Him & Her - Comedy Is Subjective

So the new Russell Tovey comedy Him & Her made is debut on BBC Three on Monday night...but it wasn't funny...or more to the point, the wife and I didn't find it funny.

Smutty humor was a big hit in the nineties, not now. Smutty humor now is just childish.

Things I didn't find funny:

- Opening discussion about blow jobs.

- The constant mention of sex.

- The word FUCK.

- Toilet paper under the foreskin.

- Sniffing said bit of toilet paper.

- Women doing stinky bowl movements on the toilet.

- Women leaving stinky bowl movements in toilet and not flushing.

- Jumping around like a girl when coming across a spider.

- Eating pubes on toast.

- Eating toast in bed and dropping crumbs.

- Pissing in a hand basin.

The only thing the show had going for it was the uncomfortably annoying neighbour and Russell. I love Russell Tovey, he's brilliant in everything he does, but even he can't save something so unfunny as Him & Her, or can he?

If you want to know how to do smut well, then see Two Pints Of Larger And A Packet Of Crisps. It just goes to show comedy is subjective.

I have erased it off my Sky+ recording schedule

(on the recommendation of Russell himself I have now reinstated it).


Dom Carver conversation on Twitter with Russell Tovey:
