First of all, the plot summary is complete bs.Calling the main characters "students" is a total fabrication.They never say that AND they never mention their names.Yet somehow that is what the summary contains.It also says they want "to live out their dream of being in a spaghetti Western".More lies.It's weird how idiots can just make up lies and they end up becoming "facts" on a lame website.Anyway, this is probably one of the funniest episodes of The Comic Strip Presents.Most of the actors play multiple characters and for some reason I always enjoy that.This is the only time that Keith Allen was ever funny.Plus he looks Chris D'elia and that is funny on a different level.All of the characters are truly funny and that's rare for this series.You need to see this.
