The Kenny Everett Video Show
It’s All Done in the Best Possible Taste…
Erupting onto Television during the summer of ’78, The Kenny Everett Video Show was an instant ratings grabber – propelling the subversive, impish DJ to the superstardom he had always deserved.
Kenny’s anarchic mix of manic sketches, musical guests and dance routines - courtesy of booty-shakers Hot Gossip - created must-see television, his creative genius running riot as he unleashed a line-up of much-loved, much-mimicked characters including gobby rocker Sid Snot, Gallic sophisticate Marcel Wave and the improbably-handed evangelist Brother Lee Love!
The series showcased concert performances from some of the biggest music stars with appearances from David Bowie, Bonnie Tyler, The Boomtown Rats, Suzi Quatro, Thin Lizzy, David Essex, The Police and many more.
Now, for the first time ever, Network Distributing are releasing all 35 episodes (including three New Year specials) that Kenny, alongside comedy writers Barry Cryer and Ray Cameron, crafted at Thames Television between 1978 – 1981, for many episodes this will be their DVD debut!
Kenny had made his start in 1964 at the legendary pirate station Radio London before moving on (being fired!) to the fledging BBC Radio 1 and then commercial station Capital Radio (after another firing!). He honed his mix of comedy, music and controversy throughout the 60s and 70s which culminated in his own TV show that would be the perfect vehicle for his characters and sketches.
After coming out in the mid 1980s, Kenny sadly passed away from AIDS related illnesses in 1995 at the age of 50. The comic genius left a prolific legacy in British Entertainment and his influence can be seen across a myriad of entertainers today.
The eagerly awaited The Kenny Everett Video Show will be released on 19th November.
