Watson & Oliver - A Great Sketch Show
30 May 2013 | by (SC USA) – See all my reviews

Sketch comedy as performed by W.& O. (or any female duo) will inevitably invite comparison with French and Saunders who set a particularly high bar for both sexes in the eighties. I am not starved for an understanding of UK comedy as I grew up on DNAYS, Python, M&W, Ronnies, Perrin, Fawlty et al, through Comic Strip, Young Ones, F&S, Blackadder to Spaced, Ted, Office and Black Books. In the US, sketch comedy is pretty much relegated to SNL, Kids TV or Animation so both seasons of W.& O. were really refreshing.

My entire family and I have really enjoyed this show having just caught the first season by chance and watched in its entirety one evening. Steeped in the traditions of the seventies, it lifted our spirits and genuinely made us laugh. Some gags occasionally missed their mark but everything was solid and well written and carried by a sense of conviction from both comedians and cast.

The second season we watched weekly and it retained the high-standard of tightly written sketches and seemed more polished. Should they not get renewed for a third season I believe we will see more of them as they have considerable acting abilities.

Give it a go!
