Location: 316, New Cross Road, SE14 6AF

Description: Jim Moir's (AKA Vic Reeves) comedy career began in New Cross, London, in the mid-1980s.

Having tried out various stage names, he settled on 'Vic Reeves' and began a show called 'Vic Reeves' Big Night Out' at this very pub - 'The Goldsmiths Tavern'.

It was here that he met and began working with 'Bob Mortimer', and the show then moved to a bigger venue, the Albany Theatre in Deptford, in 1989. The show began to attract various well-known audience members, such as Charlie Higson, Paul Whitehouse, Jonathan Ross and Alan Yentob.

Reeves & Mortimer's unique comedy combines surreal, often inexplicable, visually and verbally inventive material which often verges on the downright bizarre with traditional comedy double act staples such as violent, cartoonish slapstick (such as the duo engaging in escalating fights with large frying pans, baseball bats, hammers etc...), witty, often very silly banter (usually at their trademark, prop-strewn desk) and purposefully corny, rapid-fire jokes.

In short - Vic and Bob are geniuses and this pub lies at the very heart of what made and makes them great!
