Storyline

The series began screening shortly after the similar sketch comedy program Fast Forward (from which Full Frontal derived) ended. Full Frontal retained the same general format of Fast Forward. It was formatted in a way such as to create the effect of someone continuously channel surfing; after the punchline of each sketch, it would abruptly switch to the next as if the viewer had switched channels.

User Reviews

can you say "Fast Forward?"
3 December 2001 | by funkie_sparkelsSee all my reviews

I'm sorry, even though Full Frontal was one of the funniest shows on television, all it really did was copy what Fast Forward was doing about 5 years or so earlier. Fast Forward did it better too. So, nothing really original here. It was still funny though.
