Saturday Live - The Best Of Series Two

Created by leading comedy producer Paul Jackson (The Young Ones) and based on the format of American show Saturday Night Live, Saturday Live was broadcast on Channel 4 between 1985 and 1987 and brought the live alternative comedy circuit to a UK TV audience.

Some of comedy's most iconic characters made their name on and owe their success to the show, including Harry Enfield's Stavros. Saturday Live also made a huge star of Ben Elton as a performer - previously known for his writing, he started out as a guest host and then went on to become the permanent presenter.

So join Ben Elton, Harry Enfield, Stephen Fry, Hugh Laurie, Julian Clary, Craig Charles, Chris Barrie, Lenny Henry, Rowan Atkinson and the puppets of Spitting Image for a riotous trip down alternative comedy memory lane in this special DVD release which contains all the best moments from the second series.
