Product description

Product Description

The Steve Coogan catalogue contains a wealth of characters which we’ve grown to know and ....hate: Alan Partridge in Knowing Me, Knowing You (KMKY), Paul and Pauline Calf and Tony Ferrino. As if this wasn’t enough, there’s all the misfits that feature in this DVD.

In Death of a Salesman we meet Gareth Cheeseman, in the corporate jungle he is truly a tiger. With only 3 days left of the Microsell conference, Gareth will do anything to clinch the deal that will elevate him to super-salesman status. Natural Born Quizzers introduces us to trivia nerd half brothers Stuart and Guy Crump. The only aim for these top draw saddos is to right the wrong that was the 1975 Top of the Class quiz final, which they lost and it’s going to take kidnapping, explosives, 20 years in a psychiatric unit and a badminton racket to do it! As the Handyman for all Seasons, Ernest Moss is a one man stand against the unscrupulous property dealers that ride into Ottle town and their cowboy builder chums. The Curator is a sinister tale of the ginger-bearded museum man who loses everything. From then on, the cost of admission is murder! Mike Crystal is the entertainer going nowhere fast in Thursday Night Fever and it’s only when he invents himself the toughest agent in showbiz, Clint Stallone, that things start to turn around. The zenith of this collection of misfortune and oddity is Get Calf - Fat Bob, Mum, Julie, baby Petula Dusty and Grandma Calf are back too in Paul and Pauline’s red hot tale of blue robes, dark forces and shagging.

From Amazon.co.uk

The six 30-minute episodes of Coogan's Run, originally broadcast in 1995, serve as a reminder that there's more to Steve Coogan than just Alan Partridge. Most Partridge-like here is the horrendous Gareth Cheeseman, the Ford Probe-driving sales rep in "Dearth of a Salesman", whose empty life unravels as spectacularly as his Norwich-based counterpart. Familiar from Coogan's stage act are handyman Ernest Moss, here accompanied by John ("Eccles Cakes!") Thomson, and Paul and Pauline Calf, whose "Get Calf" is the series highlight.

Perhaps because the other instalments venture into less familiar territory they tend to feel less successful, though both the writing and the characterisations are always strong. Paired with cowriter Patrick Marber in "Natural Born Quizzers", Coogan is a quiz nerd bent on revenge; in "Thursday Night Fever" saddo DJ Mike Crystal finds empowerment in a brash alter ego; while "The Curator" heads towards the spoof-horror territory later served up so disappointingly in Dr Terrible's House of Horrible. --Mark Walker
