The least funny UK Comedy I have EVER seen...
24 August 2009 | by dschmedingSee all my reviews

I stumbled across this comedy show since I read several positive remarks on it and since I am a huge fan of UK comedy I gave it a try. Honestly... most jokes are as stupid as stuff you see on German TV at Friday nights comedy shows. I watched 4 episodes and I didn't laugh ONCE. To make it clear... I don't need laugh tracks to show me where the fun is and I sure like the basic way the show is presented by not just adding clip to clip but making them reference each other and blending one scene to the next BUT... although "Snuff Box" incorporates these ideas I wonder who considers the show innovative or intelligent because the segways are done in similar concept shows like Mr. Show or Tim+Eric way more creative (Tim+Eric take creativity over the top for that matter). Here it just blends dull jokes in recurring situations and locations (a country club where the 2 main characters chat, a sex-shop where one gets beaten up by different guys behind the counter, a guy always stealing the least valuable goods when presented with suitcases of cash and some execution scenes) which seem forced when they try to get some attention by making fun of death and misfortune, prostitution or swearing all the time and even then seem childish and dumb rather than shocking or over the top. The whole thing just seems so wrong to me I wonder who gave a budget to this. Avoid and rather try US Alternatives like the fore-mentioned Tim+Eric or Mr.Show with David Cross.
