Hugely influential, surreal and anarchic parody of the variety show format. Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer introduce a selection of eccentric characters. The show often appears to be completely random, ramshackle and nonsensical.
BBC sketch show that while continuing to show the misadventures of a series of popular characters now also introduces a slew of new oddballs and misfits for us to enjoy including Tory Boy and The Lovely Wobbly Randy Old Ladies.
Popular BBC sketch show that introduces a whole host of memorable characters such as Tim-Nice-But-Dim, Wayne and Waynetta Slob, The Old Gits and teenagers Kevin and Perry. The show spawned a slew of spin-off series and films.

I recently wrote a review for scrubs stating it is the worst show I have ever seen, I stand corrected.
This has to be THE most unfunny show I have ever seen, even if the writing of the show was good (Its not, its obscene) the actors skill in delivering the unfunny jokes are so poor that even the most well written script would be ruined by there lack of talent.
I cannot fathom how this is a critically claimed show when the basis of it is failed celebrities answering questions that don't make sense and giving answers that they believe to be funny, while the audience looks on straight faced.
I think the main problem of the show is the utterly stupid content, it should not be classed as a comedy if even the audience rarely laugh at the poorly constructed gags.
I'm honestly telling you as a human being, do something else with your time, but don't even give this show a go, it is beyond description on how much of a searingly unfunny experience this was.
My hate for this show is so passionate that I about ready to plead to the BBC to cancel the show.
How it won anything or how anyone on this earth could find this un- witty, unfunny, poorly constructed piece of absolute trash funny, I cannot understand, I literally cannot grasp how someone could experience anything but pain watching this show.
