Always annoyed how theatrical screenings of rad British TV are super-difficult to figure out, rights-wise? WE HEAR YOU. We’ve managed to save from that void one of the best-kept secrets in all of British comedy: SNUFF BOX.
We are stoked to present this maverick anti-sitcom written by / starring Matt Berry (The IT Crowd, Garth Marenghi’s Dark Place) and American comedian Rich Fulcher (The Mighty Boosh, The Sarah Silverman Program). SNUFF BOX has been described by AV Club as “too dark for TV, too smart for YouTube” -- a legacy instantly cemented when the BBC chose to air it only a single time.
This depraved anti-sitcom loosely centers around a pair of jovial hangmen and is stuffed with twisted sketch comedy a la Monty Python: bad first dates, time travel, sex, whiskey, awkward moments, random beatings, snappy musical numbers, one very long white hall, rampant swearing and other pleasures.
