Tired of human intrest shows? These people are. "In de Gloria" looks like one of the shows where ordinary people are presented like freaks just to get a cheap laugh. The show doesn't mock the ordinary folks who appear in these shows, but the people who make them. "In de Gloria" is so painfully accurate you don't know if you want to laugh or cry. It's the kind of satire that shows you what the human race is really like. Written by Anonymous

Did You Know?


One of the sketches ("Boemerang") about a presenter not being able to hold of his laughter during a serious talk with people who are the victims of medical blunders is often mistaken for real (by non-Belgian audiences). It was featured on 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno' and gained some Internet notoriety through it's popularity on YouTube. See more »

How sharp can you get ?
24 October 2002 | by (Gent, Belgium) – See all my reviews

For ten years I have not owned a television, relying on family or friends if I wanted to see something really good or - in my case - a soccer game. Only a few shows are worthwhile and "In de Gloria" definitely is one of them.

This is state of the art humour that must be difficult to translate to other languages because of the multitude of cultural references it contains. Basically the show mocks TV-makers that abuse any poor soul whose behaviour is slightly out of the ordinary and who are only too willing to show off in front of the camera. It is true that Human Interest is polluting the media landscape as never before. Just one of the plots to give a slight idea what the show is like (all are actors):

A man in his fifties, vaguely resembling Jesus Christ is being interviewed in view of the annual procession that goes around town. He has been playing Christ's role, carrying the cross, for more than 20 years now, but the end of his reign is dawning: recent scientific research has shown that Jesus looked much different from what is commonly accepted. (They show an article with drawing in the paper - real) So the organization has decided to engage another, utterly unsuspecting and younger, citizen, who indeed remarkably looks like the "new Jesus" (hilarious make-up). Moreover, the older guy recently has had trouble kneeling, while Jesus at several occasions "kneels".

The TV-crew will now closely follow how the elder hands over the "practicing cross" to the younger. The unwilling old Jesus, the bemused new Jesus, the arrogant organizer and the caring (but cruel) interviewer, all actors do a wonderful job in this hilarious "human interest show".

If you want to know what Belgium looks like, watch this.
