Refreshing take on classic comedic artform
17 April 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It's a great show and a refreshing mix of old sketch and modern alternative comedy.

It's comedy from a young Scottish perspective and ins't wrapped up in tradition so much that its smothering. Considering that the vast majority of British sketch comedy to have any success has been on BBC, and therefore quite modest, barring a few exceptions, it's nice to see that the BBC regional channels are getting a chance to express a little of their own culture on such an established platform as the Beeb.

Clearly it isn't for everyone, but that's the beauty of having an opinion of your own.

Maybe you'll enjoy it, maybe you'll be left scratching your head.

Perhaps some people need their humour spelled out for them...
