Just plain unfunny
11 February 2004 | by (Manchester, England) – See all my reviews

I did enjoy Rob Brydon's Marion and Geoff as it was a weird new style of humour where we knew we shouldn't find this man's obviously tragic life as funny, but we did. Director's Commentary on the other hand is completely over-hyped, overrated and just plain not funny.

In its 30 Minute slot, Director's Commentary features Rob Brydon as an acclaimed director, commentating on "his work". Although the concept is unique, the thirty minutes given for the show is too long and the content of his "comedy" is run dry almost immediately. He rambles on for basically half an hour about every random diverse topic under the sun and this happens on every episode.

My advice would be, there is much better comedy out there worth watching over this, however if you really wish to bore yourself, then be my guest.
