Fool Brittania
7 October 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It has been twelve years since Trigger Happy TV burst onto screens and broke the mould for hidden camera prank shows for the modern age, and since then the star of the show has appeared in documentaries and even I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here!, but he is back for a brand new hidden camera prank show. Dom Joly travels the length and breadth of Great Britain (and abroad where thousands of British people go on holiday) to play comedy pranks on unsuspecting members of the public with his combination of disguises and reoccurring characters. These characters crop up in places such as Bath, Blackpool Zoo, Bournemouth, Cambridge, Caravan Park, The Cotswolds, Devon, Edinburgh, Land's End, Liverpool, London, Oxford, P&O Cruises, Padstow, Stratford-upon-Avon, Twickenham and York. Recoccuring characters by Joly include the naughty ASBO Vicar, the unhelpful Happy To Help booth' attendant, ridiculous Health & Safety officer Ian Yard, the unnecessary Door Bouncer, the mad Butcher, Britain's Unluckiest Man, the Garden Gnomes, the Parcel Delivery Man with strange packages, the American tourist (and his wife) and many more. Obviously it is not quite as intelligent and innovative as Trigger Happy TV was, but Joly wanted to make a Saturday night show that all the family can watch, and he certainly done that, there is something for everyone to laugh at and it is good simple unscripted on-the-spot comedy. Very good!
