About The Fast Show: Just a Load of Blooming Catchphrases

A bona fide benchmark in comedy, The Fast Show rebooted the sketch show format in 1990s with short, punchy skits, a frenetic pace and an emphasis on irresistible running gags and, of course, catchphrases.

This one-off special will be mostly joining Paul Whitehouse, Charlie Higson, Simon Day, Mark Williams, John Thomson and Arabella Weir as they lift the lid on how The Fast Show happened and why it became such a cult classic.

There are classic clips galore from across the series as well as touching memories of much missed cast member, Caroline Aherne.

Not only that, some of the series most popular characters reveal what they've been doing over the years in brand new, specially written pieces.

We discover Swiss Toni's seduction secrets, the ups and downs of Billy Bleach's tumultuous love life and hear yet more of Rowley Birkin QC's wild and fantastical adventures, all of which happened of course when he was very, very drunk.
