Comedy Nation   S01E05 (1998) [VHSRip(XviD)] preview 0

I have found, so far, 4 (no 5!) episodes of this show that broadcast in 1998. This fifth episode is A COMPLETE EPISODE.

COMEDY NATION - BBC2 (1998 - 1999)

Comedy Nation was a surreal BBC2 sketch show, described at the time of broadcast as an "experimental comedy sketch show". The brief was basically to allow newcomers to appear on telly, try out their crazy ideas, and see what might come of it. In between the disparate and unlinked sketches was a bass-heavy guitar sting separating the different performers. Most characters recurred through the series, and some jokes, like Jason Byrnes' visual puns, appeared more than once in the same episode. Sketches ran for as little as a couple of shouting seconds or ran, like The Pod appearances, for up to five minutes. There were also computer animations, like the 'Des and Alan' sketch based on Des Lynam and Alan Hansen ("I wine 'em, I dine 'em, I Des Lynam") and The Many Deaths Of Norman Spittal - which ran before the many deaths of South Park's Kenny made recurring cartoon death acceptable to all. The show tended to be heavily hit or miss, but due to the speed with which things moved, there tended to always be something good coming up at any given time. Anyone who is now anyone in British television comedy seem to have cut their teeth in this show. Performers included Sacha Baron-Cohen (Ali G), Rhona Cameron, Ronni Ancona, Ricky Grover, James Bachman and The Divine David in the first series, and Sally Philips, Ben Moore, Simon Evans, Kevin Eldon, Julian Barratt, Tim Hope, Waen Shepherd, Simon Munnery (as The League Against Tedium), David Mitchell and Robert Webb in the second series. Julian Barratt and Tim Hope appeared together in sketches revolving around The Pod, and included song performances and some special animated sequences from Tim Hope.

Comments from IMDB: [url]http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0143033/[/url]

I can understand why many people would be bewildered and possibly almost frightened by this sort of comedy; it was raw and it was completely uncompromising.

Comedy Nation was a platform for new talent to break into television, it was a very jumbled sketch show with many writers and performers adding pieces; it was completely un-linked and totally unrefined. Yes there were some dodgy pieces, but there was also a great deal of genius on show; it seems everybody currently producing alternative British television comedy had a part in this show and it served very well as a stepping stone for some of the best acts on TV. The likes of Kevin Eldon, Julia Davis, Peter Serafinowicz, David Mitchell, Robert Webb and Johnny Vegas; to name a few.

The most acessible character from COMEDY NATION is Bulla played by Ricky Grover . Bulla is based upon a real life British prisoner called Charles Bronsan who`s widely regarded as the hardest man in the British penal system. Bulla`s catch phrase " I`m a lovely guy but I get a little bit naughty " did become something of a cult item in the late 1990s.

Comedy Nation contained the kind of sketches that left you stunned; The Divine David, a kind of beat up, bitter transvestite, Simon Munnery's 'league against tedium', and of course, the Gaa Haa clown, the embodiment of insanity. I suppose you either like it or you don't, but if you don't, I think you're really missing out.
