This review is from: Peter Kay's Phoenix Nights - Series 1 and 2 Box Set [DVD] (DVD)
Phoenix Nights is pure comedy gold and your life will be enriched if you add series 1 and 2 to your collection. Peter Kay is outstanding as the scheming non-political correct club boss Brian Potter and Max the daft doorman. The characters make up everyone you would expect to find in a Northern working men's club and they are all beautifully acted and crafted by Peter Kay, Dave Spikey and Neil Fitzmaurice. The premise of the comedy revolves around Brian Potter making the Phoenix club a success and trying to get one up on his arch nemesis Den Perry brilliantly acted by Ted Robbins. Dave Spikey is equally brilliant as the club compare and Max and Paddy (the doormen) provide plenty of laughs. There also some wonderful cameos from Roy Walker, Jim Bowen and some very funny dwarfs.
5 stars-one of the best sitcoms of the noughties
