The Worst Comedy I Have Ever Seen
28 July 2010 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

I was so utterly appalled by the quality of this so called 'comedy' that I was compelled to write a review.

Now after seeing 2 episodes I can honestly say that it is the worst comedy I have ever seen, let alone sketch comedy. The sketches shown were (with the notable exception of 2 mildly funny sketches) predominantly badly written, poorly acted, and displayed almost no discernible knowledge of comic timing or comedic conventions. Furthermore, of the sketches I saw there was clearly no thought put into seemingly all but 2 of them. They are poorly executed versions of incomplete and (it would appear) hastily written scripts that should never have been filmed to begin with.

That this show was green-lit, let alone made into a 6 series show, is despicable.
