Comedy’s best kept secret ingredient gets another series of his own hit sketch show. This is the complete second series, containing sketches, characters, sound effects, a bit of music, some messin’ about, you know...Kevin Eldon is a comedy phenomenon.
He’s been in virtually every major comedy show in the last 15 years, but not content with working with the likes of Chris Morris, Steve Coogan, Armando Iannucci, Harry Enfield & Paul Whitehouse, Stewart Lee, Julia Davis and Graham Linehan, he finally decided to put together his own comedy series for BBC Radio 4.
After all the waiting - Kevin Eldon Will See You Now...Appearing in the series are Amelia Bullmore (I’m Alan Partridge, Scott & Bailey), Julia Davis (Nighty Night), Paul Putner (Little Britain), Justin Edwards (The Thick Of It), David Reed (The Penny Dreadfuls) and Catherine Shepherd (Cardinal Burns, Harry & Paul).
In the first episode, we meet Kim Jong Un’s haircut and David Livingstone’s trousers, plus we extol the wonders of drink and sneezing.
Episode two, and we get to shape some hedges, eat some cheese,and play an exciting round of Ten Man’s Nancy.
In the third episode, if you’ve ever been abducted by an alien, had an idea for a novelty teatowel or simply love escarpments, then this is the show for you. It’s also the show for you if you don’t have any of the afore-mentioned qualifications.
And finally, in the fourth episode, carpentry, subatomic physics, Winston Churchill and how to deal with troublesome slugs all come under the microscope. Not really the best instrument for examining any of these things, one would’ve thought, but there you go.
No Kevin - Enough !
Mr Eldon, please, please, please refrain from simply larking about in support of others.
Mr Eldon's agent, please stop Kevin, right now, before it's too late - statistically he's only got about 30 years left. Surely that warrants some sort of intervention or support, clearly at this point he's an endangered species - !
Mr Eldon brings to audio comedy; a clarity of purpose, supreme timing, matched by technical audacity, an incisive wit and a subtle understanding of conversational nuance. A verve and energy that teeters way over the edge, into the surreal.
Series 2 celebrates, subverts, and sidesteps pretension with a myriad of comic approaches, bringing a knowing wit and subtle cadence that is both explosively funny and utterly charming.
He is, in short, a comedic polymath.
Let him run free !!!.....
Thank you Mr Eldon.
