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 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!
