The Morgana Show is a character-based sketch show starring comedic talent Morgana Robinson, Terry Mynott and Tom Davis. The fast-paced programme, first aired on Channel 4 in November/December 2010, features Morgana's take on celebrities such as Cheryl Cole, Dannii Minogue, Fearne Cotton, Boris Johnson and Lady Gaga, alongside her own creations, which include past-her-prime Hollywood siren Madolynn, funeral directors Joyce and Barry and loveable teenager Gilbert who is making a show for the internet with the not-so-expert help of his granddad.
The DVD features the five episodes from the series alongside a never-before-seen "Making of" feature and a blooper reel.

the 3 characters are all doing their bit & you have to watch 3 times so you can focus on each of the 3. Morgana has got to be the funniest & smartest comedy actor around at the moment, her character "Gilbert" is pure genius. Brilliant, more stuff like this please.
Gilbert does seem to steal the show, as the comedy element of this character is hilarious on so many levels. Reminds me when channel 4 etc used to let ordinary, everyday people make their own documentaries to put on tv. Only Gilbert is no ordinary, everyday person.
Some other sketches are just entertaining, while the old men sitting around in the red, soldier uniforms, is the low point of each episode and really needs to be discarded in any future series, as for me, it is not even entertaining.
Can't wait to see more from Morgana, as i find her to be the funniest thing on tv since Catherine Tate, if not funnier. This makes me laugh with every episode of this 1st series. Like another reviewer has stated, i also hope theres a second series on the way as it would be a real shame not to see more from such a talented comedienne.
Hope she gets another series, we've watched this one at least 3 times each ep & it still makes us laugh.
LIIIIKE EACH OTHER !!! =oD
Certainly, she has a finite set of characters you will see popping up in most episodes, but the writing is clever and fresh for practically everything. I disagree with the first reviewer who doesn't like her Boris Johnson at prep school character. She has him absolutely spot on. You can tell that her Boris will end up being London's Boris in later life. My wife almost couldn't believe that all the characters are just her. The makeup and the way she sets her face and moves her body are unique for each one. Not certain if BAFTA gives awards for being frightfully clever, but she deserves one.
Morgana is a lot of fun when she is playing against herself in some sketches, and can even make you feel sorrow and pain when she does Gilbert, the nerdy, lonely little boy trying to do videos with his grand dad as the inattentive cameraman (you never see "Grand Dad"). The only character I have a small desire to see disappear in any future series is the brash, gap-toothed, braggart, obnoxious male played (I'm pretty sure) by writer/producer/co-star James de Frond. At least he gets his in the end.
In recent times I have grown a bit weary of a lot of this type of programme, but Morgana brings the sketch programme new life and great energy and ingenuity.Read more ›
Her impersonation of Fern Cotton is spot on (win-win for me) but the runaway success of this whole series is Gilbert who stars in his very own show and 'The Gilbert Show' will forever be on my list of Top 10 TV comedy classics.
Gilbert uses a video camera to record his own show but does so on previously used video tapes so you get to see glimpses of him on previous days out. There are so many comedy moments and each of them genuinely has me laughing out loud. I absolutely love this character. "Grandad!".
If you're a Morgana fan or want a taste of what this DVD has to offer, check out the clips of her from the 'TNT Show' where Gilbert played an absolutely amazing spoof on unsusecting celebrities with 'Gilbert's Special Report' - search on 4OD/Youtube and gasp in disbelief! Hilarious.
Needless to say I can absolutely recommend this DVD. If you need a good belly laugh, Morgana/Gilbert's your man!
