A Bit of Fry and Laurie Season 1



Summary: A Bit of Fry and Laurie was an English sketch-based comedy. It starred Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie, who also doubled as the show's writers. The show aired in 4 separate series' on BBC 2 between 1989 and 1995. This show came about due to the success of a special aired at Christmas in 1986. A Bit of Fry and Laurie received excellent reviews for it's innovative approach to comedy.

Review: Recognize that face? Yeah, it's Hugh Laurie, the same actor who does "House". This is his earlier work with best pal Fry. All the episodes have wonderful little gems of humour, but I still think I love the first episode best out of the first season. Especially the precursor and the sketch called "Bitchmother, Come Light My Bottom". It made no sense. And it was good.

For the sake of the argument, courtesy of the "A BIT OF FRY AND LAURIE" Scripts Archive, here are scripts to my favourite sketches of season 1:


"CENSORED (BITCHMOTHER COME LIGHT MY BOTTOM)"
"PRIZE POEM"
"JUDGE NOT"
"OPEN UNIVERSITY"
"COCOA"
"PARENT POWER"
"VIOLENCE"
