I've been a fan of British TV shows for many years. Trigger Happy TV, by far, takes the cake. The sketch comedy was brilliant, and parts were so funny that I cried from laughing so much. I can no longer hear a Nokia mobile phone go off without snikkering to myself.
If you are able to procure a copy of this on VHS or DVD, get it. Be careful, though, if you are in the States because your machine needs to be able to read PAL videos and DVDs.
A comparison to Candid Camera has been made, but Trigger Happy TV is a lot funnier and much more original in the humor content. It's the same kind of motif as Candid Camera, but the recipients of the gags are not made to look stupid like Candid Camera did often.
See this show if you have the chance to. You won't be disappointed.
