The Fast Show / Shooting Stars Live! Hammersmith Apollo, London, 1998

I saw The Fast Show Live in London in 1998 which featured all of the original cast of the highly successful sketch series (including co-creators Higson and Paul Whitehouse plus John Thomson, Simon Day, Mark Williams and Arabella Weir with a noticeable absent oof Caroline Ahern). 

The show was a series of very quick sketches made up of practically all of their multitude characters and catchphrases.  Mercilessly, up until this point, I had never watched the TV series and was amazed and extremely amused as to what I had missed including watching Higson’s great character Colin Hunt – an annoying office worker who tells jokes all day – of which I found an uncanny resemblance!
