If you're a fan of the Harry Potter movies, you may be interested to know that Mark Williams (who plays Arthur Weasley) is one of the main "stars" of The Fast Show, featuring in some of the best sketches such as the "Suit You Sir!" guys, and "Jesse's Fashion Tips", etc...

That was classic
"Look... just make me a f**king suit!" But he likes going "Ooh!" with the others
That really needs to come out on DVD, darn it... my b/f has series' 1, 2 and 3, but we need the next one... we had to get 2 and 3 from the UK though, because only 1 has been released here, unfortunately...
Heh, I just watched the Fast Show Farewell Tour, and there was a fan dressed up as Swiss Toni in the front row. (And two girls dressed as the tailors, on bloke as Rowly Birkin, and a guy dressed as Ted.)
John Thompson was absent, but Rhys Thomas had bigger roles than in the show. He played Competitive Dad's grown up son
As much as I love the Fast Show, I think I'm glad they laid it to rest, I don't think they had anything new to say - though if I had a chance to see them doing it live, I'd jump at it! ;D
I think the DVD of the last Fast Show is pretty much it. It's been shown on UKTV and on SBS, and all they showed (to my knowledge) was the same sketches as on the DVD. The DVD had a bit more, actually - cos I don't think the TV eps had the big farewell from all the characters.
There's a fun behind the scenes doco on the Farewell Tour DVD ;D Filmed in Blackpool!
