Amazing surreal comedy for those who "get it"
20 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Vic Reeves Big Night Out" is one of the funniest shows that I have ever seen. If you like surreal & nonsensical humour, this is definitely your cup of tea. If you need your humour based in reality, you will probably not like this show. I find that people either love or hate Vic Reeves - there is no middle ground. Vic Reeves & his comedy companion Bob Mortimer will utterly amaze you with their ability to come up with total nonsense. The show was filmed in front of a live audience who join in with catchphrases and occasionally are called upon to participate in the silliness. The show is like some sort of surreal music hall or variety show with Vic Reeves (billed as the "King of Light Entertainment") as the emcee. The set & props are all very cheaply done which I think adds to the whole feel of the show. I think that people who don't like this show are trying too hard to "get it" when there's really nothing to "get". The humour of the show comes from its utter nonsense. It is the sheer absurdity of the characters and their acts that is so funny. There is no underlying meaning. If you like this show, you should definitely check out Reeves & Mortimer's other surreal comedy shows "The Smell of Reeves & Mortimer" and "Bang, Bang, It's Reeves & Mortimer". These shows were made with a higher budget which allows them to go out even farther than on "Big Night Out" where they are limited to performing everything on a single stage. However, I definitely recommend "Vic Reeves Big Night Out" as a starting point. It really is one of the funniest shows ever made. Reeves & Mortimer are the funniest thing since Monty Python.
