View Full Version : Peter Cook and his 'Sven' recordings...

Peter Cook in his later years used to phone up his local radio station (out of pure boredom) in the guise of a Swedish fisherman named Sven...
You can hear all of his calls at the link below...
Pure British Comedy Gold!
RIP Peter Cook.

Thanks for that link, Jonny. I'd not heard those recordings before.

Great stuff! He doesn't sound much like a Norwegian fisher though, more like Werner Herzog. :D Still very funny though!

Sweet - thanks for posting that stuff, Jonny. Peter Cook has never been properly appreciated in the US.

Peter Cook has never been properly appreciated in the US.
That's a real shame, why do you think that is Troy?
How does Stephen Fry go down in the US?

For anyone interested Peter, as Sven, would phone up LBC's Clive Bull. Clive is still presenting on LBC Mon-Fri 2200-0100.
Iain Lee (a former stand-up/presenter of the 11 O'clock Show, which also starred Ali G) also used to phone up Clive. You can also find Iain's infamous 'Ghostbusters 2' video's on YouTube where he would 'phone up those pathetic late night quiz shows on cable TV and give the answer as Ghostbusters 2 no matter what the qestion was.
Iain is now himself a presenter on LBC (97.3FM) and does the show before Clive (1900-2200).
Iain's show has some of the dumbest, maddest downright stupidest callers (myself included on a few occasions) imaginable.
Listen out for such idiot genius's as Yasser, Varinder, Ahrab, Gram, Barry From Watford, G-Man, Chicken Pie And Chips Boy, Sifu, Nasty Adam and Jim From Texas (who likes sandwiches amoungst other things) and a perverted old granny from Tottenham called Maureen ('Spank me bottom you naughty boy!').
