28 April 1999 | by alex-215See all my reviews

If you're not familiar with Alan I seriously recommend you get some of his stuff pronto, cos it is just too much fun.

And I have to say it: A-HA!

From the classy opening, to the parodies of guests ("Vivienne Westwood" is still the greatest thing ever) to "Glen Ponder and Debonair!" to Peter and Berni's Philosophical Steakhouse I just can't get enough of it. And Sports Casual!

Is this moribund?

Hots Pants! Tssssssss.
