I can't describe how unfunny this show is., 1 September 2011
Author: Rob Lefebour from United Kingdom

I recently wrote a review for scrubs stating it is the worst show I have ever seen, I stand corrected.

This has to be THE most unfunny show I have ever seen, even if the writing of the show was good (Its not, its obscene) the actors skill in delivering the unfunny jokes are so poor that even the most well written script would be ruined by there lack of talent.

I cannot fathom how this is a critically claimed show when the basis of it is failed celebrities answering questions that don't make sense and giving answers that they believe to be funny, while the audience looks on straight faced.

I think the main problem of the show is the utterly stupid content, it should not be classed as a comedy if even the audience rarely laugh at the poorly constructed gags.

I'm honestly telling you as a human being, do something else with your time, but don't even give this show a go, it is beyond description on how much of a searingly unfunny experience this was.

My hate for this show is so passionate that I about ready to plead to the BBC to cancel the show.

How it won anything or how anyone on this earth could find this un- witty, unfunny, poorly constructed piece of absolute trash funny, I cannot understand, I literally cannot grasp how someone could experience anything but pain watching this show.
