Link? :0)

I remember her videos on the old BBC Comedy Soup website in about 2006, she was very funny. I nearly asked her if she'd do voices for one of my animations but I bottled it. Stupid Pie.

She has one character on the trailer which look too much like Bubbles from Trailer Park Boys for my liking. Even the mannerisms in the advert.

That Morgana pic isn't the best example, but it seems to be the only one online of that charcter so far.

Ohhhh.
I think I've seen that character doing interviews on some crappy E4 thing.

Basically, interviewing baffled famous people as a slightly retarded woman/boy.

The film crew were also pretending to be retarded. I recall one of the writers commenting that the only reason that this had not caused an outrage was that no-one was actually watching.

I find a lot of things funny, really. But these trailers ree-ee-ee-ally bother me. Does anyone else feel like they are laughing at people with mental health issues, that bit with the kid showing his dances especially? Makes me feel vaguely uncomfortable everytime it's on. Maybe it is funny, but I can't let myself laugh at it because it just feels wrong. (Probably taking it all far too seriously and out of context, I know.) I never really post online, but I had to say something about this.

Well, I hate* to judge anything by a single 30 second trailer, but as trailers are designed to entice you by offering a flavour of the show, it looks pretty dreadful. Hard to know if that character is just going to be a witless pastiche of the intellectually challenged, but if so then the show will most likely die a quick death anyway.

(*when I say "hate" I course mean, "quite enjoy")

Oh, and welcome, Gwendolyn. Wave

I at first thought that she was from that crappy 'Beehive' sketchshow - it seemed to share the same style of so called humour.
