3. Alexei Sayle’s Paris

Play episode

Welcome back to YOU HAVE BEEN WATCHING, a podcast about British sitcoms.

Join your hosts Tony Black & Robert Turnbull as they discuss Graham Linehan & Arthur Matthews’ short-lived sitcom PARIS, starring Alexei Sayle, which aired in 1994.

Sayle appears as Alain Degout, a foul mouthed and uncouth artist in 1920s Paris who believes himself a genius not respected in his time. With all the trappings of a traditional sitcom, why did Paris last just one series and retain zero cultural footprint?
