When Vic Reeves was first presented to the TV public, he called himself ‘Britain’s Best Light Entertainer’. He could sing, dance, be funny, act and even draw! That was at the start of 1990 with the launch of Vic Reeves’ Big Night Out and since then he has grown into one of the most treasured entertainers of the last 25 years.
Perhaps best known for his double act alongside comedy writer and performer Bob Mortimer, the two created cult panel show Shooting Stars in the mid-90s. Running for an impressive eight series, the show allowed for riotous onscreen antics featuring different celebrity guests each week.
Vic’s recent TV credits include writing and starring alongside Mortimer in the BBC2 sitcom House of Fools, which aired for two series. He recently played Geoffrey in the BBC rendition Inspector George Gently and was a contestant on The Great British Bake Off for Comic Relief, narrowly out to fellow comedy legend Victoria Wood. Other notable credits include hosting two successful series of BBC1s Brainiac, presenting Racing Legends, narrating on Dave’s comedy podcast Crackanory and presenting Britain’s Secret Treasures for ITV. Vic starred alongside Victoria Wood in BBC 2’s feature-length film Eric and Ernie.
Vic and Bob are award winners in their own right, having scooped Writers Guild of Great Britain Award in 2012 and the Loaded LAFTAS Award in 2011 for their contribution to British comedy over the last 30 years. In November 2015 the duo mark their outstanding impact on our comedy history with a 3 month UK Tour, ending in February 2016.
