WASHINGTON Satire the late George S Kaufman once remarked is something that closes on Saturday night That gloomy dictum is fast deing disproved by a scattering of bright British young men who are busy in the United States as well as in their native land Britains broadest satire at the moment is probably the sprightly and irreverent tele vision show That Was the Week that Was Despite the fact that it is aired by the gov ernmentowned British Broad casting Corporation it even goes so far as to make fun of royalty A recent skit entitled The Queens Departure had the royal barge sinking with Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip aboard I When the same skit was in corporated into a revue in cidentally it was ruled off the stage by the Lord Chamberlain Britains censorship of legiti mate theatre bars portrayals of royalty Rather more arcane is a new biweekly magazine Private Eye Although a frequent target of its staff Prime Min ister Harold Macmillan sent them New Years greetings Randolph Churchill presented a subscription to Pierre Salinger President Kennedys press sec retary Later Churchill upset by some jaundiced cracks at his projected biography of his father Sir Winston sued

legislative majority then I say points out What is done to Harold Macmillan for instance shouldnt be done to any chief of state not even if he has been a publisher and yet it needs doing One of the Beyond the Fringe group Peter Cook who runs the Establishment Club in Soho a center for the new satire has brought over a cafe revue called Establishment which outdoes its parent for deviltry Although this has been a sellout in Chicago Washing ton and now New York its humor is so rough and mordant again and again so spang on target that American audiences find parts of it tough to take And when a member of the Macmillan cabinet is identified by name as a homosexual one is inclined to wish young Cook who wrote as well as produced the show had retained a modicum of British rcticejnce So much of the new British satire is political that one wonders why it has proved so attractive here where the taste for sharp political quips has long been neglected The young men of Beyond the Fringe letj
