Hugh Laurie, Robbie Coltrane, Emma Thompson and Stephen Fry team with some of the other ingenious comedic Brits in 13 episodes of “Alfresco,” released on DVD recently by Acorn Media.

This hilarious early 80s sketch comedy series gives you a rare glimpse at these four superstars at a young age as they perform SNL-style skits.

The series was released August 26 and features hits on the US, bureaucracy, the Cold War and especially themselves with irreverent references co-written by Laurie and Fry.

It’s Saturday Night Live meets Monty Python, and you’ll love it.

The series runs 315 minutes with a bonus 3-part pilot series.
