Synopsis:

A no dialogue sitcom. The baldy man is a gormless half wit who is some distance apart from normality.

BSG Review:

This sitcom has many similarities to ' Mr Bean ' and, like that, has sold well internationally. Having said that, whilst it did gain a core fan base, most of the audience didn't take to Fisher's fictional character. Many complained about the annoying sounds too - grunts are not as nice as Mr Bean's mumbles.

Notes:

The character first appeared in 'Naked Video', a Scottish sketch show. Fisher also played the bald man in the famous Hamlet commercials .
