Comedy is cancelled. Or rather, comedy that doesn't "reflect the times" is cancelled, which in practice is the same thing. According to the BBC, Little Britain will no longer be available on iPlayer because "times have changed". Netflix has followed suit, adding Matt Lucas and David Walliams' other recent hit, Come Fly with Me, as well as The League Of Gentlemen to the banned list for good measure.Tim Dawson, The Telegraph, 11th June 2020
Four series, four long series, four laughter free long series, four laughter free immature series that Coming of Age has been on BBC3.
I can only imagine the show's viewers have the intellect of a dead weasel, or are the Daffy Ducky tie-wearing wankers who think they're the office funnymen; those who spend £100 on their costume for Red Nose Day.
BBC3 has long been a graveyard for morons' comedy. It's like the Beeb has given up on it, throwing it out to the brain dead teenagers who sit on swivel chairs in White City to have their fun with. Truly no words will ever describe how monumentally bad this show is. I'll try: it's worse than Two Pints, and that got seven series .... or was it six? Too many is my point.
If there is literally anything else to do in the entire world, do it over watching Coming of Age.Tom Eagles, Geeks.co.uk, 25th February 2011
As regular fans of the show will know, it is recorded in front of a live studio audience and so we asked the writer Tim Dawson to share a little bit about the last stages of the production process.Tim Dawson, BBC, 12th January 2011
I've been told by the wonderful folks at the BBC that there have been a silly amount of requests for the lyrics to DK's raps.Joe Tracini, BBC Comedy, 1st March 2010
The idea for Coming of Age came to me when I was eighteen and trying to find a way out of doing more exams. I've always loved sitcom and I'd always wondered why there wasn't a proper sitcom about teenage life, so one weekend I sat down, wrote a script and sent it to the BBC.Tim Dawson, BBC Comedy, 12th January 2010
Hello all! So, it is my sad duty to tell you that filming of Coming of Age series two has come to an end. We had highs and lows, laughter and tears, singing and dancing, sexual innuendo and just plain dirty talking. Twas a wonderful few months. Some good news coming at you though, it will be on your screens early 2010, WOOHOO!Joe Tracini, BBC, 27th October 2009
Hey! I believe we did something that hasn't been done before this week... we filmed the first 60 scene sitcom episode in front of a live studio audience!Joe Tracini, BBC Comedy, 1st September 2009
