You know the type - comedy shows where the characters talk directly to the camera, popularized by 'The Office'. Best not to think who exactly the documentary is being made for, who funded it, etc. Just suspend, and enjoy.
Documentaries, newscasting, and children's educational programming are just a few of the non-scripted TV genres that get skewered in this list of spot-on parodies. Thanks FilmFish, Thilmfish (come on, 'Look Around You' fans).
Along with Tim Heidecker, Chris Morris is FilmFish founders’ Alex and Phil’s all time comedy hero. From his early days causing chaos on British radio to the sensational Four Lions and everything in between. Hats off to you Mr. Morris, Brass Eye is quite simply the funniest show ever made. This list features all of Morris’ TV work as well as similar shows from the whole Day Today/Iannucci gang. Please never stop, Chris!
Nobody does absurdism like the Brits, and no Brits do absurdism like the chaps on this list: from 'Mighty Boosh' to 'Jam', prepare your mind to enter a dark and twisted place (and we're not talking about the scenes shot in Milton Keynes).
