Do yourself a favor and ignore the previous review by some Brexiter. Morgana Robinson has been stealing scenes in cutting edge UK comedy like "Toast of London" and "Vic and Bob" for some time now, and "Agency" is her best work yet. You'd have to be UKIP not to appreciate her spot-on impressions of B, C, and D-list Brit celebs, or understand the overall social commentary. No, it's not as obvious and terrible as Ricky Gervais making fun of disabled people, so it's not surprising the previous reviewer didn't quite get it. "Agency" isn't for people who think Peter Kay is the gold standard. It's for people who can't stand people who think Peter Kay is the gold standard.
You don't even have to be up on UK celeb culture to enjoy this show. I had no idea who Danny Dyer, Natalie Cassidy, or Cheryl Cole were before watching the first episode, but it didn't matter at all, you know who these people are 10 seconds into Morgana Robinson's first bit. They are archetypes, found in every country and every culture, which is why this show travels so well across the pond.
Honestly, this is one of the best new shows I've seen in years, and it's reviews like Farage Jr.'s here that make me understand why England is in such a mess right now. Ignore this narrow-minded nonsense and treat yourself to one of the most talented, hilarious comedians the UK's produced in quite awhile. Here's hoping for a second series ASAP.
