A British TV comedy series starring Stephen Fry
and Hugh Laurie
. There were four seasons which ran from 1989 til 1995. The show comprised of various sketches, often based heavily on wordplay. Hugh Laurie would often perform comical songs, and sketches were interspersed with aparrantly random vox-pops of recurring characters saying irrelevant statements. The most well known characters are probably John and Peter, hard-drinking, very dramatic businessmen who have a different business in each episode but are always based in Uttoxceter. The show is a classic but isn't particularly widely known. In series' 3 & 4, each episode ended with Fry saying "Please Mister Music, will you play?" and Laurie playing the theme tune while Fry hilariously mixed various unusual cocktails, including a Sodding Mary
. The show was pretty eccentric and fairly highbrow, with a side helping of innuendo and wordplay. And drag.
