Funniest s**t ever
31 May 2008 | by See all my reviews

Fonejacker is by far the funniest show on TV now. Its a long long time when I've found a show so funny that I have to make sure I'm not eating any food or drinking any liquid when I sit down to watch this show because It will likely be projected forth onto my TV screen if I do, such is the explosive nature of the hilarity of the voices, the characters and the whole concept of the show.

Some of the characters are my favorites while others I will watch and laugh with the same regularity of say an episode of the Simpsons but the one that really is funniest is the well-spoken African gentleman who calls up unsuspecting citizens and tries to get them to give out their bank account details for such farcical reasons as: "The money needs to be pressed and steamed". The fact that the victims on the other end of the line don't realise its a joke is the other thing that makes it hilarious. Instead they get angry at him and then he pretends to get upset. You just have to see it. The accompanying animations and live-action footage are hilarious as well.

To summarise: I have never laughed as hard or violently at a TV show in a long long time.
