Festive-wrapped compilation of Victor’s more controversial items from his original BBC Radio 1 series.

Award-winning controversial comedy surfaced on BBC Radio 1 in 1990 in the shape of Victor Lewis-Smith. The writer and producer took a comedy cudgel to the self-satisfied, mid-Atlantic style of the very network he was appearing on – with hoax phone calls, sketches, plus comic takedowns of high profile celebs. Featuring original jangly Radio 1 jingles made by JAM Creative Productions in Dallas, USA.

Winner of the British Comedy Awards 1990 for Best Radio Comedy.

After making 12 late night programmes for Radio 1, Victor took aim at TV in 1993 with BBC TWO's Inside Victor Lewis Smith, before sparking another stir on Channel 4 in 1998 with TV Offal.

Written by Victor Lewis Smith and Paul Sparks.

Producer: Victor Lewis Smith

First broadcast on BBC Radio 1 in 1992.
