I’ve caught these short sketches a few times on Paramount Comedy and they regularly leave me in stitches - basically it’s a series of 1-minute shorts where a stereotypical Essex boy & girl express views on their everday lives in Shakespearean style verse. Extremely funny, if you like irony and fast word-play comedy (that might well be a British thing, I’m not sure) so I thought I’d share links to videos of them on Paramount’s site.

My particular favourites are Oh Glorious Chariot! (an ode to a Kevved-up  Vauxhall Astra) and The Miasma of Love, a treatise on the aftermath of Sunday lunch and brussel sprouts, but the whole series is linked there. Classic.
