As Bad As It Gets
28 May 2015 | by giggletriviaSee all my reviews

You know the scenario and the risk associated with it-you know, when a friend recommends to you a movie or a book and your take on it will then translate to the opinion you have from that point on of the friend themselves?

I am really glad that none of my friends have recommended this tripe or it would be a deal breaker.

I understand comedy is hard, and there is a unique knack required. I also want to start off with a positive-Gina Riley still makes me smirk and still has comedy presence.

that's where it starts and ends folks.

I was actually sitting there in shock watching some of these skits and how bad they were from the first episode.

What were Foxtel thinking? The writers, including B grade comedian Paul Calleja, has failed before.

There should be an inquest on who wrote, directed, then gave the final nod for the skit on the man and woman farting after a first date. This wouldn't have been funny from a Year 8 drama class.

Marg Downey was outright annoying, Magda looked tired and Shane Jacobson has done extremely well in ensuring his endearing and huggable Kenny is now all but forgotten, replaced by an enigma that is about as funny as an indoor plant.

Jane Turner was funny, once, on Full Frontal, but I'm pretty sure in the 1980s I laughed at Daryl Somers once too.

A newbie by the name of George Xanthis, whom was 50% responsible for the farting skit from hell, is definitely a good actor, he acted as if he could not translate from drama roles to comedy-perfectly.

As if my main course of comedy wasn't severely underdone, Open Slather then has the cheek to plagiarise a YouTube video, without reference, as the closing section of the show, outlining the First World problems of dominoes customers.This is the awful judgement summarily displayed of what they subjected us to in the 45 minutes prior.

I don't want to be harsh, I am honestly holding back on how bad this series is looking like it will be. Australian Comedy is a tough gig, and another reviewer I read recently is correct, there is not enough edge to today's Aussie scene of comedy and that isn't going to change here.

What's even more horrifying is the seemingly manufactured tweets running around where people laud the opening episode as 'hilarious' etc. They are either friends/relatives, or have just come out of jail after a long stint.

And one more thing to avoid? Crikey's Ben Neutze, read his review of Open Slather and if you don't want to punch him in the face and shake him until he drops for writing such an inaccurate summary, then I offer myself, because maybe I am the one completely out of touch with Australian comedy.

If Open Slather is the benchmark, then I don't want to be in touching distant of it again anyway.
