I enjoyed the documentary much more so than the actual show. Funnily, the documentary reminded me how great the show was (not that I needed reminding) but the show reminded me how it could actually be a little boring at times. Shame. I think that's because some of the 'jokes' I don't find funny. But the ones I do are great. It's a great show anyway overall. The peanut song continues to be one of the funniest things ever put on film. I will never not laugh at that. I loved his new song too. Does Matt write the songs? He has a great talent for making funny songs up if so!

I loved Noel's comment at the start about how his mum fancied Bob. Of course! Doesn't everyone? :D

I had posters of Vic and Bob on my wall (they used to put them in Big and Smash Hits). I really fancied them growing up. I still do actually :D

Did they release born free as a single? I know I've got an album somewhere.

Yep. They also did Fast Show posters and i remember a kevin the teenager poster from Harry Enfield. I don't think they do things like that anymore in teen mags (not that i read any!)

That's it, how could forget that one with years of going to ice hockey matches and that playing out during the stops in play. Wasn't it with E.M.F?

Fab! Matt Lucas said on Twitter that he had written a follow-up to the baked potato song! That song made me laugh so much when I first heard it. I love his songs! Oh you're gonna get to see Bob and his cuteness live! Enjoy!

:lol: Vic looks a bit annoyed that you chose Bob to talk to! Excellent re new Catterick!! Bit disappointed it won't go out on TV if it happens as you say. Would they really go to all that trouble of making it just to put it on YouTube? But then I know YouTube is a powerful thing these days. Aw Bob seems so nice. And really happy new SS was great.

Have sudden desire to watch Catterick now.

Look at you meeting all your heroes! :D

So, to celebrate 25 years of Vic and Bob they are doing live shows.

I'm hoping they add some London dates to this.

I went to see them at The Hammersmith Apollo. They show was fantastic. All the old characters and they even made light of Bob's heath scare.
