Harry Hill’s TV Burp is easily the funniest thing on TV at the moment.
It’s both clever and also accessible on many different levels. I can imagine kids laughing at much of it, while the self-referential gags (a trademark of Harry Hill, anyway) elevate it to a different plane.
The true measure of the show can be seen by the fact that he regularly gets other TV celebs to appear on the show, usually sending themselves up – no mean feat, let’s face it.
I know Saturday night is primetime scheduling, but I can’t help feel it doesn’t get the appreciative audience there that it truly deserves.
Forget your Mitchell & Webb’s or Mighty Boosh’s of the programming landcsape, TV Burp is an unconfined joy from start to finish. If you haven’t watched it yet, set your Sky+ or make a date for Saturday evenings.
