The triumphant return – live on stage – of Paul Calf and his sister Pauline "I’ve ‘ad ‘im" Calf with great bonus material as their creators tell how the Calfs came about and witness their original TV appearances on Saturday Zoo.

Live on stage at the Neptune Theatre, Liverpool:
Novice (and failing) stand-up Duncan Thickett welcomes back the chain-smoking "bag-o’-shite" Paul Calf and his "dead sophisticated" sister for a live performance. Pauline’s had her hair done, her belly pierced and a mis-spelt Chinese tattoo, while Paul has a new girlfriend, Cheryl Denton (played by Karen Taylor) and has souped-up his mum’s disability buggy. There are also some surprises: Paul treats us to a love song while Pauline performs an excerpt from her one-woman show, Floss – The Story of Florence Nightingale.

Saturday Zoo
Witness the legendary first television appearance of Paul Calf, as, week after week, he staggered on to the stage of a late night TV show to deliver a volley of anti-student abuse. And then, to cap it all, for the first time we saw the vision in stilettos and Top Shop separates that was Pauline …

Format: DVD
For many years now I have been a regular worshipper at the altar of all things Coogan. He is undoubtedly a comic genius with an unerring eye for the smaller details and idiosyncrasies which make his characters so much more than one-trick catchphrase vehicles with limited shelf-life. He gives them proper lives and full histories, and with the welcome return of each one we are updated on how their fictional life has progressed (or not) since we last saw them.
And so it is that we welcome back Paul and Pauline Calf for the first time since Coogan's The Man Who Thinks He's It tour in 1998. The venue is Liverpool's Neptune Theatre, scene of their Live N' Lewd show from 1993.
Much as I love Coogan's work - the writing, the attention to detail, the flawless characterisation - I couldn't help but feel a little disappointed with this show. In a nutshell, it is way too short. One gets the feeling that there was so much more on the night that we don't get to see. As it was originally broadcast on BBC3, perhaps it was cut down for scheduling purposes, in which case the DVD format would allow the full show to be included. Or perhaps Coogan didn't have enough material for a full two-hour show. Either way, once the credits rolled at the end I must say I felt a little short-changed.
The documentary is very interesting, it has to be said. Focusing on the writing and development process, it features interviews with Coogan and co-writer Henry Normal, where they talk in detail about writing for Paul and Pauline. We also see them workshopping ideas in a rehearsal studio and a comedy club (The Frog and Bucket in Manchester), where Coogan appears in character, script in hand, trying out jokes in front of a live audience.

Format: DVD
Paul and Pauline Calf's 'cheese and ham sandwich' is a laugh a minute,if only for 67 minutes that is.
Filmed live at Liverpool's Neptune Theatre back in 1993,novice Duncan Thickitt,one of Steve other characters introduces first 'dead sophisticated' Pauline and then brother 'i hate students' Paul for their extremely funny,if all too brief,live appearances.
Bonus material can be found in the form of clips from Saturday Zoo,the show that first brought us Paul,a more drunken version that was to be toned down in later years and crop topped and high heeled sister Pauline.
The making of Ham and Cheese is very interesting as Steve along with fellow writters Henry Norman and Tony Burgess explain how the characters developed and how new material was inroduced.
Only down side is the running time,67 minutes is all that stops me granting this an extra star rating but well worth purchasing all the same.

Paul and Pauline Calf aka Steve Coogan is hillarious. I used to watch Paul Calf on the tv in the 90's and really loved it, especially the classic jokes about students. When I saw a documentary about Steve Coogan recently, it bought it all back and I had to purchase this great dvd. My son loves it too, which goes to show that it still appeals (and also to the younger generation). Pauline Calf is wonderful too and very convincing as a lady.
