"God Save the Quens!"
12 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After the weak first two episodes of season 4, "A Bit of Fry and Laurie" is never quite as hilarious as it was in previous seasons, but it is still fun. Stephen & Hugh spend a bit too much time introducing their guests and repeating old routines, but the sketches are plenty funny.

The sketches are: Cold Open: Oprah Winfrey; Intro: Be Comfortable; Guests: Stephen Moore & Phyllida Law; Racecar Driver; Councilman Kenneth Wade ("Family Values and Cleanse Living!"); Mark Bannister; Please Call for British Telecom; Mr. Burmy (so hilarious and cringe-inducing!); Cream Slice; Exterminators; Cocktail: Swinging Ballsack.
