Brain Candy

British comedy figure Steve Coogan is one of the team behind this collection of 14 short episodes (around 13 minutes each) on various themes, directed by Roger Pomphrey. The episodes are: 1. Relationships; 2. Crime; 3. Work; 4. Parents; 5. Families; 6. Shopping; 7. Sex; 8. Animals; 9. Weekends & Weather; 10. Exercise; 11. Travel; 12. Nightlife; 13. Food; and 14. Surreal.

Some of the comedians featured are Noel Fielding, Jimmy Carr, Alan Carr, Gina Yashmere and Alex Zane. It is essentially a chance for the talent to speak down the barrel of the camera, stand-up style. The fast editing and camera work keep the pace cracking. I like the idea of themes because otherwise, three hours of amorphous comedy could have been droning.

It will soon be a decade old, but I didnít find the jokes dated. While the first to admit to never having been to stand up, and much preferring scripted comedy (30 Rock or Curb Your Enthusiasm come to mind), I found Brain Candy quite viewable. These guys and girls think quick and do some amazing tricks with words and language. Itís funny in parts and engaging. All the segments are shot in Britain and most the comedians are British. This doesnít mean viewers in Australia wonít relate.

Sound and video are TV quality and there are no special featuresóI doubt thereídíve been room on the disc!
