They Dropped Us After We Only Got 8 Million Viewers

The Grumbleweeds is a British comedy group that gained popularity in the 1980s. They were known for their unique style of comedy, which combined music, sketches, and humorous banter. The group initially consisted of Robin Colvill, Graham Walker, and Maurice Lee, with other members joining and leaving throughout the years.

The Grumbleweeds became well-known through their appearances on television and radio, including their own show called "The Grumbleweeds Radio Show," which aired on BBC Radio 2. They were known for their comedic timing, character-based sketches, and catchy songs.

The group's humour was often family-friendly, and they appealed to a wide audience with their blend of visual and verbal comedy. They toured extensively, performing live shows across the United Kingdom.

Although the popularity of The Grumbleweeds waned in the late 1980s and 1990s, they continued to perform and make occasional appearances. Their legacy as a comedy group from the 1980s remains, and they are still fondly remembered by fans of British comedy.
