5.0 out of 5 stars Kevin...is that you Kevin???
Kevin Turvey is one the earliest characters Rik Mayall made famous in the very early 1980's...Kevin is a loner "although he did once have a hat" according to his mother who is an executive receptionist at a local hairdressers..then of course there is Mick the Lodger played successfully by Robbie Coltrane. This video basically follows Kevin and his insane quest...

3.0 out of 5 stars Rik at not-quite his best but still funny
Not Rik's best work by far, but still quite a few laughs to be had in this - especially with the german sausages in Tescos... check it out at this price its a steal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kevin...is that you Kevin???, 21 April 2001
By A Customer
Kevin Turvey is one the earliest characters Rik Mayall made famous in the very early 1980's...Kevin is a loner "although he did once have a hat" according to his mother who is an executive receptionist at a local hairdressers..then of course there is Mick the Lodger played successfully by Robbie Coltrane. This video basically follows Kevin and his insane quest for "another busy day's investigatings" including his hilarious re-enactment of The Battle Of Redditch and his trip downtown will leave you wishing you brought spare pants! His handy tips including "Cream Crackers ready Spread" and a guest song from his mate Keith Marshall played by partner in crime Ade Edmonson is one of the funniest songs you will ever hear. Kevin's rendition of Petulia Clark's classic "Downtown" at the end of the tape is bed-wettingly funny...also Kevin dreaming and talking to himself about " all these Japanese action men..they came out of the telly..and Dave the elephant..he sat on them!!" you won't want to miss this! This video is essential for any Rik or Ade collection, it is raw, it is absolutely hilarious and it is the funniest early footage of Rik you are ever like to see...get it now! It's a bargain.

4.0 out of 5 stars I'm not covered in sick- It's just a new anorack!, 11 Jun 2003
This review is from: Kevin Turvey Investigates [VHS] (VHS Tape)
Rik Mayall doing what he does best- making us laugh! Basically the video is Rik sitting in a chair, retelling his unfortunate experiences as an investigative reporter. His charactor Kevin Turvey, is an unfortunate lonely youth, who sports an anorack that has been likened to sick. His accent is hilarious and the whole video will have you splitting your sides! Find out amazing facts like Why Mrs Thatcher wears barbed-wire underwear, why you shouldn't eat powdered rhinos horn and why you shouldn't wear your pyjamas to the pub! The best bit is where he retells us how he became a prostitute- outside tescos, handbag and all! Watch as Kevin investigates, sex, death, the supernatural, nasty little sticky things and much, much more! A must for any Rik fans, the comments he comes out with are classic, 'Death- The Grim Rapist.' I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
