Angry Boys

11 Aug

Angry Boys, the uncomfortable comedy created, written and starring the undeniably genius Chris Lilley ended on Tuesday night here in the UK. I am a massive fan of Chris Lilley’s previous work such as Summer Heights High and We Can Be Heroes. His comedy can be at times uncomfortable and he has not been afraid to cross the line in previous works not in Angry Boys. His comedy seems to prove a point about modern culture or society and it’s an interesting view that stirs the pot, generally one that I agree with.

I cannot recommend this show enough and if you haven’t seen any of his other stuff check it out now. If you’re in the UK all the episodes of Angry Boys are still on BBC iPlayer. There are too many one-liners from characters such as S.mouse (black rapper living in LA) and Jen Okazaki (pushy Japanese mother with a skating prodigy for a son) to write down here.

If you’ve already seen it what do you think? I know a lot of people feel differently but I think this is superb! Leave a comment below!

    Love Angry Boys, but have to say I think Summer Heights High is just that bit funnier!!

      I think that both shows are insanely funny! Both make me crack up with laughter. Have you seen We Can Be Heroes or as it’s called here in the UK The Nominees? It’s so good!

      Thanks for the like and comment and sub!

        No I haven’t, I’ll look out for it! That’s ok, thanks for mine!

        Not a problem!

        It’s so good! It has Daniel and Nathan from Angry Boys as well as Ja’mie from Summer Heights High. Unfortunately, it’s only 6 episodes 😦

    This show is either too brilliant for most minds or a feeble attempt at true comedy. I think you have this one wrong given you come from that side of the Pond.

      Thanks for the comment!

      I think Chris Lilley has a really specific type of humour that you either ‘get’ or don’t find funny at all; personally I love it but I can see why others wouldn’t!

      I see your view point and agree. Its one of those where not everyone will take to it. I found your BBC Series D…Abbey in same vein whereas my partner loved it (she is from Brighton!) Keep it up

        Thank you!

        I love Downton! Can’t wait for the new series to start :D. Period drama is one of those things that people either like or don’t, personally I love it! Give it another go though, I don’t know how people can’t love it! That’s just me though!
