I came to Dave Spikey not via Phoenix Nights but via the 'Overnight Success' stand-up DVD he did and seeing him live.
I thought it was a pretty good attempt that didn't always quite work but was certainly better that the vast majority of dross ITV serve up as 'comedy' (or should that be 'served' - as they don't seem to attempt or produce anything comedic nowadays!).
There might not have been many 'fall on the floor' laughs but there were lots of chuckles and smiles.
Dave was pretty good as the erratic and confused editor looking for a 'good story' and Johnny had a role that wasn't totally pist (on the Irish black stuff) caricature that he was prevailing at the time.
I'd like to think that given another series Dave & Johnny could have come up with something wonderful.
I'd like to be able to see it again to re-evaluate it, but copyright stuff (the music I believe) has put a pox on that for the time being.
