What the Butler Saw (1987)

Highly Recommended
Barry Davis's utterly bonkers What the Butler Saw is a trouser-soilingly funny BBC production of Joe Orton’s farcical, bitingly satirical 1969 play, packed with memorable dialogue and off-the-wall incident.

---

White golliwogs, cross-dressing coppers, bellboy rapists, insanity, incest, and Winston Churchill’s giant member all play their part in this trouser-soilingly funny BBC production of Joe Orton’s farcical, bitingly satirical 1969 play, in which the head psychiatrist of a lunatic asylum, when trying to conceal the attempted molestation of his new secretary from his wife, only succeeds in making himself (and everyone else) look completely round the bend.
