how diabolical was this show exactly?

the cast may have been have been 'all-star' but the outcome was anything but comedy.

the sketches seemed to be cast offs from the comedians' other shows that weren't funny enough to be used earlier.

the one-offs such as "ladder crazy" weren't too bad, mainly because it had Steve Coogan at his best- charicatured loony- but the repetitions of vic and bob's material, such as "monkey trousers", "I'm a nightmare" and the Roxanne spoof, were just not funny.

It seemed to be an attempt to copy the Fast Show's surreal skits, with repetition the main comic technique, but they forgot to include any humour.

I just hope that for the majority of the people involved (Coogan, John Thomson, David Walliams, Reece Shearsmith), this was just a one-off and that they had some fun acting out the sketches, cos there is little fun to be had watching them.
