For some reason i have been persevering with Man Stroke Woman for the past few weeks and now i realise that even though it does have Nathan Barley and The Moustached One Out Of Spaced in it, it isn't funny.
And i wonder...it just seems that most sketch shows recently are shit too. Like the standard is now to think up about half a dozen catch phrases, even fewer ideas and then do similar variations of them over six episodes. BAM! A series.
And so can anyone think of any other recent sketch shows that are actually good? All i can think of at the moment is:
Chewin' The Fat
Fast Show (mostly)
Smack The Pony (sometimes)
