    Is that from that “Weekend” show, as in the one with the theme song that went “MondaytuesdaywednesdaythursdayfridayWIK-END(AH)”?

  2. Emma says:

    It’s not the Kopy Kats, is it?

  3. Chris Hughes says:

    I also reckon that this is an early run-out for the Copycats (they were quite a crew), with Bobby Davro as Elton, Jessica “Voice Of The Queen” Martin as Marilyn Monroe, Aidan J Harvey as Big Daddy (presumably the joke there is ‘Big Mummy’), Allan Stewart as Jacko, and fuck knows the rest.

  4. flotsky says:

    Is that Dustin Gee doing Dorothy from the Golden Girls at the back?

  5. N Fishwick says:

    In response to part b…

    Top row: Michael Jackson, Phil Silvers, Rod Stewart.
    Bottom row: Boy George, Big Daddy, Marilyn Monroe, Henry McGee dressed as Elton John.

  6. Andy C says:

    If it is Dustin Gee, then it’s surely Les Dennis in the Silvers getup.

    Top row: George Alagiah, Top Cat, Rod Stewart.
    Bottom row: George O’Dowd, Shirley Crabtree, Norma Jean, Reg Dwight

  8. Chris Hughes says:

    Good call on Dennis and Gee – I now reckon this is a photocall for 1984’s Go For It (“Go for it to-niiiiighhht!”), with Les Dennis (Bilko), Dustin Gee (Rod Stewart), Aiden J Harvey (Big Daddy), Bobby Davro (Elton), Johnny More (Boy George), Ann Byrne (Marilyn) and Allan Stewart (Jacko).

  9. Marco says:

    Les Dennis is playing Boy George (front row).

    I don’t know who is playing Phil Silvers….

  10. Ian Jones says:

    Here’s the full list. Back: Allan Stewart (Michael Jackson), Johnny More (Sgt Bilko) and Dustin Gee (Rod Stewart). Front: Les Dennis (Boy George), Aiden J Harvey (Big Mummy), Ann Byrne (Marilyn Monroe)and Bobby Davro (Elton John). And the programme? Yup, it’s Go For It, starring – according to LWT – “impressionists of showbiz people”.

    Before I read these comments, I was convinced Elton John was played by Philip Pope.
