COUNCIL COMEDY FOR FUNNYMEN

Comic duo Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer (pictured) are to bring local government to the small screen in their own brash fashion.

The pair are writing a sitcom based on two of the most popular characters from The Smell of Reeves and Mortimer series - councillors Cox and Evans.

It is unlikely that Mr Reeves and Mr Mortimer will go out of their way to enhance the reputation of local government. Previous television outings for councillors Cox and Evans have seen the pair characterised as fat, northern and corrupt, keen on hare-brained schemes and prone to beating each other up.
