Canned Carrott

Canned Carrott is a comedy stand-up and sketch-show by Jasper Carrott. Two of the regular sketches were "Wiggy" and "The Detectives".

The first sketch, "Wiggy", followed the adventures of a man with a bad wig (played by Carrott). It was a slapstick comedy in which the characters were silent except for the narrator. It was similar in style to Mr. Bean or The Benny Hill Show.

The second, and the more popular was "The Detectives", starring the police officers Briggs and Louis (played by Carrott and Robert Powell), who watched too many TV Police dramas, and unsuccessfully tried to emulate them. Such was the popularity of this sketch that it was transformed into its own television series, The Detectives.
