Any fast show fans on here, if so can you help me?
My girlfriend has never seen it and I'm addicted to it but cannot find a photo of the character who wore a deer stalker and always bought stuff his wife didn't want. His catchphrase was "even better than that"!!
Why don't they show this on UK gold.........its the dogs b#@*%$s!!!!

It was the fast show, the man always came back from the shops with nothing like what he went for....he always brought back something "even better than that!"

Yeah, I definitely remember the character. I just pictured Harry Enfield's face. Who played the character?

IIRC it was Mark Williams who played the character.

Now I can put the face and the character together. Cheers Joe! I can go to sleep now.

And so was "This season I will mostly be wearing nipple clamps". Classic.

"Where am I? What year is it? Who's the President!" was my favourite Smile

Some people say that British comedy is inferior to American comedy. Let's see, "The Fast Show" or "Friends"? Hmm.....

fast show
father ted
the office
fawlty towers
phoenix nights..... etc

the yanks may have teams of writers on each show giving them a higher gag rate, but you've got to stick with good old blighty for quality like the above.

I've got abc1 on freeview, and it's pretty darn lame!
