Reg Varney not the cockney slang but the "on the buses" star a man i found very funny, did well to get to here

Well I thought he was quite funny.

Good old '60s early '70s British nonsense comedy that didn't offend anyone, albeit too tame for todays kids. There was 3 films that made money at the box office, but they also made it to my worst films ever choice, purely on tacky cheezyness...

92 is a good age. All the family watched the early black and white and then colour " on the buses " sitcoms that were on satalite tv recently. We also have 2 of the feature films on dvd.

Well he made us laugh.:))

RIP Reg.

Sorry, but I didn't think he was funny at all.

I watched one episode of On the Buses but never again.

Although remembered for "Buses" he was a comedian in his own right and appeared in radio and theatre comedy, and I seem to vaguely remember him in variety too.

"Buses" was not his best output.

i didn't know he was in his 50's when he did on the Buses, he was great laugh, i remember one scene where they collected creepy crawlies and let them lose on the women drivers he he and when he drove a safari bus.

And do you remember that bus inspector the quirky one, the one who smiled without opening his mouth.
