vic and bob...
17 October 2013 | by aaroninacaveSee all my reviews

i'm only voting on this because precious few have and it's only currently sitting at 6.8 which is criminal for such an amazing show.

to be honest it is difficult to write a review on a show that is so surreal but if you like the idea of cats in bomber jackets and the like then you will love this show.

come on and give this show a go and enter the crazy world of the crazy minds of vic and bob... look out for the adverts for random fruit and veg products! The smell of Reeves and Mortimer... better than Shooting Stars or Vics Big Night Out!!

by the way if you like this, try The Paul Merton Show.
