Vic Reeves (Jim Moir), who plays a cabaret performer in the film, nods to his recording of 'Born Free' in 1991 with 'Vic Reeves and The Roman Numerals' which reached number 6 in the UK singles chart See more »
A Gritty grim film about the school of hard knocks which leads to the eventual success (obviously) of funny cow. Some lovely cameos from various faces from British tv. Kevin Rowland to name but one. Music by Richard Hawley, he also is seen taking part in s talent show and later singing on stage in s working man's club with "coffee" played by Corine Bailey Rae.
It's a great film Maxine Peake is immense, likewise Alun Armstrong is wonderful as the bitter ageing comedian I'm not sure if this was originally a stage play, it does have that feel but don't let that put you off.
It's about a comic but it's not a comedy
