Two of the biggest names in Britain, Harry Enfield and Paul Whitehouse, re-unite after eight years for a sketch series with a gallery of completely new and absolutely hilarious characters!
The third episode of this hilarious sketch comedy features Barbican Man – a man from the 70s who walks into a modern day mini-mart and asks for alcohol free lager; the Posh Scaffolders – two incongruously posh builders who discuss arts programming, then change drastically when they pause to harass a young woman eating an ice lolly; football manager Jose Arrogantino who makes excuses for his star player’s assault on an old woman trying to hail a cab; and two policeman who are bored, so they decide to drive off and nick Pete Doherty.
Also features the rich, posh, gullible woman who buys an awful canvas painted by the shopkeeper’s drug addicted brother, for a fortune; the Chocolatier, who hasn’t paid his parking fines but manages to pervert the course of justice with chocolate; the two overly- friendly US tourists who meet a young Muslim woman in a newsagency and show her their photo album of ‘pretty’ people they met in Egypt; and the two High Wanking Surgeons who chat to the patient as they perform a colonoscopy, then skip off for a quick brandy.
Ruddy Hell! It’s Harry and Paul will be repeated on ABC2 – Thursday, February 26 at 9:00pm
