Watch Celeb? You Don't Want To Do That!
15 October 2002 | by General UrkoSee all my reviews

Celeb details the 'hilarious' misadventures of millionaire middle aged rock star Gary Bloke & his young blonde wife.

Based on a strip in Private Eye the impetus for bringing this to the small screen must have been the success of The Osbournes. Belonging firmly in the category of "seemed like a good idea at the time" this new sitcom is consistently short on laughs. The first show opens with a good gag but then goes dramatically down hill.

Gary Bloke himself is a tired rehash of previous Enfield creations, most noticeably Kevin the teenager. Celeb feels like a sketch stretched out to fit the sitcom format. Indeed it may have worked as a recurring character in a Harry Enfield & Chums style show but can't sustain an entire series alone. The casting of Amanda Holden is a pleasant distraction during the many mirthless minutes though!

Basically this just isn't funny. Harry Enfield was once a great comedian creating memorable & witty characters alongside fellow stars Paul Whitehouse, Charlie Higson and Kathy Burke - does their absence have anything to do with his recent drop in quality? Now it just seems like he isn't trying very hard, content to rehash elements of previous creations in a lazy plot. After sitting through Celebs practically joke free 30 minutes the phrase that springs to mind is . . . Oi Enfield! No!
