As a fan of The Goodies, (Which this is essentially a low-rate rip-off of) I decided to give this new surrealist sitcom a try. The result was the worst and longest half hour of my life.
The characters have no defining traits (apart from Marek Larwood's character appearing to have psychological difficulties) and are distinctly unlikeable. Greg Davies gave an excellent performance as cynical teacher Mr Gilbert in E4 sitcom The Inbetweeners but proves here that his writing talent is practically non-existent.
As hinted at in the previous comment, the writing of this so-called comedy is it's downfall. The height of humour in We are Klang is where Marek Larwood asks where people in the studio audience are from and insulting them by calling them things such as "dog botherer" or creating a machine where the acronym of the name sounds like the word penis. The first episode also contains an anti-semitic and completely unnecessary musical number. The plots are ridiculous (even for a surreal comedy), the acting is wooden, the humour is incredibly base and, at times, very crass.
Another failure of this is that it's too similar to The Goodies (which the writers waste no time informing the audience of) and the writers seem very proud of this. As with The Mighty Boosh, the writers decide to save money on cast by playing almost all of the secondary characters by themselves. This worked for Boosh because it was an original idea and the actors suited the extra characters. This is not the case for Klang.
In summary, this is quite possibly the worst sitcom ever devised. The acting talents of Debbie Chazen are wasted and, if memory serves, I only laughed once during the half hour. I strongly advise those who read this to avoid We are Klang. It is truly painful to watch.
