Very Very Funny
12 December 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Comedy is in the eye of the beholder. Have read some of the comments about Chewin' The Fat and can't believe people who laugh at Bottom or The Young Ones feel qualified to put this brilliant show down.

The Scots are capable of laughing at themselves and if the English or Americans don't get it then all the better.

Not every piece of work is created for an international market and you have to wonder at people who only produce work for the Americans. After all there is nothing funnier out of America than their President!!

Chewin' The Fat is a refreshing and often strangely realistic interpretation of some of the finer points of Scotlands society. I don't laugh all the way through it, nor would i expect to, but I have laughed heartily at a good bit of the show. Thats enough to keep me happy.
