Peter Dibdin returns!

Richard Herring revives his driving instructor character from Fist Of Fun

comedyHe was first seen on Fist Of Fun 27 years ago.

And now Richard Herring has revived his character Peter Dibdin, a sarcastic know-it-all driving instructor forever belittling his pupils for being so stupid they don’t even know how to drive.

The comic said he got the idea to revive the petty-minded alter-ego with a love of an acronym after growing a moustache for Movember – combined with the realisation that, as with Steve Coogan and Alan Partridge – he is now the right age to play the character.

Stevie Martin co-stars in the new sketch, which was aired as part of Ally And Herring’s Twitch Of Fun, the comedian’s lockdown project that he co-hosts with a 128-year-old ventriloquist doll made by his great-grandfather.

And here’s the first sketch of the character from Fist Of Fun, co-starring Sally Phillips:
