Free Runners

Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer’s web series Afternoon Delights sponsored by Fosters Lager is essential viewing.

It is  a return to the inspired  stupidity of their Big Night Out series on Channel 4 from 20 years ago.

There’s a new three-minute episode every weekday in July so, as I write, there are five online at the moment.

Episode one features The Free Runners boasting of their confrontation of the ‘extreme urban environment’: “We’ll jump off anything and then land safely”

My favourite so far is the second – a piece of investigative journalism exposing a Japanese doctor practising without a qualification.

I particularly like it when they crack each other up and try to keep a straight face.
