Amongst the best of British.,
This review is from: Brass Eye Series and Special [DVD]  (DVD)
When people harp about the best of British comedy, there is the inevitable chorus line of; Fawlty Towers, Morecambe & Wise and The two Ronnies. Fair enough. But no one ever has a mention for the more controversial of comics, like Chris Morris.
Let's give him his due credit, the man may not be a genius, but he does do a decent impression of one. Anyone who can get Rolf Harris to go on TV claiming that a designer drug called 'cake' affects a part of the brain called the "Shatners Bassoon," or can convince a bunch of C-list celbrities to help in a campaign where a west Indian elephant has her head stuck up her backside and is starting to digest herself must be made of finer stuff than you or I.
Brass Eye may not always be in the best of taste,(I won't mention the ill recieved 'paedophile' episode that caused several papers to brand Morris as Satan) but it is always hilarious, sometimes thought provoking and it shows us just how ridiculous this countries Media really is.
I can't recommend this Dvd enough, if you don't already own it, buy it now, and if you do already own it, buy another copy and give it someone as a present.
