Like a sugar unicycle being ridden by a fork........
27 May 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Vic and Bob are the greatest 'surrealist' comedians since the Monty Python team.

And 'The Smell Of...' is their greatest achievement to date. Never have I laughed as much as when I first saw this on TV back in the early 90's.

*The schizophrenic folk singers Mulligan and 'O' Hare.

*Otis Reading and Marvin Gaye in a wardrobe.

*Film noir style vegetable adverts.

*Silent French flatulence shorts.

*The paranoid bra-men.

*Frying-pan fights.

*And of course, Uncle 'DONKEY' Peter.

This really is a show that cannot be adequately described on paper, so watch it for yourself and witness the genius that is Vic and Bob.

"Come on, let's have a look at it..."
