Stewart Lee and Richard Herring

Fist of Fun - Series 1


It feels like it's all been building up to this - as you know, we've spent the last few years filming the best comedians that are currently working. But did you know that we've been squirrelling the money away, so that we can present this - a four disc set of Fist of Fun series 1.

We've got the TV series of course, but we've also got you a lot more.

There's commentaries on all the episodes from Rich and Stew. The pair of them were reunited in Rich's spare room one glorious Monday afternoon.

We've also got commentaries on some of the other episodes from Kevin Eldon and Ben Moor.

And - we've managed to find the disappointing 60 minute cash-in live show that Rich and Stew released on VHS video back in the day.

Oh, and an unbroadcast pilot episode and a short film of Rich and Stew reminiscing with a box of memorabilia from Rich's attic.

But that's not all. We've done something that no one else has done before. We've got the studio rushes from some of the episodes. That's everything that was recorded on the night. So there's fluffed lines, warm up men, deleted sketches and more. Most DVD makers would have edited this down - but we enjoyed watching them all the way though, so we thought you would too. There's a lengthy essay printed on the box which will guide you though them.

We have also included a mammoth set of files. There's scanned in scripts - both filmed and unfilmed, an mp3 bootleg of a live show recorded in Treforest, press releases, fan club information, images of props - and there's some word documents that Rich found on his computer. It's quite extraordinary - if we do say so ourselves.

And of course there are hidden extras sprinkled around the discs. As usual, the clues to their location are printed on the disc faces.

Oh, and the packaging looks like a little hard back book. So it's lovely before you even put it in your dvd player.
