Oppression Obsession



This is, to me, Tom Walker's benchmark bit for the Jonathan Pie character. Just fucking amazing. 

And it is also the second time that have ever heard the noun, "blancmange," ever. It's a French word, and a French dessert, I suppose, but both incidents of the word have come from British comedians. The first was in an early Monty Python bit that I saw in 1974 on PBS. That bit was hysterical and you could tell from context what a blancmange was, which was very helpful, I can tell you. 

This fellow is really, really good.
