Storyline

The Mad Kevin Turvey has been hired by the BBC to investigate things but rather than investigate 'norma'l things Kev decides to investigate stupidly bizarre things (like he does) and his rambling rants are a joy to behold The nonsensical mutterings of Turvey will leave you in fits of laughter, and this is another fine example of the comic genius that is 'the great'Rik Mayall (much missed already) Written by Gary Hardingham

Kevin will have you in stitches!
13 May 1999 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

First of all, this isn't a movie but a collection of comedy sketches. Kevin Turvey (played by Rik Mayall of "The Young Ones" and "Bottom" fame) is an investigative reporter who is given a topic each week to investigate and report on but rarely (ok, never) stays on topic! Instead, in his reports, he tells stories. Really STUPID stories that have absolutely NOTHING to do with the topic at hand. This video will have you rolling on the floor with side-splitting laughter! I recommend it to everyone as Kevin never fails to bring a smile to anyone's face!
