Classic surreal comedy
19 April 2001 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Another great piece British comedy. I don't think they will ever make another series, but we can dream. So what if every show was a variation on the same theme, that allowed the jokes to build, though I'm sure it left some new viewers somewhat perplexed. I really hope Harry Hill is given the opportunity do do something on his own terms again with a decent budget. TV burp was entertaining but its compressed production schedule and late night slot could not support the more complicated sketches that would often feature in the Harry Hill Show. Curse Channel 4 for burying the third series! I want to see Burt Kwouk doing the hey little hen dance again. A release on DVD is long overdue.
