Comedy geniusBy a customer from London , 05 Feb 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]For any fans of Brass Eye, The Day Today, or the genius that is the Chris Morris comedy stable this is a must see. Dark, distrubing comedy sketches, screwed up sounds and visuals, this is a comedy show that pushes the boundaries of taste. Just watch and never be the same again.

Customer ReviewBy a customer from UK , 23 Jun 2008I rented this from Amazonj recently, being an avid Chris Morris fan, and I'm definitely going to buy it! At first I wasn't sure though, I've been under alot of stress at work recently, worrying, sleepless nights etc. and I was hoping for something to cheer me up, So it took me a couple of viewings to warm to it, on the first viewing, there were only a few sketches that made me laugh: Killroy losing his mind, the bloke who's car has been shrunk, "F***ING NODDY?!", but sketches like the one with the plumber, the really dark ones, made me feel kind of depressed, and I had to put some Fawlty Towers on to lighten things up.
On the second viewing however, I discovered more comedy genius that had me in tears, the lizards in the TV was hilarious! o on the whole, I highly recommend it, but if you're unhappy, its unlikely to cheer you up.
OutstandingBy LazarusMunkey (135 reviews) from Wednesbury , 31 Aug 2006This is like no comedy sketch show you have ever seen. It's uncomfortable and unnerving and takes what is acceptable as humour to a different level.
Most of the time, you are not laughing at the show, you're laughing at yourself for finding it funny, such is it's skill.
The use of music by the likes of Aphex Twin, Massive Attack and Les Rythms Digitales as well as the unusual visual style adds to the surreal and uneasy feeling that the programme generates. Every comedy boundary is pushed to the limit in this landmark series and it's all the better for it.
Oh, and it's bloody funny, too.
Bizarre and BrilliantBy Christopher Hodson from stafford, Staffordshire, England (Also known as , 23 Jul 2006Jam, british comedy at it's best, if you like 'The League of Gentlemen' and 'The IT Crowd' you will love this. There is even a bonus episode from 'Adam and Joe'. Watch this drunk or sober, you will still laugh but feel wrong about it!
Bizarre and BrilliantBy Christopher Hodson from Stafford, Staffordshire, England (Also known as , 23 Jul 2006Jam, british comedy at it's best, so very dark, if you are a fan of 'The league of Gentlemen' and 'The IT Crowd' you will love it. There is even a whole episode of Adam and Joe, worth watching when drunk and when sober! A big old thumbs up from me and my lady!
Quite good, but wierd!By a customer from Portsmouth , 15 May 2006This was classic Chris Morris, but quite a bit wierder than most of his stuff, quite surreal!
