Product Description

Grim Mancunian characters brought to life by Steve Coogan (creator of Alan Partridge), in two Bafta winning spoof video diaries. In 'Paul Calf's Video Diary', Steve plays the title character as he and his friends bum around Manchester by getting drunk and doing Chuck Norris impressions. Coogan also plays Paul's sister, Pauline, who turns up again as the leading role in the second video diary: 'Three Fights, Two Weddings and a Funeral'. In it, Pauline is engaged to marry Spiros, a Greek man she met on holiday, but Fat Bob (or Fat Robert Esquire as he prefers to be called) is also in love with her. Both films also star Patrick Marber, John Thomson and Gary Olsen. As an added extra, there are previously unreleased interviews with Paul and Pauline.

Been waiting for years for this to come out on DVD, had it on video & final it is here. Love it. Really funny, the best work Steve Coogan as done. If you like Steve Coogan characters these are by far his best.

As with the previous reviewer I had waited for these to come out on DVD for ages having owned the VHS version.These are two of my favourite ever comedies. Paul Calf and Pauline Calf are genius comedy inventions and these two brilliant films are probably the highlight of their "careers".
How to make "normal" life so funny is Coogan's real talent and the fact we can all relate to what goes on in Paul and Pauline's world just make it even better. So many great lines ("I'm not wearing dead mans pants")it's just brilliant.

This was for many many years only accessible on VHS and with it being on DVD is an absolute god send! I was taking to a friend of mine, whom I got into Alan Partridge, as he is probably my favourite comedy character/show ever, and I mentioned this and he'd never heard of it so I decided to come on here on the slight off chance it might be coming out. I typed it in and there it was, available for DVD, instant buy, no thought!

This particular DVD is split into 2 different show:

The first is just 'Paul Calf's Video Diary' which documents Paul's and his best friend's, Fat Bob, Daily antics. Along the way they make a new friend, Roland, who is a student and Paul hates students, yet through their hilariously heated first scene they find friendship. From there they plot to help Paul get Julie back, with the help of Paul's sister, Pauline, which provides some utterly hilarious moments.

The second show is Three Fights, 2 Weddings and a Funeral which follows Paul and Fat Bob documenting the days leading up to Paul's sister's, Pauline, wedding to a suspicious Greek man called Spiros (who is played by the same fella who plays Roland the student from the first show). I don't want to go too much into his one without ruining anything but I would like to say that it is brilliantly funny.

I would love to be able to try and do this justice by quoting or explaining the scenes in it but I just can't! Just BUY IT, it's amazing!!!

I have had this on VHS for years and have been waiting for it to finally come out on DVD. I absolutely love it and have watched it over and over, can quote it line for line!! Best thing he has done in my opinion.

I first watched this years ago when a mate lent me his VHS copy. I spent years trying to buy a copy myself on DVD format and was delighted to discover that someone possessed the good sense to release this classic. Watching it now it is as funny as it was all those years ago. I'm not a huge Coogan fan but like most people find Alan Partridge compulsive viewing. In my opinion the Video Diaries are up there with Coogan's best works

Vintage Steve Coogan here playing, in my opinion, his greatest creations, Paul and Pauline Calf. this is so funny and memorable and quotable: Paul at the welfare office - "hiya Paul how would you like your social? Paul "Krugerrand s love"

Absolutely hilarious depiction of Manc lad Paul Calf, with his Chuck Norris haircut and total inability to function as a respectable citizen. Meet his mate Fat Bob, sister Pauline Lulu Calf, and two appearances by playwright Patrick Marber, as Roland the student and Spiros ("like a Greek god, only fatter and with a tache"). Very funny scripts and set-ups, this is a character Coogan ought to revive (Calf in his 40s, still on benefits despite getting four numbers once at the lottery?). One grumble - why isn't this on DVD yet? - my VHS is getting worn out.

I was really pleased to go back to Steve Coogan's early characters. Not only are they incredibly funny but it is a realization of how this brilliant performer and writer has continually grown in stature over the years. Anyone who is even remotely a fan should watch this production and if you are one of the millions of keen followers you are in for a real treat. Steve's depiction of a long haired wayward gay teenager is one of the most brilliant pieces of comic acting genius i have ever seen and the memory of it always produces chuckles of joy. Thank you Steve.
