3.0 out of 5 stars ignore the obvious, 27 Oct 2005
Obviously the big names (Partridge, Gervais, Little Britain)phone in their performances, Rob Brydon just isnt funny outside of character comedy (of which hes one of the best by the way) But lesser known acts such as the charming Noel Fielding (AKA Vince Noir from The Mighty Boosh)or the mighty Otis Lee Crenshaw prove that variety is the spice of life and for every world beating comedy show theirs a cult hero to maintain equilibriam...

Well if you ask me it's all getting a bit silly this garage rock thing!

Maybe the bad language is a bit tacked on for extra shock value but it doesnt ruin things... a hot new prospect
