A unique comedy show
14 July 2001 | by See all my reviews

The Micallef Program/Programme/Pogram really is quite a unique show. It is unlike American sitcoms, classic British comedy or, to a good degree, the television show that spawned Shaun Micallef, "Full Frontal".

Micallef and his crew (Francis Greenslade, among others) pursue this unique style of humour that can perhaps be described as taking things literally and then turning them on their head. Some of the sketches are classics- the Sergeant and the Constable for instance. On occasions the strange sense of humour fails to hit its mark, but when it does, it is, to many people, very funny.

Shaun Micallef is truly a talented comedian, and it can be hoped that there will be a fourth season of The Micallef Program.
