Product Overview

Before Hugh Laurie was House and before Stephen Fry was Wilde, even before they were Jeeves & Wooster, Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie wrote and starred in their own inimitable sketch comedy series on the BBC. Fry and Laurie explored a seemingly inexhaustible list of subjects with a delicious turn of phrase and elaborate wordplay. The hilarity included regular acts such as not- so-super spy Tony Mercheson and his boss Control, yuppies John and Peter, as well as the concluding cocktail recipe to the accompaniment of Mr. Music with plenty of Vox Pops. With four brilliant seasons of great satire, comic genius and hilarious use of language, Fry and Laurie are definitely at the top of the comedy tree.

Editors Note
Note Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie are best known outside of their native U.K. for the various acting roles they've taken in major productions. In Fry's case, big-screen roles in WILDE and PETER'S FRIENDS helped establish his name. In Laurie's case, the hit TV show HOUSE made him a firm favorite with American audiences. They are also known and loved for their joint turn in the irreverent comedy JEEVES & WOOSTER. But U.K. viewers first warmed to their talents at the tail end of the 1980s, with A BIT OF FRY AND LAURIE. The show is composed of a quick-fire selection of sketches, interspersed with Fry and Laurie donning various silly guises and being interviewed as if they were ordinary members of the public who have been asked to air their views on a hot topic of the day. The writing and performances are still as fresh as when the shows first aired, and demonstrate both the quick-witted nature of the pair and their reluctance to pander to their audience. The first four seasons of the hugely influential show are included here.
