In Case You Missed It

Ben Wyatt is the resident nerd on NBC’s Parks & Recreation. ┬áThis week he told us why Game of Thrones couldn’t get cancelled, and then he bought a Batman costume. It was pretty much the coolest thing he’s done so far.

Snuff Box Finally Hits the US

Rich Fulcher & Matt Berry

Are you ready to have your world rocked by comedy? If you answered yes, I’ve got just the show for you. In 2006 the UK aired one of the most bizarre shows ever put on tape. It’s called Snuff Box and stars Matt Berry (IT Crowd, Mighty Boosh) and Rich Fulcher (Mighty Boosh), who play a hangman and the hangman’s assistant, respectively. The format is where it can get a little confusing. It’s a mix of sketches and story, but it’s not a straight sketch show or sitcom.

The first thing you should know about Snuff Box is that it’s not for everyone. The characters aren’t likable, the sketches are pretty vulgar, and sometimes you’ll wonder how any of this ever made it to air. This is definitely not a show to watch with your kids, or your parents, or the friends you don’t know too well. It could get weird.

Snuff Box is out on DVD in the US today for the first time, but it’s not available on Netflix, so how do you know if you’ll like it before you buy it? If you like the style of South Park, Stella or Mighty Boosh, you should check out Snuff Box.
