Comedy genius
jbaccy9 May 2003
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!")

I can't believe this hasn't been released on DVD!

This was one of the best comedy series of the 90's and was extremely quotable with characters such as the Simon Quinlank and Rod Hull and it's an absolute disgrace that it hasn't seen some kind of release yet.

I rewatched both seasons of the show that I 'obtained' and they still hold up today as they didn't rely on topical humour that much which can date a series.

I personally don't believe that the BBC has lost the master tapes, I think it's more a case of Richard and Stu offending some BBC bigwig of the time which has put them into limbo.

Then again the BBC aren't the sharpest of people when it comes to releasing classics on DVD as I'm still waiting for The Mary Whitehouse Experience, Harry Enfield & Chums, Dear John and Manchild series 2 to become available as well.

Come on BBC get your stupid backside into gear and release this on DVD! I for one would buy it in a heartbeat!
