Product Description

The Adam and Joe Show is the most influential late-night home-made British TV comedy show of all time. Armed only with a camcorder, stuffed toys, action figures and the contents of their bedroom, Adam and Joe satirise pop culture and modern life in a way you've never seen before. Unless you've seen it. Now, for the first time ever, the very best bits from all four award-winning series are presented here on this essential, jam-packed DVD.

Product Description

United Kingdom released, PAL/Region 2 DVD: LANGUAGES: English ( Dolby Digital Stereo ), English ( Subtitles ), SPECIAL FEATURES: Interactive Menu, Scene Access, SYNOPSIS: The Adam and Joe Show - Best of 4 Series Channel 4's late night home-made bedroom sketch show stars the eponymous Adam and Joe. From what was purported to be their bedsit in Brixton, London, come a series of satirical camcorder skits on modern life and popular culture. An irreverent series, THE ADAM AND JOE SHOW was renowned for its concise and hilarious spoofs of films where stuffed toys and action figures portrayed the characters. The spoofs included TITANTIC, SHOWGIRLS and THE ENGLISH PATIENT, as well as television shows such as ER and FRIENDS. The duo's unique brand of humour helped create a strong cult following. The release contains selected sketches from four series of THE ADAM AND JOE SHOW. ...The Adam and Joe Show

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, but... 21 Jun 2007
By Red Rob
Format:DVD
This DVD is superb, but I'm not happy.

I'm not happy because I don't want a 'Best Of' Adam & Joe compilation. I want to see all 4 series in a complete DVD collection.

Nothing else will do.

I don't have Virgin cable TV, so I can't record the stuff that Channel Four repeats on there which includes complete series of Adam & Joe. Grrrrrrrrrrrrr!

5.0 out of 5 stars Schmazin 5 Jun 2006
Format:DVD
What a DVD, the best of a show that is very hard to find the best bits of.

Look out for the Star Wars toy spoofs and extra free sketch in the first series.

Toytanic, Saving Private Lion, American Beautoy and many more.

A must buy for anyone who remembers, and if you dont remember, buy it any way because it is the best DVD you will ever buy!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant value above all else 23 Oct 2006
By Johnentwistlespout VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
After downloading their brilliant XFM podcasts I needed another fix of Adam and Joe, so I decided to revisit their indispensible late night TV series from the ninties; The Adam and Joe Show. The DVD includes a half hour best-of compilation for each of the four series and these are mostly made up of their toy movie parodies, which vary in quality and humour, a pity actually because I would have preferred to have more chat from the boys themselves. This DVDs true strength though is contained within the huge number of quality extras; they are absolutely superb and best of all is the documentary "The Adam and Joe Story"; this includes embarrassing footage from their early teens, late teens (also starring a young Louis Theroux), art school installations (quite cool actually), failed attempts to get TV deals, the making of all four television series and a number of unused, cringeworthy outtakes, including a memorable (and scary) moment with Jonathan Ross. So, something of a bargain this one and a must for all A&J fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars hit and miss... 20 Feb 2007
Format:DVD
...but mostly hit, and when Adam and Joe are funny they're up there with anyone. The problem I had with the show is the toy spoofs of blockbuster films. I don't find any of them funny, and pretty much every one they ever made seem to be included on this DVD so you can only conclude that Adam and Joe found them to be really really funny...apart from that, this DVD is a bit of a goldmine of great comedy moments. Most of the best of them involve the duo going undercover in public situations and acting stupidly, but the genius stroke is that they always somehow manage to make the unwitting public come off as looking even more stupid...the street artists who blatently get people's faces wrong, the quiz show with impossibly complicated rules, the guy who gets his front room shredded to pieces in the name of mid-morning DIY entertainment TV programmes and then has to just stand there bewildered, pretending he likes it. Best of all is Adam Buxton's demented alter-ego Ken Korda assembling would-be actors to make a ludicrously over the top issues-conscious "street movie" which they all take deadly seriously, but is in fact the worst film ever on purpose. (and there's a another sequence involving him setting up a terrible pop band using volunteer applicants, with similarly horrific results). Imagine a cross between Brass Eye and Trigger Happy TV and that would kind of describe what both of these guys do best.

EXTRAS: Billions. There are so many extras in this DVD that it was two weeks after I got it that I even realised there was a 50 minute long documentary of Adam and Joe's early years and outtakes in amongst the other stuff. And there's a lengthy documentary following "Bad Dad" as he gives his memoirs of the show which is actually quite serious in some parts....

Only trouble is series one is noticeably smuttier and definitely by and for teenagers. Starts to get properly funny at series two.

The clips from the first three series are superb and the Rober de Niro song is unforgetable ( evn if you would like to!) The laters series are dull and generic - bring back the toys boys!
