Editorial Reviews

Am I bovvered?
Meet the opinionated, manipulative NAN, the AGA SAGA WOMAN who simply can t cope with major disasters like a dropped egg cleaver, PAUL AND SAM the impossibly excited couple, BUNTY the Doncaster Spinners' oldest majorette, MARGARET who is frightened of her own shadow, BERNIE the Irish nurse, Ben and Karen the sleep starved NEW PARENTS, ELAINE FIGGIS the eternal romantic engaged to a convicted murderer on Death Row, LAUREN the teenager who never backs down and is never Bovvered and many others.

One of the BBC's most popular comedy stars, Catherine Tate's ascension to fame has been rapid but definitely well-deserved. Her sketch show features an eclectic collection of comedy creations; from Cockney Nan to the outspoken schoolgirl, Lauren, Tate's characters are all the more funny because they remind us of people in everyday life.

Catherine Tate made her mark with a number of supporting roles (Big Train, Barking, TvGoHome and others) and a starring role in Wild West before graduating to this intriguing self-named series. Part simple comedy, part biting satire, the first series served to underline Tate's versatility and dazzling aptitude for inhabiting the skin of a wide-ranging cast of characters of various ages. Best are Lauren Cooper, the modern-day teenage schoolgirl constantly troubled by current parlance (infecting the country with the catchphrase 'Am I bovvered?'), and Nan Taylor, the cockney granny who, while appearing to be pleasant, is actually a foul-mouthed racist.

Catherine Tate may be one of the newest talents to arrive from England. Her show is not yet broadcasted in America as it should have. Regardless, it is one of the funniest shows that I have seen in a long time and Catherine Tate is becoming one of my television favorites. She can transform herself from a young flygirl teenager to an annoying old woman. In between, she plays the woman who is frightened of her own shadow; the mall information lady who is useless, haven't we met one of them; the woman who can't get drunk enough to have sex with her boyfriend; the drunk real estate agent who makes crude remarks, and others. Anyway, the six episodes are really wonderful to watch over and over again. As somebody who got the first season of the show, I hope other American anglophiles will take a chance on Catherine Tate. She's one of Britain's funniest leading ladies.

Our friends in the UK have been going on and on about Catherine Tate for ages so we were delighted when the show debuted on BBC America just recently. We were not disappointed!

Catherine Tate is a very talented comedian who is convincing as the foul-mouthed Nan, the typical teenager who wants to know if she is being disrespected, and the posh "too much time on her hands" mother and house wife "Horrors - down to the last 4 litres of extra virgin olive oil". The funny thing is that I can identify with each of these characters as either family members or someone I know.

We are so glad that the boxed set is to be released in days. Looking forward to seeing the shows without all the American adverts! For those who aren't familar with the various British accents, you may have to "cheat" and use your closed captioning option. The humour won't be lost though.. Cheers!

Catherine Tate is a completely transformational performer. In this collection she brings us sad-sack Elaine Figgis, the line-dancing Brit baker whose e-courting of a death-row Texan is at once pathetic and hilarious; Nan Taylor, the outrageous Granny with a foul mouth and a keen wit; and the apotheosis of high school apathy, Lauren, who is perpetually "bovvered" by any kind of authority. Treat yourself, and check out this extraordinarily sharp, insightful and funny collection.

I got The Catherine Tate Show full collection series DVD set, but season 1 blew me away. It's hilarious! My favorites are AGA SAGA WOMAN and PAUL AND SAM. After having watched a whole series of Tate starring as quick-mouthed and sassy Donna Noble in Doctor Who, I had to check out why she was so funny. Her LAUREN skit is also iconic. I am not so much a fan of NAN for some reason, but there are some other quick one-off characters that round out the DVD for Series One. Tate's strong suit is getting into her different characters and completely becoming them. If you do like physical, dress-up costume, over-the-top comedy, then I suggest you try this DVD to get a flavor of the humor.

Catherine Tate has very little presence in the US but her humor certainly transcends any national boundaries. Not only is she funny but her acting abilities far surpass most other comics.
