Is Jam Chris Morris' finest work?
YES YES YES YES YES YES!!!!!!!
WITH AN ASTONISHING SOD APE :)
quite like to se him do more with Cahrlie Brooker though... or Victor Lewis Smith... Nathan Barley was rather good :)
and accuses Morris of stealing his style, which would certainly spice up any collaboration.
The best Morris is TDT, which has become incredibly underrated in that it's only ever talked about in the meedja as The Show That Spawned Alan Partridge when he's probably the least interesting thing in it.
my favourite quote ever
forgot how great jam was. will have to rewatch the DVDs soon.
Clearly he didn't."
It was a huge mistake to work with Charlie Brooker, someone influenced by Morris' own work. It led to a sort of canibalised bitterness, and not much funny. It has the same sort of audience as The Mighty Boosh, a novelty kids show for people who want to fit in and is just wrong.
Jam is good. Geefe columns are my favourite, with TDT and BrassEye close behind.
"Would you settle for 25 sessions with someone else?"
"Give me all the money in the register. I have a gun in my stomach and it's pointed at you."
"Ma na ma nah! Do do do do do! Mah nah mah nah!
a lot of people hated it, and i cant see why... and i wouldnt compare it to mighty booshes 'novelty audience' at all, those types are the ones who didnt understand it... Terrorists are gay? yes, that one bit summed up how thick todays youth are in one :)
Read that that was true back in the day, but after he gave Day Today great reviews, it appeared he'd made his peace... they both have great comic minds, so it makes sense they should collaborate.
It's so great.
