Network has just released THE VERY BEST OF FRIDAY NIGHT LIVE. This two disc set contains the highlights of this successful show, released for the first time in any format.

And this is your chance to win one of two copies we have up for grabs in our Comedy Competition.

FRIDAY NIGHT LIVE featured the first ever appearance of the now iconic, loud–mouthed “Loadsamoney” – character that sent Harry Enfield on his way to comedy superstardom. Alongside Enfield, we are entertained by the likes of Stephen Fry, Lee Evans, Moray Hunter, Jack Docherty, Josie Lawrence, Hugh Laurie, Josie Lawrence, Dame Edna Everage, Robbie Coltrane and Jo Brand (in her television debut).

This two disc set has a RRP of £19.99 (or less from
