A Bit of Fry and Laurie Episode #1.5 (1987–1995) Online

As a service to the public, Fry and Laurie provide two TV critics to deride the show. A lesbian-obsessed lawyer, a miserable English teacher, and a young couple who baptize their infant for business reasons provide plenty of fodder for the critics' self-absorbed rambling. As an added bonus, Laurie walks us through his very favorite sketch, and, with Fry's help, celebrates Swiss week.

User reviews



"A Bit of Fry and Laurie" sets the gold standard for comedy sketch shows. Stephen and Hugh are best friends who have appeared together in many productions. They write and act all the sketches. In the first two seasons, they are occasionally aided by one or two other actors. Sometimes, one of them cross-dresses to create new characters. However, the vast majority of sketches consist simply of two Englishmen experimenting with different ideas. But Stephen & Hugh are so ingenious and work so well together that each sketch feels fresh and exciting.

The sketches are: Lavatories/Estate Agents; Bored Critics; Lesbotic Tendencies; Bored Critics (again); Cool Teacher; I Know!; Hugh's Favorite Sketch; Bored Critics (now lying on the floor and eating ice cream); The Burt; Spiritual Portfolio; Switzerland.

Bravo to Deborah Norton, the delightfully understated actress who appears throughout the first season. Her conservative, auntie-like appearance and posh accent disguise a wicked sense of humor. She particularly shines in this episode.
