Quotes

Hugh: Oh, well, it's because I'm deaf, sir, that my sense of vision is naturally enhanced. Blind people are known to have very keen hearing. So they sort of cancel each other out, sir.
Stephen: You mean you can see and hear perfectly?
Hugh: Yes, because I'm blind and deaf.

The start of something lovely!
9 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"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.

This episode's sketches are: Cold Open (Tango 1 and Tango 2); Vacation Pictures; Stephen & Hugh Address the Audience (Eye Problems); Privatized Police Force; Argue the Toss/Up the 'Arts'; Deodorant Commercial by William Wegman; Monologue: Stephen's Loveliness; There's Something Wrong with My Suit; Hugh Sings "Mystery"; Executive Breakfast Lounge; Toy Car Salesman; Australian Soap Opera.
