I honestly believe that Geoff is one of the greatest comedy characters of all time, so pretty much everything he ever said was gold.

Geoff is just an incredible character. In a show full of grotesques and supernatural monsters Geoff still manages to stand out.

I don't know if anyone does anger as well or as funny as Reece Shearsmith , even when Geoff is being quiet you can see the rage within him, it's fucking great.

Him handing some toilet roll to Mike, "all posh look", brilliant.

One of my favourite lines. It's the way Pemberton quietly exits the frame, then rushes back in to shout the one question he's been desperate to ask.

Cleese, Mayall and Shearsmith are the greatest angry comedy actors. Unhinged mania par excellence.

Hats off, too, to the LOG make-up and costume departments for making Geoff look perfect. The thinning perm, the sweaty, ruddy complexion (a heart attack waiting to happen), and the beige, grey, clumpy wardrobe. Such a beautifully realised character in every way.

Hardest I've laughed in my entire life.

The bit in Apocalypse that makes me laugh the hardest is where Geoff distracts Hillary Briss by shouting 'ohh, there's a load of sausages look!' and runs off.

Completely agree. Love Geoff.

They put me in a box with me coat on.....I know it don't sound much when you say it out loud..

Just to get away from Geoff for a bit, the whole Xmas special should qualify as their best moment. One of my favourite christmas episodes of anything.

Genuinely frightening ending to it too.

Shearsmith crashing into the room on his tiny bicycle. Fucking Nora, it's hilarious.

the little kid going "aw, fuck" at the end of the Maxi Power story in series three is probably my favourite bit of comedy swearing ever

Exactly what I thought of when I read that. The look on his face as he's riding around on it.

Put me down as another Geoff Tipps fan. Just magic.

Also love the cleaner/housewife couple who’s name I forget. The musical delivery of “this way, that way, some of it barely legal!” enters my internal monologue at the oddest times. Lovely rhythm in the delivery.
