Charming and thoughtful, laugh out loud ridiculous
5 February 1999 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

When Kevin Turvey made his first appearance, people couldn't believe this incredibly stupid young man had got a job at BBC as a investigating reporter, who "investigates everything properly, not like Keith Marshall". People actually thought Kevin Turvey was for real. But that is however not the case. It was one of British comedian Rik Mayall's first roles.

Kevin investigates serious topics such as death, sex, love, leisure and the supernatural. But it is seldom he actually talks about the topics. There are more important things to talk about - like Theresa Kelly. This is a unique and funny stand-up act that is worth both repeated watching and listening. You can naturally buy Kevin Turvey's investigations on audio books as well as at assorted gas stations all around the UK! Recommended!
