Coogan's Latin Lothario
22 August 2006 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

Back in the '70's, the B.B.C. used to screen music shows on Saturday nights based around popular singers such as Cilla Black, Lulu and Shirley Bassey. With their garish, tacky sets, outrageously attired dancers, unctuous guest-stars, cheesy songs, and unfunny links, they were absolute hell to sit through. 'The Tony Ferrino Phenomenon' is a brilliant lampoon of these; top marks to Steve Coogan and Henry Normal for capturing the look and feel of these shows. Some of the songs, such as 'Bigamy At Christmas', 'A Short Term Affair' ( a duet with Kim Wilde ) and 'The Silence Of The Lambs', are so brilliant you wonder why they haven't been released commercially. Ferrino himself is a perfectly realised composite of several singers including Tom Jones, Julio Iglesias and Engelbert Humperdinck - his command of the English language is poor, and his disastrous attempts to flirt with his female co-presenter are hilarious. Sadly, unfavourable comparisons with Alan Partridge and Paul Calf resulted in Ferrino's early demise.
