Best Comedy Show- Ever
21 October 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I love this show. I have never felt incomplete after watching the shortest 30 minutes I have ever burnt.

As many other comedy lovers would know, the amount of hit and miss sketch shows that come and go leave you feeling unloved and abandoned.

This show never missed the mark and the best editing i have ever seen. Nothing rehashed, nothing tiresome, nothing that's not 100% fantastic.

I don't want to say too much on the topic, but the only other British sketch show that is almost as good as this is Little Britain. But that's just me.

The sketch show cleans the slate for future shows that aspire to make us all laugh. It also shows them where to go, and what's the best way to do things; once.

Top show, 10/10.
