I got Chewin' The Fat on DVD. Bought it recently from a CEX shop. Try there.

It's a great sketch show but that woman with the big nostrils is slighty scary. Anyone seen Happy Hollidays? That was good, with Ford and Borrby in it.

I was ok. No Still Game.

Series 1 of Chewin' The Fat is currently on Netflix in the UK, along with an added series of Still Game. Can't quite believe I only 'discovered' these comedy gems a few months ago. Eminently watchable and often laugh out loud hilarious. (My better half loves both shows too.)

The early Jack and Victor sketches in Chewin' the Fat before they transferred to Still Game were really good. I recall one in particular where Jack has bought a taser to zap the local neds with.

A laugh was always guaranteed with Karen Dunbar's main character of the sex-obsessed Betty as well.

Never forget the truly terrifying "BIG MAN". Be afraid, be very afraid...........

This is one of the funniest sketch shows in the history of British comedy.

Original ideas, great performances and excellent dialogue: it's a shame it isn't much better known than it is.

Top class stuff!
