Saturday Night Fry was a six-part comedy series on BBC Radio 4, first broadcast in 1988. Hosted by Stephen Fry - accompanied each week by a selection of guests including Jim Broadbent, Emma Thompson, Phyllida Law, Alison Steadman and long-time collaborator Hugh Laurie - the show took the form of a round table discussion and sketches which veered tangentially from the sublime to the ridiculous. Although slightly different in format the series could be seen as a direct precursor to A Bit of Fry And Laurie, the 1989 TV series, which employed a very similar style of humour and wordplay. A delightful snapshot of one of the UKs finest comedy double acts.
