Cult television comedies Shooting Stars and The Fast Show are to stage a series of huge rock-style live events.

Vic Reeves, Bob Mortimer, Ulrika Jonsson, Paul Whitehouse, Charlie Higson and the rest will re-create their television successes live for 3,500 comedy fans a night at the Labatt's Apollo in Hammersmith, west London. Tickets went on sale yesterday for the first six nights of an open ended run, starting on 27 January. Higson said: "We're doing it because it is a buzz, going on stage in front of a live audience - and because of the money."
