A series of self contained TV films starring performers from London's "Comic Strip" comedy club and their friends. Noted for a high sense of parody of previous films, literature, and generally everyone in sight.

I also remember seeing this series in the U.S. on one of the cable stations years ago, and it stuck in my memory because of Wayne Knight and Emma Thompson, but no one I know has ever heard of this title. The one episode I recall the best was one of the younger guys being baptized in the name of "Cheezus" by having the priest shove his head repeatedly into a tub of liquid cheese. The cast also seemed to have a recurring skit where they were all sitting around in a living room watching television or at least talking; I can still picture after all these years Knight and Thompson sitting there. Overall the skits were more surreal than you'd find on some of our U.S. or Canadian series; it must be that wonderful British sense of humor. I'd love to own a copy of all the episodes, but I'm afraid that's a lost cause.
