Vic Reeves Big Night Out began life as a theatre show in South East London in 1987. It was a tumultuous, passionate and Hogarthian display of glee filled music hall nonsense that lasted up to three hours long. Each week the show was freshly written and the supporters flocked from distant regions to applaud this diabolical infringement on taste and dignity. In 1990 the show was pared down to half an hour and transferred to Channel 4, where it aired to total and undiluted indifference! Within a week it had become a monumental success! Viewers from parishes as far away as Weston-Super-Mare and Bangkok tuned in in order to relish the amusements displayed by characters such as 'The Man with the Stick', 'Les' and 'Wavy Davy'. Vic's chief diversion was however, the monstrously deformed yet highly animated 'Bob' Mortimer, his nemesis and inquisitor without whom he could never have existed! Between the pair of them they forged new and undiscovered paths in the world of light entertainment! The Digital VD you are considering buying for a distant nephew contains the complete episodes of their two series' before they were shot, plus numerous supplements including interviews with the culprits and the people who endorsed their meagre talent.
