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.

Amiable, distracting enough series for those who like sketch shows
8 October 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

STAR RATING: ***** Saturday Night **** Friday Night *** Friday Morning ** Sunday Night * Monday Morning

It would appear the British public like nothing better on their Friday and Saturday nights than to stay in and have a good chuckle. The comedy sketch show is certainly a popular trend for this, coming ten a penny nowadays from any duo with the kudos to pull it off. But in Harry & Paul, we have two old timers, who came before a lot of the more modern ones with Enfield's Harry Enfield and Chums and Whitehouse's The Fast Show. But as the years have passed, the boundaries have been crossed more and more and gloriously non PC humour is now the trend. It has now emerged that the Phillipino government is in uproar over a skit involving a Phillipino maid and is, amongst other things, starting a petition to have the show makers apologize. It's also emerged that Enfield wanted to play a paedophile priest and a Muslim hoodie but was refused, so like many comedy performers nowadays, he's willing to be outrageous to get the attention.

There's nothing in this that's made me really laugh out loud, but it's amiable and distracting enough, and not afraid to cross the line when the skit requires it. ***
