Classic!
26 September 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This is one of the many jewels in the Comic Strip crown. All of the usual suspects are present and they're all in fine form. Only a brief appearance from Robbie Coltrane sadly.

It also stands the test of time.

Essentially it's like a spoof of beat poets and Warhol wannabes. Rik is at his very best as a frustrated artist who has just been dumped by his girlfriend. Dawn shines bright in this episode, especially when Adrian is haphazardly licking her boob whilst Peter commentates. And thanks to Nigel Planer, I'll never look at a banana the same way again. "Oh Dear! Oh Dear! Oh Dear! Oh Dear!"

Don't miss this one!
