Firstly let me say, this is very funny, but there is a massive drawback to the DVD that may make u not want to buy this. Lucas and Walliams couldnt get clearance on the music videos that used to run on the tv. Now for newcomers to the show, I am sure ur response will be "SO?!"
To those that were there from the beginning this means none of Walliams dressed up as Lou Reed (Which spun off to Lou and Andy in Little Britain) wishing everyone "a perfect day, Thir (sic) or Lucas dressed as Jo Whiley, ranting about Abba gettin a rock profile before bands who just released their first album, another band just done their first tour, another just done there first gig last night, then a band she just made up.
Not forgettin the silly captions running down the bottom of the screen, these i thought were hilarious.
I found this abit of a let down to be honest.

I recently bought Rock Profile which I think is brilliant and had enjoyed watching way back when it was on UK Play. However, I have to say I am so disappointed as there is no music clips in any of the interviews! For me, that definitely made it, the hilarious contrast between their take off and the real thing, sometimes not that different! Of course the interviews are still there but its just not the same without the music....

I was a fan of Rock Profile right from Day 1, when it first aired on the then ONdigital UK Play channel, R.I.P. To anyone who 'knows' music, it was hilarious, and even bands I utterly detest such as Wham! and Bucks Fizz were made watchable by the hilarious pop-up voice overs and silly facts over the sometimes awful promo vids.
Now, on the front of this DVD, it states 'ALL 26 EPISODES'. On the back, in 6pt text, it states 'Some cuts have been made for contractual reasons'. I dont understand exactly how the PRS system works, but it would seem you can basically do what you want on TV and Radio under a block fee royalty agreement, but not with publically sold recordings. This has previously completely prevented the release of utter comedy classics such as Victor Lewis-Smith's 'TV Offal' and 2 series of Peter Baynhams radio serial 'The Harpoon'
To cut a long story short, 'some cuts' means EVERY SINGLE PROMO VIDEO has been deleted, as the pair almost embarrassingly state in the newly recorded intro - thanks for telling us once weve bought it!. This makes some bits just as funny, but renders many woefully meaningless, the most obvious being 'The Prodigy', since the joke was the whole ep. is filmed outside Keith Flints house because he wont let them in. All we hear is about 10 seconds of 'Keiths' voice over the entryphone at the start, the rest is occupied with 2 unfunny stalker type fans who turn up. And as there are no Prodigy videos, it might as well be the Rock Profile for the White Stripes!
From a technical point of view, on DVD 1 (Series 1) the loud 'stings' presumably inserted to hide the lack of multitrack sound masters (i.e hide the bits of edited out vids fading out over the start of talking scenes) make it harsh to watch too.

Far funnier than the repetitive Little Britain, however this DVD collection is annoyingly incomplete. The artist videos from the original series have not been included and so the short sketches that played over them are also absent. This means that the hilarious Ronan Keating part is missing. I feel slightly duped.

Disc 1 is very good and funny but disc 2 is very poor.
On the second disc I gave up half way through Abba.
Only Bassey and Tom Jones and Gary Barlow are funny on that dvd.
They had a good original idea and by the second series it turned into rubbish.
Walliams is pretty good on disc one but is the lazy repetitive comic on disc 2.
They sold out by then to go on to do the lazy repetitive Little Britain.
Compare Steps on the two discs.
Even Jamie Theakston knows it's garbage by series 2.

Best stuff is Boy George & Marilyn and Prince being a hobo in Glasgow.
That is creative and original.
But Duran Duran and Geri Halliwell - that is desperate comics who have run out of ideas.

Buy it but use disc 2 as a coaster, that's where the ideas dried up.

The comedy star of Matt Lucas and David Walliams seems to be rising spectacularly at present, with live shows of Little Britain selling out all over the UK, and script books, DVD box sets and more out for Christmas. Even such oddities as Vicky Pollard talking mugs are available for real superfans.
Whilst Little Britain seems unfortunately to be getting cruder as it bids for the mainstream (and who can blame its creators for wanting that; very few people make a fortune out of comedy so we shouldn't really begrudge those who can) - the vomiting WI ladies are repulsive, although they come from a sound comedy idea - Lucas' and Walliams' style is deceptively simple. Rock Profile, a precursor to Little Britain and shown initially on short-lived digital station UKPlay, is testament to this.
The basic format is that each episode features Lucas and Walliams dressed as rock stars and their cohorts, and they are interviewed by Jamie Theakston. The caricatures of the rock stars are created by taking an aspect of the real star's behaviour and tweaking it 200% in a bizarre direction.
The result is, nine times out of ten, extremely funny. Highlights include...
* Lucas as Michael Jackson's personal minder Elizabeth Taylor, complete with heavy Eastenders accent and permanent accusatory pointing finger
* George Michaels (sic) and Geri Halliwell ("I don't eat anyfing yellow!
