David Hasselhoff is dead?

Max explains how The Hoff is in financial trouble. He has only earned £4.27 in Baywatch repeat fees. Thus Max has decided to fake the death of the star.

Featuring: David Hasselhoff (Hoff), Fergus Craig (Max Coleman), Ella Smith (Harriet Fitzgerald), Asim Chaudhry (Terry Patel) & John Snow.

Danny doesn't believe Hoff is dead

Max has helped fake the death of David Hasselhoff. But Danny who trains the star doesn't think The Hoff is dead.

Featuring: Fergus Craig (Max Coleman) & Brett Goldstein (Danny Jones).


Series two of the workmanlike self-satire continues to walk through all the tropes that made mockumentaries cool 10 years ago. David Hasselhoff plays himself as a daringly plausible caricature, with his disastrous career marshalled by Thick of It spinners, who give Office-style interviews commentating on the action. Tonight, low earnings cause the Hoff to fake his own death. It's efficient, but every line is the most agonising thing comedy can be: nearly funny.

Jack Seale, The Guardian, 6th May 2016

Preview: Hoff the Record Series 2

The same fundamental problem with the series remains. Funny as it may be, by not being sure if it is a sitcom or a mockumentary, Hoff The Record occasionally wobbles from side to side, never quite nailing either format.
