A recording of the popular comedy show, The Fast Show, made at the Hammersmith Apollo in 1998, starring Whitehouse and Higson. The Fast Show (and to some extent Harry Enfield) was a step forward in British comedy.

A recording of the popular comedy show, The Fast Show, made at the Hammersmith Apollo in 1998, starring Whitehouse and Higson. The post-Python years were best served by Not The Nine o'Clock News (an irreverent, smug and often viciously satirical show which put Mel Smith and Rowan Atkinson on the map) and the aggressive, nihilistic Young Ones. The Fast Show deviates from previous shows in being character-based rather than situation-based, and managing to be gut-achingly funny without being overtly vindictive.

But Paul and Charlie were awash with ideas and characters and decidedĀ .

But Paul and Charlie were awash with ideas and characters and decided together to form their own show - a fast paced sketch show where the characters would come on, deliver a catchphrase, and exit. The Fast Show was born, and with it came an influx of new catchphrases that swamped common vernacular, such as "Brilliant!" "Very, very drunk" "Suit you, sir!" and "which was nice". Paul was also recently listed number seven in a Radio Times poll of the 50 most powerful people in British TV comedy.

Paul Julian Whitehouse (born 17 May 1958) is a Welsh actor, writer and comedian. In a 2005 poll to find The Comedian's Comedian, he was in the top 50 comedy acts voted for by comedians and comedy insiders.

A recording of the popular comedy show, "The Fast Show", made at the Hammersmith Apollo in 1998, starring Whitehouse and Higson, together with Simon Day, John Thomson, Arabella Weir and Mark Williams.

This compilation of sketches from the comedy series, features characters such as Ted and Ralph, coughing Bob Fleming, the "Suit you, sir" tailors from hell, and the bloke in the stupid hat. Pop down to the jazz club, the football field with Ron Manager or check in on the weather with Channel 9. It's bound to be a Scorchio!

Charlie Higson on how his legendary Fast Show second-hand car salesman, Swiss Toni, endedĀ . Nearly two years after the end of The Fast Show on TV, catchphrase kings Paul Whitehouse and Charlie Higson are back together for a live British tour. Brian Logan meets them

Charlie Higson on how his legendary Fast Show second-hand car salesman, Swiss Toni, ended up with his own comedy show. Published: 10 Feb 2003. Brian Logan meets them. Published: 19 Sep 2002.

For anyone who thought The Fast Show's recent return to the West End stage might secretly be the prelude to its triumphant return to the small screen, I'm going to have to disappoint you. Paul Whitehouse and Charlie Higson, the comedy pair who co-wrote and starred in the hit BBC2 show,. It's bound to be a Scorchio!

  • The Fast Show (and to some extent Harry Enfield) was a step forward in British comedy. The post-Python years were best served by Not The Nine o'Clock News (an irreverent, smug and often viciously satirical show which put Mel Smith and Rowan Atkinson on the map) and the aggressive, nihilistic Young Ones. The Fast Show deviates from previous shows in being character-based rather than situation-based, and managing to be gut-achingly funny without being overtly vindictive. The Fast Show is quick-paced sketch comedy, but over the course of the series we become acquainted with oddball but often loveable eccentrics and archetypes (miserable old man, the Cockney thief, the obnoxious sales assistants), colourful TV personalities (coughing Bob Fleming and jazz-show presenter, Louis Balfour) and even whole TV shows (the hilarious Chanel 9). This is not punchline comedy - the smutty innuendos of 70s prime-time shows like Benny Hill and Two Ronnies are few and far between - but thanks to brilliant writing, focus on three-dimensional rather than two-dimensional characters, and a gently lop-sided look at everyday situations, Paul Whitehouse, Charlie Higson and the rest of the team have created what in retrospect can be seen as the jewel in the crown of British comedy.

  • I first discovered The Fast Show while in England. It is a sketch program that consists of several recurring characters.
    It is blunt, crude, and very, very funny. I have played this countless times, and it hasn't lost its appeal.
