Fizzogs Comedy Character Showreel
In this Showreel you will find some of our best loved characters – The Ode Folk, Mags & Barb, Wayne Kerr and The Kids. After doing numerous live shows with these characters we thought it was time we brought them to the big – or little as the case may be – screen. Filmed and edited by Leigh Maddox www.mdx-marketing.co.uk Directed by Fizzog and Ross Berkeley. Music by Chris Groucutt.
Hope you like it folks

Hope you enjoy it!
The Walking Jed
What would four elderly ladies do if they were to find themselves in the middle of a Zombie Apocalypse… absolutely nothing! They would carry on with their daily routine just like anybody else would, wouldn’t they? See for yourself.
We made this video to raise money for Comic Relief with the help of some great people. Venomous Little Man Productions filmed and co wrote it with us www.venomouslittleman.co.uk . Carl Braid edited it for us. We had the guys from Silent Studios do majority of the zombie make up www.silentstudios.co.uk and it wouldn’t be the same without Ian Winter’s news reporter (who you may have seen on BBC Midlands Today). Thanks to everyone involved – especially Emma, James, Gill, Esther, Woody & Dave – and we’re happy to say we raised just over £400 for a really great charity.
Ascension – Teaser Trailer
Ascension is a short British Zombie Horror Film that we were asked to be involved in by Dave Jeffrey, who we had worked with on a project years ago. Created by Venomous Little Man Productions www.venomouslittleman.co.uk and based on a short story by Dave who is also a renowned horror author. VLM teamed up with Silent Studios and have produced something quite unique, which will be released later this year and taken to many film festivals around the country.
It’s a project which us Fizzogs are very proud to be a part of.
FABA is the story of Stella Morris – a poor, forty-something , working class mother of six from the Black Country – who sees two friends (dippy Manda and scary Kaz) doing an ABBA Tribute and sees poundsigns. She persuades them that she should be their manager. But in order to cash in properly she suggests a new approach: they’ll ditch the ABBA songs (so there’s no copyright) and get a record deal with their own material. The problem is, the band – FABA – are nowhere near as good as they think they are! Stella must resort to blackmail, theft and serious hoodwinking as she moves them up the ladder to stardom. FABA is a dark sitcom written by Ross Berkeley, produced by Isis Media and starring (and inspired by) the Fizzogs. The Fizzogs will also soon tread the boards in ‘FABA – The Musical’ which features the songs ‘Porta-loo’, ‘Nigel’, and ‘Dirty Dancing Queen’.
Black by Day
Black by Day is a Comedy/Drama set in the Black Country and traces the lives of the notorious Froggatt and Cotterill families – also known as the neighbours from hell. They grew up as childhood friends and have stayed close throughout their lives – often too close for comfort when it comes to their fights and feuds.
After being introduced to Matt Hickinbottom of Post Office Studios we soon realised that we had a great concept for the big and small screen which resulted in co writing and producing the first two episodes of the series with Matt before it was picked up by award-winning independent production company Isis Media.
We like to think that the two episodes show that we (the Fizzogs) are just as effective on film as we are in the flesh.
