Genius!
16 April 2001 | by Chris-448See all my reviews

This is probably one of the funniest TV shows ever made. Trigger Happy TV, fronted by the irrepressible Dom Joly, is a programme based loosely on Candid Camera. The show is a series of sketches that focus on those little irritating things in life (mobile phones, fishermen, traffic wardens) by blowing them out of all proportion. Trigger Happy is so irreverent, so insanely unique, that you're absolutely guaranteed to laugh. What's more, the whole thing is wrapped up by a delightful "sad-rock" soundtrack which, unlike canned laughter, makes you just laugh even harder. Look out for the park-bench secret agent, the educated punk, and the door-to-door Grim Reaper in particular! Fantastic.
