Perhaps the funniest, most original new comedy,
This review is from: Bo' Selecta: Series 1 [DVD]  (DVD)
I must admit I was shocked. Not by the content of this DVD no...nor the one following it...no...I was shocked by the fact that at the Comedy Awards, Avid Merrion received niente for perhaps the funniest and most original comedy of this century.
His impressions of famous celebrities aren't impressions in themselves, in fact he completely recreates them. All the impressions have a horrible case of Turet's, but this makes them all the more appealing. The frightening Yorkshire portrayal of Mel B, the long chinned Will Young, the balling Osbornes.
All these characters are good fun, overshadowed and presented by freaky, frightening, Transylvanian Avid. We know Transylvanians are scary...check out the Cheeky Girls...but Avid is more so. His lusting for celebrities, his keeping his dead mother in a cupboard, his chaining Craig from Big Brother...who has somehow found himself on some daytime DIY programme....all good fun and a barrel o laughs.
Perhaps the greatest character on there is the Bear. In his celebrity interviews, he cripples the attractive female celebrities (with the exception of Christine Hamilton) with laughs as his own childish thoughts causes the poor little bear to get a conspicuous erection.
Great fun, worth a purchase.
