The framing device is what appears to be a pair of exceptionally bright and markedly immature boys, the titular Danny Mash (Matt Lucas) and Gareth Peas (David Walliams), screwing around in their high school video lab doing sketch comedy parodies of TV shows. And that's what the show is, basically, except that the boys are the future creators of "Little Britain" and their material, silly and vulgar and random as it may appear, is astonishingly original and sophisticated. The aesthetic reminds me of the Cartoon Network show "Adult Swim," very hip and slightly hallucinatory. I wouldn't say it's comparable to L&W's later, upscale BBC series, or better or worse, just from a very different time in their careers, and if you like them it's definitely worth watching.
