Paddy O'Grady from Spike Milligan's short-lived sitcom 'Curry & Chips'
Heard about that and decided I had to try and watch some of it. Fucking hell. About 20 uses of the N word in the first 5 minutes. Different world.
Obviously it uses a lot of racial slurs which wouldn't be permitted on the telly nowadays, but apart from that it's a lighthearted romp which pokes fun at the racist working-class Englishman, as opposed to taking the piss out of the immigrant. O'Grady (or 'Paki Paddy' to his workmates) is generally the smartest of the bunch and comes out on top in every situation, much to the chargrin of his racist contemporaries.
That said, it seems the language used wasn't even acceptable back then - the show was either pulled or denied a second series (forget which) after too many complaints, and was only ever aired once.
