The cast of House of Fools


New pictures and a trailer have been released for Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer's new BBC Two sitcom House of Fools.

The Shooting Stars duo have turned their hands to a traditional studio audience comedy. However, the show still features their unique, surreal sense of humour.

What's up with Bob's hair?


The set-up is that Bob is continually getting frustrated in his home because of a continual line of uninvited lodgers, visitors and guests.

Vic, Beef (Matt Berry), Bosh (Dan Skinner) and Julie (Morgana Robinson) are among the guests who cause havoc.

The show has brought the duo's anarchic japes to the traditional British sitcom.

Speaking about the series, Reeves said: "The show is about Bob's house and his suffering of a variety of idiotic characters. I play Vic Reeves, who is one of the idiots. It's not me, but he looks a lot like me and sounds like me too."

Mortimer said: "We wanted to take on the challenge of a studio sitcom, which is one of the few comedy genres we have not attempted. A house full of idiots seemed the easiest setting. We can write idiots quite well.

"Performing in front of an audience gives you an extra 10% energy and the chance to react to the instant feedback. Having an audience in the studio makes you perform rather than just act."
