"A Bit of Fry and Laurie" sets the gold standard for comedy sketch shows. Stephen and Hugh are best friends who have appeared together in many productions. They write and act all the sketches. In the first two seasons, they are occasionally aided by one or two other actors. Sometimes, one of them cross-dresses to create new characters. However, the vast majority of sketches consist simply of two Englishmen experimenting with different ideas. But Stephen & Hugh are so ingenious and work so well together that each sketch feels fresh and exciting.

The sketches are: Stephen Removes Hugh's Brain; Greek Restaurant; Costume Design; Nicotinal Preparation, Taken Bronchially (the highlight of this episode - a smooth-talking professional prescribes cigarettes to a credulous patient); Open University Outtake; Control & Tony; Routine, Door-to-Door Interrogation.
