Forgotten comedy genius...
11 October 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is yet another comedy series that has been totally forgotten about

  • A big part of that was probably Marc Wootton being interviewed (in


character) on Jonathan Ross - he was either very drunk or acting drunk incredibly well (its difficult to tell with Wootton as you will know if you've ever seen this or Cyderdelic for instance!). There was a bit of a fuss after this appearance in the media and his show was quietly taken off the air - it has never been repeated.

Do you like Most Haunted? Or do you know someone who likes Most Haunted (or other shows of that ilk). Well if you like them you wont like this! But if you find them funny in any way you will probably love this! I cant recommend this enough - go and buy the box set and get his other genius series thrown in (My Best Friend).

You haven't seen anything like this trust me!
