Trivia

Dennis tries to engage Woody Allen while he's walking down the street with Soon-Yi Previn. Paul Kaye later had a small role in Allen's film Match Point (2005). Kaye is a big fan of Woody Allen and said that he and his film crew spotted him by chance while in New York; he was reluctant to go up to him because he didn't want to offend him, but his producer ordered him to do it because they'd been there for several weeks and had produced very little usable footage.

A cult relic of the 90s!

DENNIS PENNIS: TOO RUDE TOO LIVE was the third and final video to be released of Paul Kayes TV interviewer from hell character Dennis Pennis. By 1997 it seemed Kaye had had enough of his alter ego and made this video to mark the murder of Pennis. The video contains several unseen Pennis sketches which the BBC deemed, too bad taste for broadcast, a sketch featuring the arch bishop of Canterbury inparticular. The downside of this video is that it contains far too many sketches of Kayes other over the top and vulgar characters which rarely amuse. The sketches are strung together with a rather tatty plot involving a character named Mike Strutter (played by Kaye) who is out for Pennises blood for a lame insult which leads to the murder of Pennis. The video ends with the pennis killed with his own microphone after finally being caught up after months of hiding out by which time his hair has grown and also a long red beard in a chilling sequence which leads us to the closing shots of pennises grave which reads, DENNIS PENNIS: 1995 to 1997. Still available for corperate work which leads to one more horror esquire sequence with pennis's arm pushing through the earth still holding the microphone only to end with him being run over with a tractor being driven by an other anti pennis protester and the credits roll.

In total there were 3 PENNIS videos made, the first of which, Anyone For Pennis shortly followed by V.I.P: PENNIS UNCUT(Which is the best) followed by DENNIS PENNIS: TOO RUDE TO LIVE. all 3 videos are now available on one DVD.

TRIVIA The video also features a rare pre stardom performance from David Walliams as a anti Pennis protester. Matt Lucus and Michael winner also perform.
