Pretty good actually
24 May 2010 | by (Manchester, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Fonejacker was a good concept by itself using something as simple as prank calls it actually managed to be really funny. Like with any comedy it runs out of time and a new approach may be required. Enter Facejacker with the same characters but we see all that happens with them and we see their victim's reactions and the character's delivery. All of it seems very familiar as we have seen the public being set up in various ways before but in Facejacker it is still funny as even though they are characters we have already seen Facejacker doesn't fail to be at least amusing. Some of the sketches fall flat but there are enough other sketches that are ludicrous but still funny. The danger was that they would all flat but luckily that doesn't prove to be the case. The more notable characters include Augustus Kwembe the Ugandan scammer who aims to get the bank account details from as many people has he can. I originally thought he wouldn't work in the Facejacker format but he actually turned out to be funnier. Another example of this sort of thing was Terry Tibbs, the cockney salesman. In my view he is the funniest character on offer here and definitely works better in the (I know I'm saying it again but I can't think of anything else to say) Facejacker format. The most notable thing for me was his appearance on Price Drop TV. If you only ever see one sketch from this show watch that it is hilarious. Terry Tibbs is just too likable to express any disdain against which is what I think makes the character work the best.

All in all it is pretty funny, perhaps hit and miss at times but still a funny show that has good potential if it is utilised enough.
