Quotes

Annie: [talking about Sally making headline news in the local paper] I don't know why everyone's making such a fuss - she's not the only one to make the press.
Sally: What were you in? Readers' Wives?
Annie: Yes. I've got no qualms about it. So what if I wasn't actually his wife? Although I was ashamed to be seen on that rug. Fake bearskin? Looked like someone had murdered Bungle.

The best (and driest) comedy in the UK in the last decade
22 November 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It's not often that i find myself almost pi**ing myself when watching a very dry comedy such as this, but "The Smoking Room" gets me laughing my ass off every time (sorry for the Americanisms).

As a sit-com, with a very narrow set of locations (i.e. the smoking room) it can only ever rely on the characters and the script, no big budgets for explosions, morphing into other creatures, blood or CGI in this show :) It does very well with what it has.

Like a Leprechaun that manages to get to the pot of gold and becomes the CEO of a multi-national conglomerate, "The Smoking Room" achieves everything that you want from a comedy. Good characters, a great script and amazing acting that makes the script and the characters come to life.

Without the characters, script and actors to make it all possible, "The Smoking Room" would merely be a poor attempt at comedy, but when they all come together, as they do in this TV series, comedy genius is created.

:-)
