Can't find anything funny, I'm afraid. Definitely a waste of thirty minutes.
3 February 2008 | by jjashfordSee all my reviews

Nothing to laugh at here. The new series seems to have sketches interspersed occasionally with real life situations (as with the traffic warden) that are just cringe worthy. The few jokes are based around ethnicity - even a distinctly unoriginal crack at Welsh accents. Compared with excellent real-life sitcoms like "Never Better" and "Lead Balloon", and even with other below par sketch shows like Peter Serafanowic's (which at least had one sketch that cracked me up), this programme is simply atrocious.

The content is questionable as to whether or not it is racist. I don't like to judge here. "Little Britain" is similar to "Little Miss Jocelyn" in that it is a sketch show with dubious or controversial content that I think is made forgivable by the fact that it is actually funny. Perhaps the dearth of stereotypes and bad accents in the latter programme would not be as noticeable if it was even mildly amusing.

I would advise anyone to avoid this programme like the plague. The programme is comical, but unfortunately not in the way its creators intended. Even if the acting was palatable and it had some original jokes, the programme concentrates on a small range of stereotypes none of which I have encountered in my daily life. If it must be broadcast, broadcast it on BBC London.
