    Anyone else a fan of this show? Just 'procured' this and fist of fun - not available on dvd unfortunately - to revisit my youth. Its ridiculously funny (imo) and from watching it now I can't believe it was shown on a sunday lunchtime.

    I have vague memories of it, I've been meaning to look it up again after listening to some of Lionel Nimrod's Inexplicable World on iPlayer recently when BBC7 were repeating it. These youtube links will provide a handy starting point.

    hmmmm I forgot all about that show, I used to enjoy it, but I dont think I can look at your man any more after his absolutely dire "comedy vehicle" show.

    That Comedy Vehicle is absolute f**king rubbish.

    Give Kevin Eldon his own show.

    Fist Of Fun was Genius, especially Peter, the hobo.

    The Nostradamus sketches on TMWRNJ were great...

    I was goinf to ask for a copy, but I just found them!
  7. avatar The_Martyr
    Yeah I absolutely love it, I remember as a kid just thinking 'I have finally found out that my sense of humour isn't warped, because these people are laughing too!'

    The milk sketches were great, or the dancing on the sofa. It's all classic.

    This is a great poke at Joe Pasquale by Stewart Lee:

    I'm a big fan, actually.

    It's the only programme on TV at the moment which I would watch.

    I loved This Morning With Richard Not Judy, back in the day. It was 'must see' viewing.

    I quite like that comedy vehicle, although it's very patchy.

    Very post-modern too, like the bit where he realised that he'd ended on a not very good punchline and ended up climbing the walls begging for enough applause to see him out.

    But it is dodgily patchy though. And repetitive. Dodgily patchy and repetitive. A dodgily patchy and repetitive comedy vehicle. On BBC2. A dodgily patchy and repetitive comedy vehicle on BBC2. That you plebs are all watching. A dodgily patchy and repetitive comedy vehicle on BBC2 watched by plebs.

    Aye, it's alright though.

    That was called "reflective review"....it's very po-mo

    I rather like Comedy Vehicle as well, though episodes 3 and 4 were nowhere near as good as 1 and 2.
  13. avatar PhatBob
    Yeah I concur - 3 and 4 were no 1 and 2 but its still a fine piece of TV.

    TMWRNJ and Fist of Fun were excellent - Which one was Rod Hull on? With his mad love for Jelly...ah yes halcyon days.

    Drink your weak lemon drink now.

    It's strange that he hasn't been given his own show, considering he's been in almost everything else that's ever been on TV.

    GREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEN JELLY! I AM ROD HULL!

    Yeah, that was Fist Of Fun.

    I loved both shows, and I think the Comedy Vehicle thing on at the minute is good too.. sometimes I feel like he drags jokes out to death, but mainly it's good times.

    I still occasionally say "Drink your weak lemon drink...Now" and talk about old men with bourbob biscuits, but had forgotten which show it had come from.

    Think the comedy vehicle stand up parts are great, but the sketches are pretty sketchy.

    They are a wee bit duff, it has to be said.

    I really liked last night's comedy vehicle.

    But the sketches were the worst yet.

    I just can't get the March of the Penguins skit out of my head.

    (Morgan Freeman Narrates.)"There goes the little ol' mallard, about to fuck the dead mallard in its ass, in a dance as old as time"
  19. avatar feline1
    They were splendid shows.

    I loved sketches were Stuart Lee would do something bad (like crying wolf) and get told off for not being funny and he'd go "Ah, but it's PRECISELY BECAUSE it's not funny that it makes it all the more funny that I'm still doing it!"
    Or something.

    I laughed until I thought I wouldn't stop at Del-Boy.... falling through the bar... on Only Fools & Horses.

    And Trigger made a face.

    Play it again!!! Play it again until the rocks melt and the seas burn!

    Tis a great show... When i watch it I giggle almost as much as I did as a little boy when I figured out how to flick my snotters with distance and precision at the back of the angelic head of Tara Chesterton. Oh Tara...

    The clues were all there; she would grow up to be a beautiful, bountiful breasted woman. Oh Tara... My love... My one and only... If Only I had known there was bodily produce that I would enjoy flicking over you more.

    I was just sooo young, foolish, naive in fact.
    If any of you know Tara, apologize for my past transgressions, let her know I'm sorry...

    Tell her I know of a rather spiffing show we can watch together on a Monday night at ten. I think it would be more fun watch it with her, my head resting on her volumptiousness, rather than watching it alone with nothing to rest my head on but this sodden pillow with its funny smell and persistent silvery stains.

    Oh Tara........
    I still think we can make it...
    I still think we have a chance...
    If you are reading this, know I still think of you at least three times a day... Five sometimes if I get enough time to myself...

    Sorry I've got a little carried away. Did anyone notice that the script for Comedy Vehicle was edited by a certain Christopher Morris?
    I did. Where is my Blue Peter Badge?
  23. avatar greensleevesisgod
    Well in a way kevin eldon was the star of Jam which has to be my favorite Chris Morris related Tv show. Its the best thing ever.

    TMWRNJ was my sunday morning activity. Twas like going to church. Twas Eggciting. Eggalicious. Eggy Eggs.

    the funniest thing is that Stuart Lee now is as fat as Richard Herring was then....
