Region 2 DVD (may not be viewable outside Europe).


Created by leading comedy producer Paul Jackson and based on the format of American show Saturday Night Live, Saturday Live has justifiably been described as ‘the comedy revolution televised’. Screened by Channel 4 between 1985 and 1987 and becoming Friday Night Live in 1988, the show presented the best and brightest new comedy talent, making huge stars of Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie, Ben Elton – who became the permanent host of Friday Night Live – and Harry Enfield, among many others.

Disc One

Before branching out into A Bit of Fry and Laurie, Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie brought their brand of sharply satirical, brilliantly eccentric humour to bear on a number of pressing topics on both Saturday Live and Friday Night Live. This compilation features such treasures as a mini-lecture on why ‘Size Doesn’t Count’, the pitfalls of ‘Buying a Hedge’, and why we should all ‘Carpe Diem’ before saying ‘Byeee’...

Disc Two

Harry Enfield unleashed a trio of comic characters on Saturday Live and Friday Night Live: Greek café-owner and Arsenal supporter Stavros, the hilariously monstrous Loadsamoney – the Cockney plasterer and millionaire-in-the-making who propelled Enfield to comedy superstar status – and, occasionally, his lesser-spotted and hardier Geordie adversary, Buggerallmoney. While Loadsamoney never missed a chance to fl ash his cash, Buggerallmoney settled for smoking tabs (sometimes three at a time, mind!). Just don’t mention Luton Town FC…

Disc Three

Ben Elton’s unstoppable monologues on a variety of topics delighted audiences for the classic comedy showcase throughout the later 1980s. Whatever the subject, ‘Motormouth’ Elton usually delivered a turbo-charged rant about it – be it the evils of Thatcherism, Yuppies, Clause 28 or nuclear power. This compilation features the sparkly-suited stand-up legend and Blackadder co-writer in fine form.
