Like A Tudor Vaccum Cleaner
6 May 2006 | by (The Orchestra) – See all my reviews

I love Reeves And Mortimer in a way that can only be described via dance. However since you cannot see my dance, I will review it.

Reeves And Mortimer are geniuses. Who else could make farting Frenchman, pan fights and a pub in an organ so monumentally hilarious? Shooting Stars is the one everyone remembers but this is so good I'd like to cover it in fudge.

For those that are not initiated, the show was divided between many bizarre sketches (70's glam band Slade on holiday, Men In Bras, numerous TV mickey takes) and the pair's rather bizarre attempts to host a show, usually interrupted by Uncle Peter and a man demanding "booze for'baby".

In short buy it, treasure it and praise the lemonade for this fine pair!
