Heeere's Johnny

Vegas releases his first DVD

Johnny Vegas is to release his first DVD and video on November 17.

Who's ready for Ice Cream? sees the comic struggle to rediscover his edge after finding fame and success.

The blurb reads: "His manager has one week to get Vegas back in shape. Johnny must be dragged out of his 'happy place' and back into the depths of emotional anguish and self loathing. Johnny must give the fans and the sponsors, what they want - a loser."

Directed by Stewart Lee, the video was shot in Edinburgh and Glasgow this summer, with Vegas deliberately dying on stage and pushing the audience's patience in order to get the right footage.

DVD extras include Outtakes, a spoof documentary called Behind The Pain and Tough Crowd, a stand-up show with an audience determined not to laugh.

The DVD is piced £19.99, but click here to pre-order and save £5 at Amazon.co.uk
