Unexpectedly Brilliant
11 May 2010 | by (England) – See all my reviews

As a fan of both Fonejacker and Kayvan Novak I was as much looking forward to this series as I was sceptical about it, due to the obvious change in concept.

Facejacker however, proved to be just as clever, innovative, witty and laugh out loud funny as the Bafta Award winning Fonejacker. The show has a fairly simple premise with Novak disguised as various characters(many of which are adapted from Fonejacker) using prosthetic makeup and often eccentric clothing, then putting the characters in real life situations with unsuspecting members of the public.

Admittedly this show may not be for everyone, as you really do have to have a sense of humour to get it and the odd character doesn't really work. However if you're looking for 25 minutes of quality entertainment and original comedy with a very funny set of characters created by the talented Novak then this show is ideal for you.

The main cast of characters include:

TERRY TIBBS, who is a used car salesman. He is perhaps considered the most widely known and popular character. He appeared as a guest on the teleshopping channel price-drop TV and also starred in Come Dine With Me.

AUGUSTUS KWEMBE, who is a very polite Ugandan scammer from the Republic of Uganda. He is based on the Fonejacker character George Agdgdgwngo. His catchphrase is "scam the UK, the Augustus way". He tries to gain people's bank account details with a series of scams such as hypnotherapy and pretending to be a traffic warden, checkout assistant and Beefeater at the Tower of London.

AZIZ AZIZZI, who is a journalist working for a fictional show named World Modern Developments for Iraq TV. Similar to Mr. Doovdé he believes that acronyms and initialisms are how words are spelt and not pronounced and, as a result, he mistakes them for pronounceable words e.g. 'Joovc' (JVC), 'Pük' (PC). He is accompanied by a man simply known as 'Translator'.

BRIAN BADONDE, who is an art critic based on Brian Sewell who has a speech impediment called Bourette's, where everything he says ends up starting with the letter 'B' (e.g: Bello, umm... Boo you bell baubles?/Hello, umm... Do you sell baubles?). He works on a fictional show called 'Voyage into Art, with Brian Badonde'.

DONALD DONALDSON, is a director who tried to make it in Hollywood but after a tragic accident that killed four extras on his 1976 film, Three Kings of Zanzibar, he quit Hollywood and returned to England. He currently works with animals to try and make them big animal stars.

DR ALI, who is a plastic surgeon who over reacts to his customers current appearances, telling them they are ugly and have to pay for beauty. He would also over charge them after going through what they want to change about them. He claims to be the former plastic surgeon of Saddam Hussein.

MR PROVIDINGS, who is an Indian man based on the character from Fonejacker who works at a Fast food restaurant in Northern Ireland called Moira's. He is forced to take over from the Automated Order Machine after it has technical difficulties or "goes mad". He does not appear, but his voice can be heard over an intercom.
