IF you loved the television show then get ready for the stage version of The Fast Show-Live which is bringing its award-winning comedy to the Regent.
Swiss Tony, the Suit You brothers and the trials and tribulation of Ted and Ralph will all come alive for one night on November 5 at the Ipswich venue.
The top quality cast will include Paul Whitehouse, Charlie Higson, Mark Williams, Simon Day and Arabella Weir.
Fast Show writers Paul Whitehouse and Charlie Higson first met when they were at the University of East Anglia and a partnership blossomed.
After a few years of dead-end jobs and aspirations of rock stardom,, the duo began writing after their mutual friend Harry Enfield asked for help.
The show burst on to the scene on September 27, 1994 and was both baffling and brilliant.

There are very few comedy shows which could persuade a nation that "nice" was a good catchphrase. But the brilliantly observed jazz man did just this.
It is observational comedy at its best and few can watch Ralph's desperate antics to get closer to his gardener, Ted, without squirming.
It offered a new form for the sketch show and injected life into a jaded format.
The stage version promises to be just as fast-paced with all the favourite characters, so book your seat now.
Tickets cost £25 and £22.50 and are available at central box office on 01473 433100.
