Radio 4: The Programmes

Saturday Night Fry

“HIT it, bitch!”. Superb verge-of-megastardom knockabout from Stephen Fry with, predictably, Hugh Laurie and Emma Thompson in tow, doing silly things to no end of Radio 4 cliches and speaking in nonsense language ‘Strom’ while indulging in elaborate extended parodies of Fat Man On A Bicycle and costume dramas, deconstructing deconstructionist jokes about changing pages of the script, and trying and failing to emulate Jim’ll Fix It in Stephen Will Do His Level Best To Comply With Your Wishes. Also it was on Saturday nights.

    Funniest episode of this (apart from Barry Cryer finding an innuendo in everything you say) was the Stephen Will Do His Level Best To Comply With Your Wishes where the listener wanted to go to the afterlife, and they made a big deal of hauling a piano with them which Stephen said would come in handy later, except they fell in the River Styx and forgot everything, including what they needed the piano for.
