Wildly original comedy. Impossible to do justice to in words!
2 November 2001 | by See all my reviews

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!!
