Only Hollywood itself could be stranger than Stella Street
"A lot of famous people live on this street." Michael Caine guides us 'Alfie' style around his ordinary but not ordinary life on Stella Street, a street in sleepy London suburb, Surbiton. Somehow a vast number of stars (and Jimmy Hill) have all ended up living on the same street, including Jack Nicholson, Al Pacino, David Bowie, Mick and Keith from the Stones and many more. Impressionist and Comic Strip regular, Phil Cornwell has teamed up with fellow impressionist and film actor, John Sessions to make the comedy impressionists dream show. Directed by accomplished comedy director, Peter Richardson and written by the two stars, 'Stella Street' is an irreverant, anarchic, surreal, well-observed and down-right hilarious comedy. The first series was shot on a particularly thin shoe string and gained a cult following after late night showings on BBC. Series two boasted many more characters, a slightly glossier look and even nearly had a plot structure. Series three will appear sometime in early 2000. Anyone who likes the slightly weirder side of British comedy will love it, only Hollywood could be stranger than Stella Street.
