Often partnered with fellow British comic Bob Mortimer, Vic Reeves is one of England's most popular comedic actors, known for his absurd deadpan delivery and wit. Reeves, teamed with Mortimer, garnered attention with his first show, "Vic Reeves Big Night Out" in 1990. Originally structured as a stage show, the series was a surreal subversion of the variety show format featuring skits and live music courtesy of Reeves and lasted two seasons. Reeves and Mortimer followed their breakthrough show with two more similar programs, "The Smell of Reeves and Mortimer," which premiered in 1993 and ran for two seasons; and "Bang, Bang, It's Reeves and Mortimer," debuting in 1999 and running for one season. Reeves is also the host and creator of the long-running panel game show/comedy, "Shooting Stars," premiering in 1993. Unlike a lot of comedians, Reeves has managed to branch out into other areas with relative success. He has released music and had a single reach number one on the UK charts, hosted non-comedic television shows such as the multi-part historical Discovery Channel show "Rogues Gallery," a program investigating the various Jack the Ripper suspects, and he has acted in the supernatural series "Randall & Hopkirk (Deceased)," also starring Mortimer.
