SATIRICAL football-themed comedy show Only An Excuse? is as much a Hogmanay tradition as singing Auld Lang Syne when the clocks strike midnight… Hosted by renowned comic and impressionist Jonathan Watson, he brings a whole host of characters – many of them real life football stars he mercilessly skewers – to Scottish television screens every year on 31 December.
Tactics, formations and all forms of logic are thrown out of the window as football favourites and legends such as Frank McAvennie, Sir Alex Ferguson, Kenny Dalglish, Graeme Souness, Gordon Strachan, Craig Brown, Walter Smith, and Charlie Nicholas alongside comic creations Sean the hapless Celtic fan and his Rangers counterpart are all lined up for a comedy kicking.
And now this Scottish institution can be celebrated not just north of the border but beyond, and not just on New Year’s Eve, as it arrives for the first time on DVD as one bumper collection in The Best of Only an Excuse? including all the classic episodes from the last 10 years (2007 to 2016), as seen on the BBC.
The Best Of Only An Excuse? is the perfect stocking – and football boot – filler offering a season’s worth of laughs at the beautiful game.
The Best of Only An Excuse?, Cert.12 available on DVD now.
