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
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
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!")
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!
