News: Vic & Bob's Big Night Out Comes Back To TV

Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer's Big Night Out is to return for a one-off half-hour special.

The show originally aired on Channel 4. This time it will go out on BBC2. It was originally called Vic Reeves’ Big Night Out and will now be called Vic & Bob’s Big Night Out.

There will be sketches shot on location as well as songs, skits and stunts performed in front of a studio audience. It will feature a mix of new characters and old favourites.There will be some surprise cameo appearances and a very well-known television show will get the Vic & Bob makeover treatment. This may – or may not – explain why pictures of the duo in a strange variety of wigs have been appearing on social media recently.

The duo added: "This is the show we wanted to perform back in the Eighties. Now the time is right. We will be increasing our respective heights in order to perform the intricate and challenging moments.”

Shane Allen, Controller Comedy Commissioning, says: “In this special, Vic and Bob go back to their live stage show roots to mark three decades as the most pioneering, surreal and unique pairing in British comedy. With a mix of old and new characters, recorded in an intimate setting they give a modern spin on that rich tradition of English eccentricity that stretches back to the music hall, through Spike Milligan and The Pythons, in creating characters that delight or baffle depending on who you are.”

Vic & Bob’s Big Night Out will be directed by Mat Whitecross, who made the recent Oasis documentary, Supersonic.
