Trivia

There is a sketch about biscuits. During a "Have I Got News for You" appearance, within the time-line of his own sketch show, David Mitchell spent a while discussing a news story about how Gordon Brown was interviewed by Mumsnet, and couldn't think of an answer to a simple question about what his favorite kind of biscuit was.

Goofs

The boom mike is visible over the Director when he's sitting in front of his monitor in the "Now we know" sketch. Interestingly, it's a sketch about making a film, so there was equipment that was clearly intended to be seen, too, which probably made it confusing. See more »

Quotes

Mr Terrific: And there's just time to go to Gyles Brandreth for the last word!
Gyles Brandreth: That's Numberwank!
Mr Terrific: It's NumberWANG!
Gyles Brandreth: ...Fuck.

Very funny surreal comedy
25 September 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Just catching up with the first series from 2006 and must say it's given me quite a few belly laughs. I loved The Green Clarinet man sketch - how we may wish to have our very own clarinet to sort out awkward office managers.

I still haven't worked out the weekly Number-Wang quiz show - and nor have the contestants by the look of things.

It's at times very inventive and played with genuine wit. I laughed out loud at a sketch ( not sure from which series) featuring a cheap looking pedal bin shaped Robot that has a switch to change it into either a Cheese-bot or Petrol-bot.

Regardless so say it get's confused and fills up a car with cheese - and then fails to commit suicide at it's own failings when further confusion means that it covers itself with cheese instead of petrol.
