The Kenny Everett Television Show The Kenny Everett Television Show was actually a defection from ITV, where for three years it had been The Kenny Everett Video show.

Both were glossy, fast-edited, slickly shambolic comedy sketch shows featuring alarming characters like Marcel Wave, Sidney Snot, and Cupid Stunt.

Written by Everett along with Barry Cryer and Ray Cameron "all in the best possible taste", each show featured bizarre sketches (shopping with a tank), and musical interludes from the racy dance group Hot Gossip.

Everett had formed his unique style while working as a DJ, creating almost impossibly complicated sound jokes and jingles - a format that made him a huge, but reliably controversial hit. Frequently fired from the radio, Everett found acclaim on TV.
