Six episodes with 15 different characters played by Peter Kay, before his Phoenix Night's fame. Including Brian Potter at the Neptune Club, Marc Park the soon failed pop 'star', Leonard the oldest paper boy in Britain (Based purely around a old friend of Peter's), Matthew Kelly and his first night as a steward at the M E N Areana and the famous Keith Lard, the fire safety officer.
The series has it all. All of Peter Kay's best creations on one DVD, even Max and Paddy make an appearance a long the line.
The DVD also has commentary, superbly done by names already mentioned, out-takes and alternative endings which are best left as out-takes and the pilot episode 'The Services' where you can see how Peter Kay's fame started brewing.
If you're a Northerner, you'll love it!
Although I don't think this is as funny as Phoenix Nights its just as entertaining. Its where all his creations in P.Nights stemmed from; and most the actors pop up in it somewhere too. Kay plays all the lead characters in this series and you start to forget its him under it all. Set in a bingo hall, working club, service station, paper shop, M.E.N arena, ice-cream van...the variety he plays is incredible. If you love Peter Kay, you'll love this!
Basically its 6 episodes of comedy 'mockumentarys'. Those of you familiar with Phoenix Nights will recognise a few characters. Who could forget Keith Lard, the Fire Safety Inspector who has a thing for all things canine...
As if that wasn't enough, on the bonus disk is the equally outstanding one-off show called 'The Services'.
All in all, another classic from Peter Kay.
