The Fast Show

Show Summary

The Fast Show was a multi BAFTA award winning tv show primarily written and produced by Paul Whitehouse and Charlie Higson. Higson and Whitehouse became friends at their university (East Anglia). Paul quit after one year and Charlie started performing in a band. They ended up in a flat together with Harry Enfield. Charlie and Paul were painters and decorators while Harry worked on his comedy character. One night there was a call from a producer who wanted Enfield's character Stavros to do the UK version of 'Saturday Night Live', and Charlie and Paul became his writers. Harry produced his own series 'Harry Enfield and chums' then later the group made The Fast Show a reality. The Fast Show injected a new lease of life into sketch shows. If you look at pre-Fast Show sketches you will see they move much slower but the premise for the Fast Show was, get them on, say something funny, get them off.
