characters have distinct characteristics from eachother making it all the more funnier.
      African comedies are funny because their bad this is funny because its good.

    I remember the actor who played Micky pierce said after that episode any good laughs in the scripts they'd call them Wendys ...oh yeah weve got a few Wendy's. The actor i think actually did live in Peckham cos my dad's family did used to see him down at this members pub called the hatchem which has packed up a good few years back.

    The Wendy House line was adlibbed and Sir David's reaction to it was genuine. The 2nd clip when he and Lennard were both laughing was probably edited due to the prolonged laughter them and the audience. In The Miracle Of Peckham Buster Merryfield's reaction to his kipper was genuine after Nicholas Lyndhurst put aftershave on it without telling him.

      In the ofah book it says that that line was used as a measuring line and In the future from that line if they had a line that they thought would "bring the house down " the cast would say "look out looks like a wendy or ;wendy alert " as a way of saying we got a great line coming out, and it all came from that moment, isn't that amazing? Lennard Pearce was never forgotten about in their future (,David john,nicholas)cos of that moment

      There was some crime drama from 1984 which featured Lennard Pearce and Buster Merryfield in the same episode. The two actors didn't previously know each other and it was shot not long before Lennard Pearce's death.
