Very Very Funny!!!!!!!!
31 January 2006 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

This was a amazing follow up to his previous live video. Filmed in The Palace Theatre Manchester in April 1998, Coogan skits himself and his celebrity status by posing as a classically trained actor and comedian who treats his entourage and fellow performers as dirt. This is occasionally funny but it lacks focus and it directly rips of his previous video Live'n'Lewd.

However this should never be the focus point of the review. What should be is the material and it's quality. This show establishes Steve Coogan's gift for comedy writing and performance. He begins with his ever lovable Pauline Calf who reads to us from her new book and she introduces us to her friend whom she she mocks only to have it all reversed on her. Next up is the UK's worst comedian Duncan Thicket. This sad excuse for comedian is one of the most wonderful comic creations of the who instantly wins the audience over by marching on stage backwards. This part of the show for me is one of the highlights of the show. Next to appear is the terminally horny Italian singer Tony Ferrino. His songs about marrying a lap dancing lad with their funky underscore made me laugh till my sides were sore. Finally gracing the stage was the irrepressible Paul Calf. Equipped with his can of lager and cigarette he proceeded to tell us about where his life was at. This however seemed tired and overused. The Paul Calf of previous years wasn't present therefore it overshadowed the whole show. This is why I have not awarded it a full ten out of ten. All he above was a warm up for the character that the audience came and wanted to see. This is Alan Partridge. Love him or hate him his unpolitically correct ways and his cracks at the guest prove hilarious.

This show is a must for any fans of Steve Coogan. I also would advise anyone that claims to be a fan of British comedy to watch this show if they have not because they will agree that Steve Coogan is one of Britains most talented comedians that ranks up there with Peter Sellers.
