  • The beginning of the legendary duo that is Vic and Bob, and a surreal show

    This started as a stage show that Vic created before finally making the transition to TV in the late 80's. I don't think anyone could have quite known what hit them, but the show was completely and utterly bizarre, but the second you get the show, i.e. get Vic's style of humor, then you will be engrossed just like I was. Characters like The Man With The Stick, Wavy Davy, Vic's rival Graham Lister and all the other favourites will have you dying of laughter. We see the birth of the Stots, a character that would appear in both of the duo's future shows. Oh, and "You wouldn't let it lie" soon became a popular catchphrase among all schoolkids at the time. Overall this is a show that for two series was a great introduction to the comedic style of Vic Reeves and his partner Bob Mortimer, and only better was to come.moreless
  • You would'nt let it lie!!

    Vic and Bob what geniuses and a show before it’s time. I know a lot of people and a lot of my friends included just did not understand this show but that was the whole point, it wasn’t a TV series to understand, it wasn’t something where they was plot’s, mystery and suspense, it was just good old British silly fun and that’s why Vic and Bobs big night out had such a big following.

    Who could forget Les, The Man with the Stick, Judge Nutmeg, Novelty Island, Wavy Davy and , yes it was silly, had weird slapstick routines and you were left wondering what was going on, but if you were a true V&B fan you knew exactly what was going on.moreless
  • What other people say about Vic Reeves Big Night Out doesn't bring it any justice.

    What other people say about Vic Reeves Big Night Out doesn't bring it any justice. To give it anything less than a 10 would be an outrage. What's good about it? If you need me to tell you what's good about it, it means you can't even tell the brilliance behind Vic Reeves Big Night Out. Nuff said.
