Basically, without spoiling anything, if you've seen anything by Dan Clark (like How Not To Live Your Life or the shorts he did for Comedy Central/Paramount channel) then you'll know what to expect. It isn't "surreal", if you want that then go watch Mighty Boosh, but is very clever. It's the choice of words. It has one-liners that you'll find yourself quoting again and again, ala "HNTLYL".
The show itself and it's content is fairly obvious. It's about Estate Agents (the English term for people whom sell property). You probably can work out the set up - as estate agents, in any country, are competitive. It is an adult comedy (with naughty words) and can be a bit low-brow. Having said that, it isn't a gutter comedy such as Two Pints, Coming of Age or the terrible show known as Grown Ups. Nor is it a canned laughter laden show with no progression or development, like My Family or Not Going Out. This is why I use How Not TO Live Your Life as a guide - it's the only comedy of it's type. So my advice is watch it. Laugh. Love. Then go see Dan Clark (the writer and creator and star) in person in his tour (spring 2011 - UK)
In short it is him still working out his comedy style and a stepping stone to the amazing and genius "How Not To Live Your Life". If you don't like that show, you probably wont like this.
