Rather more miss than hit I'm afraid....
13 June 2007 | by J-Stone-2See all my reviews

What happened to these two former heavyweight champs of Brit comedy? I used to think in the early 90s that Paul Whitehouse couldn't be unfunny if he tried and I really liked the Fast Show, Hary Enfield and Chums, etc.

Maybe time really has caught up with them and they can't do it anymore, just like boxers who go on too long.

It's sad because I was really looking forward to this 'comeback'. You get the feeling that Whitehouse was at a loose end after his comedy partner ran into his legal troubles and that Enfield has lost whatever he had (which was always less than Whitehouse in his heyday)

The only half decent sketch is the posh scaffolders... the rest are pathetic. I would rather these two never did anything again if this is all they've got. Quit while you are ahead guys!
