"Let's hope no one calls this programme a load of sloblock."
12 July 2011 | by intriguementSee all my reviews

"A Bit of Fry & Laurie" sets the gold standard for sketch comedy shows! In its third season, the show benefits from a generous budget and the increased experience of its writing/acting duo. Although they feature the same two faces we've been watching for more than 12 episodes now, the sketches are still fresh, clever, and hilarious.

This episode's sketches are: Charlotte Bronte; The Invalid; Monologue: Hugh's Split Personality; Bushwallyta; Mobster vs. Dumb Questions (a fun preview of Hugh's excellent American accent); The Self-Styled Professor of Fragrance; Countdown; Neddy the Reluctant Prime Minister; Cocktail: Beef Goulash (one of my favorite mixing routines - it's hilarious to watch Stephen dancing around and shaking the packet of frozen goulash!).
