As the Beatles did in the 1960s, Michael Caine convinces Jack Nicholson, Joe Pesci, Al Pacino, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards to move to Stella Street, an unassuming residential area of Surrey. But along with the new neighbors come hoods and thieves, all determined to make off with the stars' cash. Based on the BBC sketch comedy series.
The pair's follow-up to The Smell of Reeves and Mortimer, this BBC comedy sketch show features more surreal vignettes, as well as an ongoing mockumentary series called The Club - a parody of popular British series of the time.
Alan Partridge a failed television presenter whose previous exploits had featured in the chat-show parody Knowing Me, Knowing You with Alan Partridge, and who is now presenting a programed on local radio in Norwich.
A British inspector is transferred to Saint-Marie's police department, but he hates the sun, sea, and sand. The series follow his investigations into murders on the island. Later series see another British DI head the investigative team.
The episode of Dirk Bogarde selling his house to prospective David Essex was censored when it was repeated. In the original Dirk gets a bit excited when Essex jumps on his bed. The repeat cut Bogarde's arousal as it was repeated shortly after his death. See more »
Why don't I stick a fucking grape on it, then string some fairy lights round it, and we'll see if it lights up like the god damn fourth of July. How's that for ya Dirk, huh? Now whadda you want.

Wildly original comedy. Impossible to do justice to in words!
Picture this - one Saturday night I come home after downing five or six
drinks too many, switch on the TV, start channel surfing and end up watching
a Michael Caine impersonator giving a tour of the street he lives in. It
turns out that his neighborhood is populated exclusively by other celebs -
Jack Nicholson, Joe Pesci, Mick'n'Keef, Dirk Bogarde, David Bowie, and who
knows who else. For a minute I think I've finally flipped my lid, but very
quickly I go with the flow, and enjoy one of the funniest and most original
comedies to come out of the UK.
British comedians Phil Cornwell and John Sessions between themselves
impersonate all the characters that live in 'Stella Street'. Some are
absolutely spot on, like Caine, others like Bogarde take a while to work
out. Anyway, it doesn't really matter. Give it a go and you'll find yourself
quickly hooked on the mundane yet surreal goings on of 'Stella Street's
inhabitants. A wonderful, wonderful show!!
