Garth Merenghi's Darkplace if they ever repeat it. That was brilliant, done crap 80's stylee, but still good


(Matt Holness and Richard Ayoade are doing a new dark comedy called "deano's After Dark" which sounds muchos fun. They are going to be showcasing it every monday starting next week at riverside studios' i am hoping to go on the 25th, just going to see if anyone can go and what day.)

Monkey Dust was dark, but I didn't watch it enough, really.

I'd say most chris morriss stuff is dark, but I'm getting confused now as to what you mean by dark comedy.

I mean finding humour in death and disease and other things not usually used to entertain.

It depends what you mean by dark humour really because there are lots of different ways of being dark. Like LoG, Nighty Night and One Foot in the Grave are all darkly comical but in very different ways.

'How Do You Want Me?' was dark in a very subtle way. Great show that, very much underrated and sadly forgotten. :cry:

I always thought Brass Eye was a very dark comedy. It either makes you gaffaw like an idiot or offends the crapp out of you.

I loved the first series of Moneky Dust but went off it a bit when the 2nd one came on.

I forgot Jam (Jaaaaaam)! That's very dark indeed.

I like Monkey Dust. Hehe, Nelson Bonjela. (I'm easily amused.)

Brass Eye was fantastic, it didn't just "cross the line", it bounded over it gleefully for about four miles before realising it had crossed the line at all! And I personally thought the paedophile one was hilarious and VERY well observed, there's no way people should've been so offended.
