Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Although only comedian Vic Reeves' name appeared in the titles, he co-starred on this surrealistic British sketch-comedy series with his longtime stage and writing partner Bob Mortimer. While most of the skits and gags were one-shots, the series also contained a number of wild recurring features, among them "Wavy Davy" and "Novelty Island." Fred Aylward also appeared on a weekly basis. Fourteen half-hour episodes of Vic Reeves' Big Night Out, together with one 45-minute and one hour-long "special," were telecast from 1990 to 1991.
