Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Time Gentlemen Please was an offshoot of British comedian Al Murray's famously uninhibited standup comedy act. Murray was cast as Guv, a loudmouthed, bigoted, sexist pub keeper who held court over a throng of staffers and customers in his grimy, rundown establishment. Although Guv's wife and children had long since walked out on him, he managed to retain an entourage which included his potty-mouthed Australian barmaid Janet (Julia Sawalha) and rowdy customer Terry (Phil Daniels), who managed to get himself thrown out of the pub in the course of every episode. Broadcast over the anything-goes British satellite service Sky One, the 22-episode Time Gentlemen Please debuted on September 11, 2000.
