irritatingly funnyBy Gerry from Glasgow, Scotland , 23 Jan 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]Daring and uncomfortable this is often hilarious. At other times it can be a bit irritating and the theme is (obviously) repetitive. Some moments are priceless, however. A great pain-in the-ass character.

Brilliantlly humourousBy a customer , 14 Aug 2011
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideTruley amazing classic comedy for enyone who like good humour. Paul Kaye takes the piss out of over 60 comedians, artists, movie stars, commen people, ANYONE! The style and acting of his characters such as Mike strutter, Dennis Venece and Tony, the hating competetor of Dennis. It also has one of the greatest ending of any t.v star known as Pennis R.I.P. Worth the money. It will leave you with a good feeling.
Simply AmazingBy BrummyBoy (4 reviews) from Birmingham , 26 Jan 2010I remember watching these on T.V and they are as funny now as they were back then...long live Dennis Pennis ( Paul Kaye )
we want Dennis Back!
Loved it!By a customer from Chester , 24 Mar 2009Almost as good as I remembered it from the 90s. I lost a few jokes at the expense of some of the old politicians at the time as I didn't recognise some of them (as I'm 24, politics didn't interest me too much when I was 8) but they were still relevant to the politicians we see today. If you like nice tasteful comedy this isn't for you. I howled with laughter for most of the other characters too, especially Mike Strutter however, my boyfriend who has only recently discovered Dennis didn't like any of the other sketches but liked Dennis so I guess it's hard to judge if you'd like it or not. If you love punk rock, misbehaving and jokes at other people's expense and sometimes 'way out there' anarchic comedy you'll love it (or not?). Lot's of angry moments, violent reference and cringe worthy moments and Dennis makes you feel so tense, how did he not get beaten to death by some of the celebrity's handlers I'll never know! There are 3 'episodes' on the disc and the first episode is gold (imho)! The 2nd episode has a few more characters on it which is when my boyfriend started to lose interest and the 3rd episode had very little of Dennis in and lot's of other characters although still about Dennis. I thought it was an ok episode but didn't love it and unfortunately my boyfriend hated it by now... Then again what does he know, he hates alternative comedy... ;D
A must for Pennis fansBy Spiceymike (26 reviews) from Oxford , 14 Jan 2009I never actually realised this was a collection of specials put together on one disc. This release includes 'Very Important Pennis', 'Anyone For Pennis?' and 'RIP - Too Rude To Live'. The latter one being the one I wanted to see after reading about it and finding out that it was the first appearance of the Mike Strutter character and how Pennis gets killed off. I didn't even realise Lucas & Walliams make an appearance in this too along with a young looking Matthew Wright.
I also liked the fact that there was some more recent material added to this DVD such as Paul Kaye as himself talking about his dislike for Leicester Square and a reminisce of him doing Pennis when he was there last time. There's also another interview with Matt Lucas' character 'The Quill' doing some type of follow-up after the RIP special. This also seems recent and it's good to know that a lot of content was put in to this.
Quick witted but overkill..By a customer from Sudbury , 10 Dec 2008Pennis' quick witted anti celeb quips bring on a smile/cringe, the only problem with his comedy is the fact it seems to work very well in 5 minute bursts, but to sit through a whole DVD feature was tedious. One for the die hard Pennis fans only..
