AllMusic Review by

It's no mere coincidence that back in 1978 the original vinyl pressing of this third and final Derek & Clive outing came with its own barf bag. The album's improvised dialogues delve lower even than Dudley Moore and Peter Cook's two previous albums as their perverse alter egos. This makes for some painfully unfunny comedy at times. Even the rare premise that works (such as the "Celebrity Suicide" bit) leaves the listener too uncomfortable to laugh. It's difficult hearing a drunken, bitter Cook bully his noticeably ill at ease partner, too.
