VERY FUNNY
11 June 2000 | by (STOCKTON-ON-TEES) – See all my reviews

Shooting Stars has got to be the most funniest game show I've seen. Reeves and Mortimer are so funny! They host the game show. I nearly wet myself when I watch them both.

Matt Lucas (George Dawes) is well, a baby, actually he is dressed like a baby and he keeps track of the teams scores. George Dawes can also be very funny, especially the episode on Shooting Stars when he dressed up as Elton John, I laughed and laughed for hours!

This is the best game show ever, watch it and laugh.

9/10.
