2.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, but the best bits are missing, 1 Feb. 2005

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kenny Everett - The Complete Naughty Bits! [DVD] (DVD)
This DVD is indeed a reissue of some of the material KE recorded for Thames in the late 1970s. At its' time, this was one of the best things on early-evening TV. However a lot of the best stuff is missing from the DVD, presumably due to clearance issues. This includes all of the guest bands, so you don't get to see any of those (Bowie, Roxy, Costello, Lizzy, Pretenders et al). Also, the deadpan cameo appearances by many other guest stars (Mercury, Bowie, Billy Connolly etc) are conspicuous by their absence. What you get instead is few of the Kremmen cartoons and a selection of Kenny's early characters all performed to camera, and a lot of filler (Hot Gossip...oh please). I would recommend tracking down the original VHS tapes if you want an idea of why this show was so good in its' day.
