I'm amazed this show hasn't been snapped up outside of sweaty sockland. Limmy has restored my faith in sketch shows 100%. I know people talk about the language thing, but really? By age 20 surely most people in england would have met a glaswegian? Same language FFS. I can imagine the meetings at BBC HQ playing his tapes to top brass and them being like "Yes he's a very animated chap isn't he, but can't understand a word he's saying, so our viewers won't either."
F**k UP! Is all I have to say to that. It's not the best thing I've seen but wipes it's arse all over most of the formulaic rubbish that gets commissioned on english telly. It's as dark in places as it is ridiculous and doesnt' rely on generic catch-all greetings card sketches that everyone will 'get'. Maybe the benefit of smaller networks like bbc scotland is that they can take more risks and not have to please such a wide audience so things like this can get made.
Out of interest, I got into limmy through friends sending me shit. ( his vines 1-300 on YT is one of the weirdest but laugh out loud and yet angst ridden half hours I have ever decided to watch repeatedly over and over). I heard he was an internet legend before he got his shows commisioned. How deedee (get it) start? YouTube vids? I know he has a website, but there is not a huge amount of content.
Cheers, love you all inappropriately.
wow, I just noticed the word f**k in last post got a couple of stars added to it?!?!
I wonder what happens when I say the word c**t?
interesting. The word c**t also gets two star added.
How about pissflaps?
Interesting. Curiouser and curiouser.
