Fun is the name of the game
18 September 2013 | by jgcorreaSee all my reviews

'Pirate TV' was inspired by sketch comedy shows such as Saturday Night Live and Monty Python's Flying Circus plus a no-nonsense approach mixing elements of Brazilian culture such as football, politics, pop culture, soaps, economics and celebrities. The premise was a TV studio being invaded by pirates who took over the programming department and put a tape on the air with some "unusual" programming. The idea of a fresh new comedy style settled among the audience, who was very accustomed to the sketch comedy style from vaudeville and old- time programs such as Faça Humor Não Faça a Guerra & Planeta dos Homens, former cultural phenomena. The program has been released on DVD. Some of its videos are also available through YouTube.
