Mark and Jez are a couple of twenty-something roommates who have nothing in common - except for the fact that their lives are anything but normal. Mayhem ensues as the pair strive to cope with day-to-day life.
"Fun At The Funeral Parlour" is a disturbingly understated masterpiece of offbeat contemporary comedy. Having stumbled upon it by coincidence late one night on British Satellite TV I was pleasantly surprised with my discovery. The show hasn't been overly advertised and, thus, a smaller than deserved audience has been netted, although I'm sure that anyone who has had the fortune to witness "Fun At The Funeral Parlour" has become an instant fan. Anyone who gives this show a try should keep an eye out for regular appearances by "Fast Show" and other British comedy actors and guest appearances by other well known British celebrities (Art Malik, Brian Blessed...). In summation - the most original, outlandish, unusual, brilliant comedy to be written. We await the next series'!!!
