With so much talent, it is no surprise this is a very funny show! There are many sketch shows out there right now, and I think it is all too easy to present a funny, lovable character like Harry Enfield's Kevin the Teenager, The Fast Show's Spanish News Team, or Little Britain's Lou and Andy. The All Star Comedy Show (or Monkey Trousers as it is known nowadays) gives you such a wide variety of jokes and humour it never gets old.
Some programmes get a load of characters, give them catchphrases and simply place them in various situations. The All Star Comedy Show/Monkey Trousers not only has the odd repeating character, but also loads of new, fresh characters and situations that have 'guest-spots' so there is always something new and funny to see, without it getting too old too fast.
Harry Enfield's 'Brand Spanking New Show' wasn't as good as the original because the main actor, Enfield, made a mistake about what humour to use. Because there are so many different actors and comedians on the show, the sketches are wide and varied and different so you rarely see the same faces over and over again. I think that is the beauty. It is a melting pot of different ideas and jokes all mixed together to create something forever funny!
If you don't believe me, judge for yourself. If you still don't like it, then I am surprised you do not like such diverse humour!
