Eranu!

Just a timely reminder from TVO that Matt Berry is a guest on long-running panel show Shooting Stars tonight.

The madcap quiz, hosted by Vic Reeves & Bob Mortimer since 1993 (!) returned for it’s eighth series earlier this month, and co-stars Dan Skinner as Angelos Epithemou. Skinner was previously a member of Dutch Elm Conservatoire – a surreal sketch troop which also featured TVO regulars Stephen Evans and Rufus Jones.  You can see a selection of recent out-takes from Skinner below.

The show occasionally has other connections to Onion Land.  Noel Fielding was a guest when the show returned after a long absence back in 2009, whilst last week’s episode featured a cameo from non other than Tony Way, whose connection to Vic & Bob goes way back to their late 90s sketch show Bang, Bang, It’s Reeves & Mortimer.

Those outside the UK who are unfamiliar with the duo may recognise them both from the hour long Boosh documentary A Journey Through Time And Space, to be found inside the Mighty Boosh special edition boxset, and if you are unaware of their repertoire, we strongly suggest a trip to YouTube, followed by a dvd retailer very very quickly!  Allow us to start your adventure with a classic slice of Reeves & Mortimer madness from their seminal 1995 series The Smell of Reeves & Mortimer.

Tonight’s episode of Shooting Stars was previewed on the site last week, and will be available on iPlayer for 7 days after transmission.  It airs on BBC Two at 10pm.
