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.

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!

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!!

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.

...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....

By @GeekZilla9000 TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 1 Jun. 2011
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This DVD contains 4 extended "best of" episodes - an episode for each series of this late mid-to-late '90s amateur looking satire on pop culture.

For those unfamiliar with the show; each episode consists of sketches the majority of which are parodies of films/TV programmes - curiously they are usually made using toys and action figures. Initially The Adam And Joe Show looks a bit thrown together and childish, but you soon realise that the skits are based on clever observations and their dissection of TV series exposes them for the hollow shells they often are.

It's not just dire daytime TV shows which are lampooned here, more highbrow programmes are parodied too and the impressions are done excellently. This isn't an impressions show though and the true comedy comes from poking fun at the content.

As the series progress it keeps getting better, from being generally good with moments of brilliance it becomes a consistently brilliant series. I forgot how much Star Wars based content there was in Adam and Joe but watching it now it's obvious that they are big fans of the Sci-Fi masterpiece. Replacing well known personalities with Star Wars characters might seem a bit lame but it really does work well and they fit in surprisingly naturally. Using toys keeps the budget down and the 'homemade' quality of the series is central to the overall charm, Adam and Joe could quite easily be two friends at home with a camcorder and by laughing with them you feel part of it all.

Even their own DVD isn't safe from parody - the DVD menus are very funny and feature audio snippets which made me laugh as I navigated between series. The extras contain lots of additional material including more Toy Based film remakes and Star Wars TV Spoofs.

In a nutshell: There are a few weaker sketches initially but the strength of the comedy builds into a great social satire which still looks as relevant now as it did back in the '90s.
