Stew Series One (2004)
A pacey character driven sketch show with a wide variety of comedy from classic slapstick to surreal to black humour.
“No longer does comedy shuffle onto RTE like a clown with a malfunctioning dickie-bow. Stew is confident, well made and well acted.”
“Stew is that rarest of beasts, a very funny Irish comedy show.”
“Ineffably Irish, Stew is up there with anything the BBC is doing.”
“A deliciously deranged slice of surrealism from some of the silliest brains in Ireland…there are some sublime flashes of genius in Stew.”
“Played with an impressively straight face, Stew offers a substantial repast for starving Irish comedy fans. By crediting its audience with working brains, it carves out the freedom to play for bigger and better laughs.”
