Comedy for Geriatrics
8 December 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The jokes on Air Farce probably were never funny but if they ever were it was back in World War Two.

They have a chicken cannon. They put garbage in the cannon and then shoot it at pictures of politicians.

It's like watching half an hour of a nightmare where you're stuck in the audience of a community theatre show at an old folks home where nobody is allowed to walk out.

It's just painful.

They do impersonations where they put on a wig and then say for example "Hi I'm Bob Rae" but then they just use their own voice. That's not an impersonation, it's just a confused senior citizen wearing a wacky wig telling jokes that for some reason they think might be funny to somebody else.

What is CBC thinking? The people writing the jokes for CBC must be world war veterans who think that wacky wigs and puns are the peak of comedy, maybe in ten years they'll start writing the latest craziest kind of comedy, knock knock jokes!
