Jeff from Peep Show - aka Neil Fitzmaurice - on why Mark Corrigan is the just worst
Jeff is just saying what everyone else is thinking about Mark
Jeff from Peep Show is one of the great sitcom villains - or is he? What if he is just a normal bloke, and Mark Corrigan is actually the psychopath.
Neil Fitzmaurice - aka the actor that plays Jeff - is currently starring in the BBC Two comedy Semi-Detached, so we got to (virtually) sit down with him and discuss the creation of the character - from how Neil was originally brought in to read for Super Hans (that would have been a very different show), to why he always tried to play Jeff as a real person and not a cartoon villain.
“I think Jeff just realises very early on that Mark is an absolute tit.”
