Vic & Bob's Afternoon Delights

Published July 2011

Vic and Bob's Afternoon Delights. Image shows from L to R: Vic Reeves, Bob Mortimer. Image credit: Foster's.Vic & Bob's Afternoon Delights was an online sketch show sponsored by Foster's lager. Madcap duo Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer perform in a series of 20 original sketches. Each sketch focuses on a different set of characters - there's an infamous plastic surgeon, ghost hunters, and more...

Being mainly improvised, Vic & Bob's Afternoon Delights a mixed bag of comedy content, but do watch out for the Dr Shakamo and Glassblowers sketches.
