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.
The pair's follow-up to The Smell of Reeves and Mortimer, this BBC comedy sketch show features more surreal vignettes, as well as an ongoing mockumentary series called The Club - a parody of popular British series of the time.

I think that any negative comments placed on this show are simply untrue. I admit, i have seen only one episode, but 80% of the sketches had me in Stitches. Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer still know how to bring on the laughs, they cover the right issues in todays world, and give them a truly good Thrashing.
Although, some sketches are plain silly, like the gunman sketch, where they send a man who speaks utter gibberish to negotiate the gunman's surrender, although daft, i thought was brilliant, when bringing on daft laughs, and thats what comedy is meant to do right, make you laugh? .... Another great sketch, is 'Crocodile Botherer', where Steve Irwin is the Target, seeing a Domestic Animal in the English Countryside, running up to it, and Squashing it, by Jumping on it, is silly, but, so very Funny. Granted, a few sketches, are a bit hard to follow, but, in the sketches, where they are portraying a message, you get it. An example of this, is the Compensation Advertisement, which gives the whole idea of 'Advertised compensation' over a silly accident at work, a good kicking.
This Comedy show shown on ITV2 does exactly what it is meant to do, and it brings on the laughter in spades. Well Done ITV.
