"An original idea. That can't be too hard. The library must be full of them"

Stephen Fry

Fry and Laurie as Jeeves and Wooster

The idea for a Jeeves and Wooster dance began with a boxed set of DVDs of the 1990s TV series.

Adapted from the novels of P G Wodehouse, set against a 1930s backdrop of Hooray Henries, the series featured Fry and Laurie who are simply perfect in the roles of, respectively, Jeeves: the steadfast and resourceful gentleman's gentleman and the dapper but dim Bertram Wooster. Bertie is consistently at the mercy of splendidly indomitable aunts, plus a relentless list of dotty females intent upon leading him a merry dance. Fortunately Jeeves can always be relied upon to come to the rescue..

The short and sweet theme tune plays over and over and over between the various episodes. It drives you crazy, it gets under your skin, it's impossible to keep your feet still... The class loved it. Any excuse to dress as Jazz Age flappers... in black and silver, black and gold, pearls and jet beads, feathers and fringing, to dance the Charleston and the Black Bottom, in Arabic style.

What Ho, Habibi! Or (here in Yorkshire) Hey Up, Love!
