Superb!
25 December 2001 | by expage2002See all my reviews

This show is just superb! All the impressions done by Alaister and Ronnie are just fantastic and spot on! Not only are the impressions brilliant but the sketches done involving the impersonated character are just so funny. I do not think that there has not been one episode where I have not laughed out loud because it is just fantastic entertainment! The best impressions though done by Alaister and Ronni has to be with David and Victoria, everytime they do a sketch impersonating them it just gets better and better! And the Eastenders' sketches are just as good! Alaister McGowan's big impressions is just a superb and very refreshing show and I'm sure that it has many good and laughable years left in it too!
