Such a simple idea, but done perfectly - all by the same guy. The animated/pictorial representations on the screen make what you're hearing twice as funny, and there's so much subtle stuff there you can spot stuff on the second or third viewing you had previously missed. The second series isn't quite as good as the first, but that's only a testament to the high benchmark the first set. Add this doovde to your collectionings now. Thank you and goodnight.

Fone Jacker is one man and his phone with 10 different voices/accents and he has created some brilliant characters: Terry Tibbs used Car salesman- "Much Love"
And the hilarious Nigerian George Agdgdgwngo who greets men with "Good Afertnoon Madame", Goooood Afternoon Madam indeed, collect your Ugandan Dollars when you give your bank Account number to George...
You are Mr...Smith?
"Is that your sort code?"
and the Internet service Providings chap - "You Going To Complainings Saying I Dont Speak English Properiing"
"Would You Be Interested In Swiching Your Internet Service Providings To A Provider That Provides A Faster Service Of Internet Service Providings Than Your Current Providings."
Donald Donaldson is perverted and not funny. The Mouse is silly and unfunny. Mr Doovde, a camel-riding lover of electrical goods who talks in bewlidering abbreviations is amusing because he gets a fantastic reaction from the fone victims. Mr. Miggins, the old man who just can't come to grips with the modern world is unfunny.
So thats it folks there is not much more you can do with a telephone and a funny accent. Series 1 is much better then series 2, ergo series 2 is quite poor and repetitve.
