Hugely influential, surreal and anarchic parody of the variety show format. Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer introduce a selection of eccentric characters. The show often appears to be completely random, ramshackle and nonsensical.
BBC sketch show that while continuing to show the misadventures of a series of popular characters now also introduces a slew of new oddballs and misfits for us to enjoy including Tory Boy and The Lovely Wobbly Randy Old Ladies.
Popular BBC sketch show that introduces a whole host of memorable characters such as Tim-Nice-But-Dim, Wayne and Waynetta Slob, The Old Gits and teenagers Kevin and Perry. The show spawned a slew of spin-off series and films.
I strongly advise everybody out there to catch this top show the next time it's repeated on T.V. as it is THE funniest thing I have ever seen, and makes you laugh the more you watch it.
Vic and Bob's previous comedy series where great as well, but this contains the best characters they have ever created:
Donald and Davey Stott, Mulligan and O'Hare (and their new album "Titty Biscuits"), and especially the characters in their spoof documentary "The Club", which is about Paul Baron, who owns Hulls 4th best nightclub together with his long lost brother from Hong Kong, Tony. Kinky John Fowler is the entertainments manager who discovers a new boy band "Mandate", and wild nights at Baron's nightclub include an erotic night, a talent night with some very unusual acts, and Les Dennis!
The biggest laugh comes however comes with the introduction of "America's most incredible vegetable!", a foul mouthed melon from Arkansas.
Vic and Bob's latest offerings (Shooting Stars and Randall and Hopkirk deceased) are O.K., but I wish they would make another series like Bang Bang, as they only made 6 episodes. Vic and Bob are geniuses!
