"Brilliant comedy - done the way it should be!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Good satire, rather than all this new populist comedy out now – this is real comedy! A great collection of alternative comedy from the '80's (and later). Very clear scripts.

"Brit Comedy Rules" Purchased on Mighty Ape

British comedy is the best comedy – bar none. Don't be fooled with American retreads – this is given my stamp of approval for those indulging in the next wave (80's) of prime British Comedy!

"BAD NEWS!!!!!"
5 stars"

Fantastic! Bought this a few years ago and still go back to it regularly. Some of the best British comedy ever with classics such as ‘Five go mad in Dorset’, ‘Fistful of travelers cheques’ ‘Bad News’, More Bad News' and the brilliant full length movie 'Supergrass"! Its Worth every penny!!! 9 Discs of comedy gold that lasts over 26 hours!!!

Description

Anarchic humour at it's best!

The ground-shaking impact of The Comic Strip's anarchic humour rattled the televisions of the 1980s, and when the smoke cleared they left a gaping crater that lesser comics are still falling into today. Their clever parodies of film, tv, music and pop culture are unequaled in creativity and execution.

Started by a troupe of now well-established comedy actors (most notably Adrian Edmondson, Dawn French, Rik Mayall, and Jennifer Saunders), “The Comic Strip” offered audiences an alternative to the ‘safe’ humour of its day. The show left no taboo unturned–with shocking and often offensive portrayals of violence, sex, bestiality, and explicit drug use (not to mention all the swearing and puerile fart-gags). But despite the controversy–or perhaps because of it–“The Comic Strip” drew a cult following for its anti-establishment views, which resonated well with younger generations.

Now, for the first time all 39 rarely seen episodes of The Comic Strip Presents, totalling over 26 hours, are collected in this 9 DVD boxset, bursting with an array of extras.

Special Features:

  • The original Comic Strip Live at London's Raymond Revue Bar
  • First Laugh On Four Documentaries
  • The Comic Strip – A Retrospective
