The Best of The Real McCoy Comedy Show – Sketches




I want to share the sketches I love from the great show The Real McCoy. The Real McCoy was a BBC Television comedy show which ran from 1991 to 1996 and featured many talented Black comedy stars. While also showcasing up-and-coming Black comedians. It was a great mixture of short sketches and stand-up comedy, the material reflected Black culture and traditions.

The Real McCoy Supporting Great New Talent

Apart from many laughs, the show also showcased new upcoming talent.¬†These new comedians were allowed to showcase their skills and talent to an audience that loved them and supported them. In that era, there weren’t many venues for them to use as a stepping stone into the world of comedy. Luckily for them, The Real McCoy team¬†embraced these new talents with open arms. To date many of these new talents have become¬†successful stars in their own right which is great, however, they will¬†always be remembered for appearing on The Real McCoy.

It’s a ¬†shame we don’t have something like this on UK TV anymore. However, saying that if the BBC decided to run repeats of the real McCoy I don’t think many people would complain. These sketches years ago still bring people to tears in laughter. That’s what I call great comedy. They have been shared with generations after generations and it still gets them laughing.¬†
