Comedy’s best kept secret ingredient gets another series of his own hit sketch show. This is the complete second series, containing sketches, characters, sound effects, a bit of music, some messin’ about, you know...
Kevin Eldon is a comedy phenomenon. He’s been in virtually every major comedy show in the last fifteen years, but not content with working with the likes of Chris Morris, Steve Coogan, Armando Iannucci, Harry Enfield & Paul Whitehouse, Stewart Lee, Julia Davis and Graham Linehan, he finally decided to put together his own comedy series for BBC Radio 4.
After all the waiting - Kevin Eldon Will See You Now...
Appearing in the series are Amelia Bullmore (“I’m Alan Partridge”, “Scott & Bailey"), Julia Davis (“Nighty Night”), Paul Putner (“Little Britain”), Justin Edwards (“The Thick Of It”), David Reed (“The Penny Dreadfuls”) and Catherine Shepherd (“Cardinal Burns”, “Harry & Paul”).
In the first episode, we meet Kim Jong Un’s haircut and David Livingstone’s trousers, plus we extol the wonders of drink and sneezing. Episode two, and we get to shape some hedges, eat some cheese,and play an exciting round of Ten Man’s Nancy. In the third episode, if you’ve ever been abducted by an alien, had an idea for a novelty teatowel or simply love escarpments, then this is the show for you. It’s also the show for you if you don’t have any of the afore-mentioned qualifications. And finally, in the fourth episode, carpentry, subatomic physics, Winston Churchill and how to deal with troublesome slugs all come under the microscope. Not really the best instrument for examining any of these things, one would’ve thought, but there you go.
Whether it’s a gift for a colleague you’ve barely uttered a word to or for Great Auntie what’s-her-name you only see once a year, there’s nothing quite like the annual public humiliation of a Secret Santa. But fear not – one of these stocking-sized books are guaranteed to get a nod of approval, whoever's name it is you pulled out of a hat.
