Product Description

In 2004 a fine-art graduate from Bedford, near London, met a law principal from Chicago. Together they produced one of the most stunning, best-kept secrets in British comedy.

Matt Berry and Rich Fulcher (from the The Mighty Boosh) star as two hangmen. The pair spend their days hanging condemned souls for cash, chasing women and sitting in their rather posh gentleman's club sipping whiskey.

Snuff Box was only shown once, in early 2006 and couldn't air until 11pm because of the nature of the material. In spite of this, word spread and the cult was born.

Synopsis
Surreal comedy sketch show from Rich Fulcher and Matt Berry, better known for their outrageous roles in The Mighty Boosh. Features original music written and composed by Berry.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best comedy shows for years 15 Dec 2008
Format:DVD
Snuff Box is the brain child of Rich Fulcher and Matt Berry, who will be familiar to anyone who has seen The Mighty Boosh. Shown back in 2006 on BBC3, this surreal mix of sitcom and sketch show somehow escaped the mainstream. It's a real crying shame as it's without doubt one of the best comedy shows of the last few years, if not of all time. If you are a fan of surreal and dark comedy you will find this programme fantastic.

Why BBC3 seem happy to show endless repeats of banal shows like Little Britain and Two Pints of Lager, etc when they've got a jewel like this in their archives I really don't know. Maybe it's so anyone who likes it has to go out and buy it on DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure brilliance! 25 Aug 2008
Format:DVD
I bought this DVD due to my interest in the Boosh, and I have to say it's the best DVD I've bought in ages! Absolutely fantastic!

Very original, dark humour, and Matt Berry and Rich Fulcher make a great double act. Lots of great catchphrases and interlocking sketches, and some very strange characters! Me and my sister have watched it over and over, and even took it on holiday with us! Pure original brilliance!

But as other reviews have said, it is definately not family viewing.

5.0 out of 5 stars snuff it up baby 11 Mar 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
this is not going to appeal to anyone who is a mainstream follower with regards to humour but if you like your funny bone gently carressed and can laugh noiselessly this is the kiddy for you

5.0 out of 5 stars Original Comedy 21 Mar 2008
Format:DVD
This is one of the best comedy series ever to have been written. It is surreal, dark, imaginative, and very, very funny. If you missed it on BBC3 then you have missed out thousands of yet-to-be catchphrases, quirky visits to the past, Rich Fulcher's constant barrage of filth and the general debauched rantings of 2 madmen let loose with your money. Cannot wait.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dark, opaque, entertaining. 25 Mar 2011
Format:DVD
As an American I'm not sure I understand all the humor here, but the surreal humor does make me laugh quite a bit. The music, as many have mentioned, is classic. At this price, you can't afford not to own this. Whisky!

5.0 out of 5 stars A flash of brilliance 8 Sep 2009
Format:DVD
Having only six episodes, Snuff Box never has a chance to outstay its welcome, it ends right when it should. It is captivating, bizarre , foul, and utterly charming. The music (one song played in several styles) is excellent and will be caught in your head for some time.

1.0 out of 5 stars Just unwatchable 8 July 2014
By dregj
Format:DVD
Just unwatchable
Strange songs
profoundly odd sketches
and general bizarreness that could be overlooked if the show was any good
This is not funny at all
watch toast of london instead of this failed experiment
A short review for something not worth wasting time hating

1.0 out of 5 stars Marmite 3 July 2014
By elcep
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Strange one this. Like many I'm a big fan of Matt Berry, love Garth Marenghi's Darkplace and Toast for example. Love other quoted shows in these reviews such as IT Crowd, Spaced and Black Books. .
So when it popped up in my Amazon recommendations (along with the Mighty Boosh) and I read the reviews, I thought, I must have it.
So one evening myself and several friends after a few beers and a couple of Dark Place episodes as warm up, chucked this on.
Two and half episodes later, removed the DVD and it's not been seen since.

A stone cold silence greeted every excruciating minute of this. Each to their own and all that and I fully understand some people adore this show. I feel jealous that I'm missing out on something, but I just don't see it.
I found it dreadful beyond words. Appalling and simply unfunny.

So if you're a fan of Matt and this on your recommendations, perhaps try and catch a glimpse of this elsewhere before committing.
Clearly this is an extreme example of love it or hate it

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious
A must watch if you're a 'modern day' Matt Berry fan. A bit retro, a bit surreal but has made me laugh out loud and spend half an hour with tears in the eyes!!

4.0 out of 5 stars A hidden gem
Snuff Box brings together Matt Berry and Rich Fuller in a fantastic series. Some stand out moments, especially when Matt thinks he's pulled a girl!

5.0 out of 5 stars Monty Python on steroids
This is what I imagine Monty Python would make, were they active today.
Biting, sarcastic, a heavy dose of madness.

Just love it :-)

Bought this then I had a physical copy that I could force on other people. One of the best TV shows ever made.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant comedy
Matt Berry is hilarious and this quirky gem should be in every Berry fan's collection. One can get a taster of Snuff Box from YouTube...my boyfriend...

I really liked it. Lots of imagination, cool music, great characters. Matt Berry and Rich Fulcher are always disgustingly funny

5.0 out of 5 stars A jem!
If you like The Mighty Boosh, Monty python, Nightingales, Spaced or Black Books then this is probably for you, buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars hard to put a title for this one
sheer genius.unusual and strange and floats in that strange limbo that combines comedy and drama but has a bias towards some surrealist rambling, non-sequential dream. Read more
