Making a good sitcom is very much like making love to a beautiful woman...
6 October 2005 | by ethanruntSee all my reviews

Swiss Toni, a sketch from the fast show, the greatest sketch show in recent years, is about a man who lives with his mum and runs a used car dealership. He spends his time trying to get back with his ex-wife and his company is doing badly. With classic episodes including one with 4 different versions of the same story, one about a woman trying to be the next J.K. Rowling and one with the group bringing in a robot to be a salesman this show lives up to the fast show, especially Charlie Higson's amazingly pretentious character is amazingly likable, and sometimes sympathetic. With a young boy, an old alcoholic and a young beautiful receptionist, this sitcom really feels different, even though it isn't.
