Lord Vic 'Potato' Reeves is an English comedian who smells of cucumber and likes to stare at foxes in Autumn. Since the BBC axed Shooting suns, he has teamed up with Betty Mortimer for a new show: Unlucky minging losers.

edit Shooting Blanks
He is best known for his comedy game-show Shooting suns, co-hosted by his brother and part-time sexual slave Bob Mortimer (aka 'Blow-job Bob'). The show got its name because of Vic's unfortunate condition whereby his penis is rendered completely useless and barely visible (Tini-Peni syndrome). So Vic has to instead spend the show rubbing his thighs vigourously over the nearest female (or male) contestant and the winner is the one who brings him to climax first (usually Phill Jupitus).
Other poor fuckers who were forced to endure this perverted spectacle included 50's throwback Mark Lamarr, Will 'plays with him' Self, Johnny 'Belly the size of Las' Vegas and Ulrika-ka-ka-ka-ka-ka Johnsson. After blowing his load, Vic then insisted on telling a painfully piss-poor joke which would inevitably always be followed by complete silence, a howling wind, and a tumbleweed blowing across the set.
edit Small Night In
Another dismal attempt at entertainment was the pathetic excuse for a show called Vic Reeves' Big Night In, basically a fly-on-the-wall documentary which gave the viewers the delightful treats of Vic tucking into a pizza or Pot Noodle, watching a movie (usually Brokeback Mountain) and then wanking himself to sleep. Obviously it was crap and no-one watched it (apart from everyone in Scotland)
edit Vic & Bob
After the dismal performance of Big Night In, Reeves and his partner and sex slave Bob Mortimer were given their own comedy sketch series. This was the usual disappointment and the show was eventually axed by the BBC, but led to another shit programme about them - see below.
edit Vic & Bob get Cataracts
Reeves and Mortimer create cataracts, resulting in the viewers seeing what looks like Reece Shearsmith get attacked with a top-third of a dalek. Chris Palmer's catch phrase is very similar to Andy Pipkin's in Little Britain - "I know!". This TV Series contains: Turkey in a box being shot, ripped George Clooney poster, Penis in a safe, A satsuma on the side of a window, flash backs to a weird childhood, and many more...
To vent his anger for being axed by the BBC Reeves spent two years blowing up microwaves and caravans. The series was based around the show with the same name that had starred Top Gear presenter Richard Hammond. The series drew in many viewers who enjoyed seeing Reeves blowing the shit out of things, as well as when he put on a silly voice when doing so.
There is only so far you can take this formula however and eventually it became tiresome and people hated the voice that he kept putting on. As a result SkyOne were thinking of cutting the show completly but discovered it had well over two viewers and decised to keep the show but cut them down to bit size chunks as so not to waste programming time. Reeves was not happy about this and he left the show to try out other things.
The shows bite size chuncks are usually shown during the advertisments on SkyOne when they are showing a popular show like "24", "Lost" or "Ross Kemp On A Washing Machine" as a way to drum up support for the show so that one day it may return, although Bob Mortimer has started a petition to make sure the series never returns. This petition has well over 6,000,000,000 signatures already.
edit Vic Reeves Quiz Night
Due to the lukewarm reception from Reeves appearance on Brainiac, ITV1 gave Reeves a chance and got him to present a new late night show called "Vic Reeves Quiz Night" where Reeves would be in a different pub everyweek and host that pubs quiz night. Reeves was paid £600 per episode and had to use the money he was paid for the winnings of the quiz. Although he had to give the money away Reeves commented that he was just happy to be back on TV.
In early 2009; Reeves announced that he was in the running to replace Lee Evans in the lead role for the BBC TV show CSI: Swansea. He along with some other people were also connected to the role, these included: Mr Bean, Richard Hammond, Jeremy Clarkson, James May, Gordon Brown and apprently Roger Moore.
The producers favourite was said to be James May, the Top Gear presenter, however after Robert Croft - the shows new head writer and producer from the fourth series onwards - came home form getting slashed one night he saw Reeves on "Vic Reeves Quiz Night" on ITV and was so pleased with his performance on that show that Croft cast Reeves in the lead role called Chris Palmer.
He will take over from Evans in series five in the episode "In Which We Meet Chris Palmer". When that bloke on GMTV asked Croft why they called the episode that he said "It was the best I could come up with at the time". Reeves casting made other runner James May very angry and Reeves received many death threats from the Top Gear presenter as a result. May has now gone on to star and create a new show for BBC One called Britannia Mafia.
Reeves has stated that when he was at college he appeared in a number of movies that never really did that well. These movies can be seen late night on Channel 4.
It has been recorded on Mr Reeves' IMDB entry that he was the Executive Producer of Les Quatre Cents Coups; however whenever questioned in relation to his involvement denies this emphatically stating that "it's all a fucking fit-up".
edit Some random questions from Shooting Blanks
Every now and then to keep the show remotely interesting, Vic and Bob would read out some questions and the other contestants would have to guess the answers. Here are some examples:
- True or False: Inside every cat there is trapped a rabbit, and when a cat says "miaow", it is actually the rabbit saying "get me out" (True)
- True or False: The World is spherical (False)
- True or False: Super Mario is the current Chancellor of the Exchequer (True)
- True or False: Human Beings need to breathe air to survive (False)
- True or false: Cliff Richard is gay (True)
edit Early Life
Vic has recently entered the record books as the first person to be born as a result of anal intercourse. Apparently after a passionate night of bum fun between Graham Norton and Rolf Harris, Vic was conceived from Mr Harris's harris in the early evening. He was originally thought to be a turd and was about to be flushed to his death until Rolf heard a faint, high-pitched scream of 'Please Mr Harris!! Nooooo!!!' and he was rescued.
Unfortunately the pair have regretted that decision ever since as he has now grown up to be a fully-grown turd as well as a pathetic excuse for a human being in general. They have since tried to flush him back down the toilet again in an attempt to kill him once and for all, with little success.
