The library also sent along Little Britain Live and I watched it over the weekend. I would have blogged about it sooner but Typepad was having server issues the last week or so. It seems to have settled down now but who can tell with software, it's such crap sometimes. Happily I found Little Britain Live more entertaining than the Little Britain USA series. As you might guess LBL is a live show. The dvd has a complete recording of one of the 242 live shows in the tour. They played the UK from October 2005 to December 2006 and Australia from January–March 2007. The dvd show was recorded in the Blackpool Opera House in December 2005. The stage show has a nicely designed stage with tracks. Stage hands pull set pieces and props back and forth. The back of the stage is flat panels which have images projected from digital projectors. They even have opening doors with video images projected on them.
Matt and David play a bunch of their characters and they have Paul Putner and Samantha Power in supporting roles. Anthony Head and Ruth Jones appeared in some shows and Tom Baker recorded all the narration. It was an entertaining show to watch and the video production looks pretty good. I liked some of the jokes and others I didn't care for as much. You can check it out in the link above.
