Pegged out

Obscure sketch show released

An obscure comedy sketch show that helped launch the careers of Simon Pegg, Sanjeev Bhaskar and Amanda Holden is to be released on DVD.

We Know Where You Live was one of Channel Five’s few forays into comedy, and aired soon after its launch in 2005. However it attracted small ratings, and has largely been forgotten despite the future success of its stars.

The show was made on a tight budget, and the Radio Times Guide To TV Comedy says: ‘The cast acquitted themselves well but the uneven quality of the writing and overriding cheap look of the show worked against them.’

The 12-part show also starred Smack The Pony’s Fiona Allen and fellow comic actress Ella Kenion

Five aired a seven-part ‘best of…’ series subtitled Remix in 2000, and it is this which is released on DVD on Monday, priced £15.99.
