This is a great show. True, its not Peter Kay or Jack Dee (as the previous review mentions), but it is equally as funny (funnier in my opinion) in its own way. Sometimes theres nothing more entertaining than a drunk throwing themself around. However this show isnt all about that. 18 stone of idiot has great guests who are asked highly unconventional questions ("Do you stick a finger up your arse while having a wank?" to Ray Winstone), Vegas trying to buy drugs from innocent members of the public, drunk celebrity poker, Neil Hamilton dancing for fish, an angry baboon and a bad budgie, just a few of the delights. My only complaint is that the DVD doesnt provide each episode, and only shows highlights of the series in one long feature. Its still very re-watchable though, and well worth buying.

As Johnny Vegas said in an interview, "we tried to make it so ridiculous that it couldn't ever be commissioned". This is top to bottom the whole outline of the show.

Every part of the show is exactly how you'd imagine Johnny Vegas to be like if it was just you and him on your own, his funny rants and and laugh out loud outbursts.
Also his out of control audience participation shows that even though he's now a TV star, he still incoparates the essence of his stand up which made him so popular.

There is cameos from the likes of Neil Hamilton who stands in a tank while fish are thrown at him and Chris Akabusi who is wire up to a machine to give him electric shocks to see how upbeat he keeps despite the pain. Johnny goes on adventures around London doing audience requests in "TV Democracy", such as getting to the bottom of Hamstead Heath's seedy going's on which results in Johnny chatting to a gay man about what he wants doing to him while they walk to a public toilet.

He also conducts in depth interviews with people from his own career such as Kathy Burke, Ray Winstone but also people who you just wouldn't expect such as Elvis Costello, David Soul and Huey from Fun Loving Criminals who in fact is such a good guests relaxes Johnny to the point where he lets his bladder go without warning.

The final part of the show which is done every show is where Johnny rides an odd vehicle down a ramp and over whichever guest is the show that week, just so that they can claim their winnings from Ladbrokes from a bet which was put down to say they wouldn't be able to do it. This is done for the sole purpose to buy booze for the audience so they can all have a party.
