Is this a reference to a sketch, or was the lampshade more entertaining?

A sketch.

I too am looking at my lampshades. They're all just the wrong shape though. I think a trip to IKEA is in order.

My friend introduced me to this show a few days ago and I think it's utterly hilarious. One of the best sketch shows I've seen for a few years.

Enjoying this show immensely courtesy of the iPlayer, shades of Big Train but is very much a refreshing individual vision. Love his surreal takes on lifes little annoyances.

Am I right that this is only shown North of Berwick?
If so anyone know why?
Have the BBC decided to cut the amount of hilarity in England and Wales?

It's a BBC Scotland show, made to fill one of the slots Scotland is given to show something different to the rest of the U.K. Because of that, it isn't automatically able to be shown in the rest of the country. It could be, but for some reason the different departments haven't got it together to do so. (That's the jist of what I read somewhere else, anyway)

According to the BBC listings the Scots are deprived of Never Mind the Buzzcocks as a result. How do they survive.

If the English ever find out that there is more to comedy than panel shows then they'll do what they always do when they find out they are being cheated. Sigh for a few seconds and stare at their 'Keep Calm and Carry On' posters.

I think they could put together a one-off compilation show for the rest of the UK.

Like most sketch shows I find it hits and miss but when it works its very, very funny.

He started out on YouTube, so its good to know that route can work. Sadly the show looks like the only reason it is made is because its made for peanuts.

The Falconhoof sketch in Episode 3.3 is four ways brilliant, one of the funniest sketches I've seen all year. Great show.
