A series of self contained TV films starring performers from London's "Comic Strip" comedy club and their friends. Noted for a high sense of parody of previous films, literature, and generally everyone in sight.

Mel Smith and Griff Rhys-Jones present a series of short (often tasteless, always scathing) sketches about modern life and the stupidity and gullibility of those who believe in it. Written by

The show is considered to be a spin-off of "Not The 9 O'Clock News", which Mel Smith and Griff Rhys-Jones were regular performers and they wanted to keep the show and it's humor in tradition of "Not The 9 O'clock News". Chris Langham was also a performer on "Not the 9 O'clock News". See more »
This is one of the best sketch-based shows I've seen. I'm a big sucker for this kind of british humour and this show really made me laugh my pants off (quite literally actually). Both Smith and Jones are great comedians which give even greater performances. Highly recommended.
