Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer have made a triumphant return to our screens with their slap-stick comedy and bizarre humour.
House of Fools is the latest installment into the world of Reeves and Mortimer, and any fans of the famous duo will adore the warped jokes that Vic & Bob have to offer.
I love Reeves and Mortimer, personally, and I was devastated when the BBC cancelled Shooting Stars (again). It didn’t take long though for Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer to team up with Dan Skinner (Angelos Epethemu), Matt Berry, and Morgana Robinson, and come back with the most bizarre sitcom I have ever had the pleasure to see.
House Of Fools rightfully earned a second series after such a brilliant first season was broadcast to comedy fans all over Britain.
It’s exactly what you’d expect from a programme called ‘House of Fools’, and exactly what you’d expect to come from the strange minds of Reeves and Mortimer. It’s the old style of comedy we fell in love with when Frank Spencer was rollerskating off the back of a double decker. It’s silly, unpredictable, and it will have you laughing until you cry.
Reeves and Mortimer have their experience with sitcoms, from their fantastic series Catterick, though the due are more used to sketches. House of Fools plays out like a comedy opera of sketches, with one storyline that remains prominent, though little sketch-like pieces make their way through, like the truth telling turban.
Some people have suggested to me that it is an acquired taste, but I absolutely adore the buffoonery of House of Fools, and I’m sure any fans of comedy will do too.
