Great Scenes

Andy and Lou at the Swimming Pool

This sketch from the first episode in series one was voted by Channel 4 viewers in 2005 the greatest comedy sketch ever - even beating the "Dead Parrot" sketch from Monty Python's Flying Circus!

The sketch was taken in a single take, because when Lou (Walliams) says "Water", at the exact moment Andy (Lucas) lands in the water. It was kept in because of the amazing coincidence.
