The British comedy legend reveals he has given up his alter ego forever and NEVER speaks to his famous pal
TV’s Jim Moir has said he’s done with comedy alter-ego Vic Reeves.
The funny man-turned-artist said he and his pal Bob Mortimer, now 63, have turned down all offers to collaborate.
They haven’t been on TV together in a decade and have also drifted apart off-screen
Jim, 64, told Radio Times: “We’ve had offers from everywhere. But that’s all I do. I gave up. i did that
“We never really talk much. Bob and I have never spoken on the phone.
“We’ll see him every now and then and chat about things. It’s not a conscious thing, we haven’t discussed it.”
The pair began working together in the 1980s and achieved TV gold with their films Big Night Out and Shooting Stars.
Jim continued, “Viewers tend to think that on-screen couples’ lives are intertwined.
“People always thought that about me and Bob. do you go out in the evening We always said no, we don’t do that.
“We see each other during the day, we film.
“We used to go to the pub in our 20s, but we don’t really do that anymore.”
Jim will be starring in a Sky Arts series about painting birds starting April 19th.
He admitted: “I said I do that when it comes to painting and birding and I do it with Nancy. And they said yes.”
Jim revealed on the Adam Buxton Podcast in September 2021 that he has an inoperable acoustic neuroma, a form of tumor that has taken away hearing in his left ear.
