The pair's follow-up to The Smell of Reeves and Mortimer, this BBC comedy sketch show features more surreal vignettes, as well as an ongoing mockumentary series called The Club - a parody of popular British series of the time.
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.
Tommy Saxondale is an ex-roadie with anger management issues and his own pest control business in Stevenage. Having survived a hostile divorce, Tommy now lives with his girlfriend Magz. ... See full summary »
Popular BBC sketch show that introduces a whole host of memorable characters such as Tim-Nice-But-Dim, Wayne and Waynetta Slob, The Old Gits and teenagers Kevin and Perry. The show spawned a slew of spin-off series and films.
One of the funniest and most original comedies ever!!!
Vic & Bob are back!!
Irreverent humour at it's absolute best. This program shows exactly the sort of python-esk comedy that the BBC so badly needs, but this show is definately a post-watershed show and is all the better for it as there is nothing else like it (or ever imho).
Vic plays Chris, a 70's permed guy who is a few cans short of a six pack with Bob playing Carl, a man whose come back home from the army to look for his long lost son. Both Vic and Bob also play other roles including a nutty police inspector and a cross eyed accident victim getting laid respectively.
Add in Matt Lucas as (amongst other roles) the Psycho Hotel Manager with the strangest accent ever heard (Scouse meets Geordie meets Indian meets German meets French) who constantly picks on the porter which must be a tip of the hat to Basil Fawlty, Charlie Higson as a Barman and Morwenna Banks as the Hotel Receptionist who is married to the Hotel Manager.
Can't wait to watch the rest of the series and would recommend it to any fan of the genre.
