EXPLOSION!
18 October 2003 | by (Melbourne, Australia and Boston) – See all my reviews

This is one of the funniest programs I have ever seen. No matter how many times I see it, it always makes me laugh. My favourite skit of all time has to be the Gas Explosion skit...what a riot. The humour might be stupid at times, you just can't help but laugh at the quality of the acting and the originality. The actors/actresses are so versatile that they can perform any role as needed. I wish that it would be released on DVD or VHS so that everyone around the world could enjoy it.
