Description

Reeves and Mortimer are the comic sensation of the 1990s. This twosome has become a household name with a unique style of turbo-charged comedy which is also a living history of modern humour. On the one hand they seem to have the ability to be tap into the British appreciation of the completely puerile and on the other hand they can create comedy as clever and sophisticated as anythingby the Pythons, Spike Milligan or Jacques Tatti. The book of the Big Night Out sold 250,000 copies, The Smell of Reeves and Mortimer won a Silver Rose at Montrose, Shooting Stars is the most popular TV show on BBC2 pulling in nearly 6 million viewers and they now tour 2000 seat theatres. But like all success it's not been a fairy tale and the pair can be difficult to work with.They are known for using support acts and dropping them if they get good. Their working methods are punctilious and professional sometimes to a fanatical degree.show more
