This week I'll be mostly laughing at the Fast Show
22 May 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

When I first saw this it was in between two comedy programmes that I did like and I couldn't be bothered to move because it was Friday,9.30pm and I had clocked up 60 hours that week. I hated the show and thought it was totally unfunny. Next week came and same thing only this time I thought it was OK. Week after, again saw it and instead thought it was very funny. By the following week it was the brilliant show in between two fairly good comedy shows. Now it is established as one of my absolute favourite comedies ever.

Well done to the team who created this show it is truly refreshing comedy.
