The Fast Show is back in November! Brilliant!

Anyone else a fan of this awesome sketch show from the 90s? So cool that even Johnny Depp did a guest appearance. This has now given me extra justification for getting the box set now.

The news was broken by co-creator Charlie Higson on Twitter a few hours ago.

Only dissapointing thing is that Mark Williams is not involved. :( Everyone else is, though. :)

Good news. I liked the fast show. Very funny and original. I still giggle at the thought of the 'I am mainly wearing...' sketch! :lol:

We still have to quote so much from this show when it comes up in normal conversation... like when someone says 'That's weird'..we have to go 'hold the bells' :D :lol:

I did the "Scorchio" thing when I was watching the Tucson weather on the Tv over there. Then I had to try and explain to Sharlene what I was on about. :lol:

I even dreamt about the Fast Show last night after reading this :) Suit you sir!

My favourite sketch (SPOILERS!) is a one-off in the first series. Guy gets into bed to read, when his lightbulb gives out. So he gets out in the dark to replace it and when he screws it in, he's surrounded by bears.
