It succeeded The All Star Comedy Show, which was written by Reeves and Mortimer, and produced by Coogan.

Sketches of the show included the moronic, yet fearless 'Croc Botherer' (played by Mortimer), Roy the eerie, lonely toy-shopkeeper (played by Coogan), Alistair the hopeless estate agent, who replies to every question with "I don't know", the swearing chef, and the 'Geordie Astronauts' (played by Reeves, Mortimer and Mark Benton).

A DVD of the series was released on 4 July 2005, which includes the unaired episode.
