Sky is launching a series of knockabout physical comedies featuring Vic Reeves, Kim Cattrall, Frank Skinner, Kevin Eldon and Johnny Vegas. The four 30-minute films, which will air on Sky Arts this autumn, also feature Edinburgh Comedy Award winners John Kearns and Dr Brown, new Barry Award winner Sam Simmons, Seann Walsh and plenty of other familiar faces.
