That's Cricket

Last week I posted a few videos by David Mitchell. Like most comedians he has a comedy partner that he does things with. Including sketch shows and sitcoms. The sitcom, called Peep Show, is incredibly funny. But that's not why I'm here. I'm here with their sketches. I miss their sketch show, and I don't think they've done anything together in a while actually. They made a sketch about a cricket underdog movie that I would totally watch. There are plenty of underdog movies, but cricket is an untapped market.



One of their regular sketches that happened a fair number of times was the crime fighting duo BMX Bandit and Angel Summoner. I always enjoyed these ones, so I'm going to include one, just because I can.



Lastly, one of their most well known sketches, the game show even they probably didn't know the rules to. That's Numberwang! These ones never really made any sense and it's probably better not to try and work them out.

  1. That cricket video cracked me up man and honestly I don't want to pretend that it isn't true. Thanks for sharing these man, they've brightened up a dubiously strange morning for me, it's been a weird one.

  3. Peep Show is an excellent show, though I always found Mitchell and Webb Look a bit hit and miss. Their Sir Digby Chicken Caesar sketch always cracked me up, though.

  4. This David Mitchell guy is friggin' awesome! Why don't we have American comdedians this funny?? Well, it seems being Angel Summoner's sidekick ends up with the same result as being Dirty Harry's sidekick. You end up dead (but perhaps for very different reasons).

  5. These guys are truly funny. The Spawn knows all the bits and used to quote them 'round the house. The kids here in the States don't know these guys I don't think. Too bad as they're really missing out.

  6. I've got the feeling I missed something in the first vid... maybe that's because I don't know shit about cricket.

  7. I don't really get the first two videos, but the last one, Numberwang...well, I don't get that one either, but I love it. Reminds me of the few decent sketches from Mad Tv.
