Kevin Eldon might not be a big name, but if you scan the credits to comedy shows from the last 15 years ago, his name will crop quite often. His a very clever, well observed comedy and the surrealistic capabilities of radio are perfect for his razor sharp wit and skill. Anybody who is thinking about buying this, and series 1 and 2, I would say DO IT!!!
Kevin Eldon does not entertain - he beguiles, bewilders, bludgeons and beautifully explores the full potential for; Auditory - Comedic - Exposition - quite simply the guy is ACE.
I sat on the Chuo line, in Tokyo, intending to travel three stops and ended up staying on for over an hour, then an hour back to my original destination ! ...just to stay tuned into the show. Crying with laughter and shaking with joy. Fellow early morning Sunday passengers looked on with concern, the naturally reserved Japanese unable to bring themselves to engage with the bizarrely guffawing gaijin.
The concept, technical precision and the sheer genius comedy of series 1 and 2 has once again moved up a step.
Why Kevin Eldon is not celebrated for the comedic genius he is ... is simply beyond me.
Echoes of the finer moments of Spike Milligan, Tony Hancock, Marty Feldman, Barry Took, Eddie Braben, Kenny Everett, Stuart Lee, Milton Jones, Frankie Boyle - but all jiggled together in a delicious comedy stew, simmered to perfection in the spirit of Dirk Maggs - With a supporting cast of actors who are as perfect a combination as you can get... and the guy can sing as well !!
Please provide more opportunities for Mr Eldon to share his genius.
Thank you Mr Eldon.
