Vic and Bob have announced their first tour since 1995! The tour, ’25 Years of Reeves and Mortimer: The Poignant Moments’ will be a celebration of the first 25 years of their professional collaboration from Vic Reeves Big Night Out (Channel 4 1990) through Smell of Reeves & Mortimer (BBC Two 1993/4), Bang, Bang It’s Reeves & Mortimer (BBC Two 1999) and Shooting Stars (BBC Two 1999-2011). BBC Two are currently transmitting the second series of their sitcom House Of Fools.
Previous live shows include Brown 1591 (1991), Puce 1694 (1994) and Weathercock 1495 (1995). The tour which starts on 11th November will be a nostalgic moment in the annals of comedy history and a hotly anticipated ticket for fans hoping to catch a glimpse of some of their most popular characters, Man With the Stick, The Stotts, Mulligan and O’Hare, amongst others.
As always with Vic and Bob there will be some up-lifting moments, some musical moments, maybe some magic, several dancing styles, some show of physical strength but always some poignant moments.
Vic Reeves said: “Destiny has led us to this point in time. Now, finally the diversion of Reeves & Mortimer can be revealed in full extent through a cornucopia of preposterous doggerel etc.”
Bob Mortimer added: “Playing in front of a living audience is where it all began for us. Some people feel most alive when they are e.g. on fire or in Turkey, but for us the stage is where we thrive. I will ensure that Vic arrives at all dates smartly dressed and unarmed. I promise not to mention football, JLS or apricots during the performances. Should you choose to attend, be warned, I will be not be wearing a toupé.”
