Comedy genius
9 May 2003 | by (England) – See all my reviews

This was a hugely underrated show when I was a kid, and although alot of brilliant comedies have come and passed, fist of fun remains the best of the bunch. In the same vein of the smell of Reeves and Mortimer, this is a British comedy show that plays off as a variety show, with filmed sketches and many regulars, involving a mock up of Rod Hull with a fake arm, and the hobby master. I think it is quite possibly the only series to feature the recipe for "chicken lollies."

A gem of the sketch show age that spawned such greats as "the fast show" and "The smell of reeves and Mortimer," this can't be missed as a relic of British comedy before it lost it's way. (oh shame on you "my hero!")
