After publishing a rant about 'idiots' - frantically hip, ignorant scenesters - Dan Ashcroft finds these same people embracing him as his idol and his nerves constantly tested by his biggest fan, moronic scene personality Nathan Barley.
Adapted from a monologue in his "Blue Jam" radio series, Chris Morris' first short film is a haunting black comedy about a man who no longer uses his name because he's decided he's ceased ... See full summary »
A collection of bleakly dark comedy sketches pushing the boundaries of taste, decency and television in general, shot using new and different techniques and fading slowly in and out of each other against a slow musical soundtrack. Regular themes include death, insanity and, most often of all, the medical profession. Written by

During the Thick Agency sketch in episode 1, the CCTV footage of Julia Davis approaching the help desk shows both the boom mic and camera operators standing behind her. The camera is visible again moments later in the sketch, reflected in the help desk's window. See more »
I provide a service despatching stupid people for the things they're best at. Like winning arguments. Stupid people are great at winning arguments because they're too stupid to realize they've lost.

Brilliant mix of horror and comedy, like David Lynch meets British humor. It's all very over the top and offensive and dark. Definitely not for everyone (not many people can laugh at jokes about dead babies and abortion or death in general). This show needs more, how to say this, an acquired taste and very very open mind. Like every other British sketch show 'Jams' roots lies in the absurd humor of Monty Python. Dark jokes are mixed with ambient music that creates nice horror film like vibe. The sketches sometimes make you think about what you just witnessed that you need to pause before you continue watching. They are actually more deep and philosophical than regular viewer might used to. Every episode starts with different intro where Chris Morris reads a poem and then welcomes us into 'Jam'. All these intros are pieces of pure art all by themselves.
And it's all as fantastic as if you die you want to come back as a snare drum.
