Pilot - Comedy Showcase: Kevin Bishop

Pilot episode of the sketch show. Characters include: the overly clinical R 'n' B singer Dr Usher whose raunchy yet medically accurate songs are hardly conducive to romance, Bruce Parry who takes on more than he can chew when he meets some over-friendly tribesmen on his latest trip to the jungle and the middle-class Hulk who is far too polite to express his internal rage.
