Producers say: “This one-off half hour treat is packed full of scenarios and observations which spring from his unique imagination. Punctuated by techno versions of familiar ditties, Limmy’s Homemade Show features scenes and musings which often seem to be rooted in the mundane – until the funnyman adds his own particular twists.”
The programme promises “dabblings in the spirit world”, “a vision of the future”, and Limmy attempting an “academic explanation of how comedy works”.
The entire first series of Limmy’s Show! is packed alongside the pilot episode, audio and video commentaries, and original home-made versions of some sketches.
First released: Monday 15th November 2010
A unique blend of comic characters, sketches, observation, animation, music and dancing. Starring Brian Limond AKA Limmy who writes, directs, performs and guides the viewer throughout the show. His character creations include Falconhoof the fearless TV adventure call phone-in host, Dee Dee – a zoned-out waster and occasional intergalactic space traveller and a vignette from a shirtless figure who tells the world, “she turned the weans against me”. Limmy’s Show! was hailed by the Guardian as “simply the best British comedy made this year” and won the Scottish BAFTA for Best Entertainment Programme in 2011.
