TittyBangBang


The BBC can be bastards! They make programs with OUR money, put them online ever so briefly, then pull them off and SELL them to us as DVDs. So grab free online viewing of the latest comedy series whilst it's still available. TittyBangBang is a hilarious series of sketches featuring Debbie Chazen and the delicious Lucy Montgomery, who is another Julia Davis. The show is written by Jill Parker, who I've not heard of before. Characters include Maxine Bendix, whose body is collapsing under excessive cosmetic surgery ("Don't worry. It's just a little bit of seepage"); a completely hopeless ladies darts team; and an exhibitionist Italian cleaning lady working for the National Trust ("Don't look at me! I'm just waxing my legs... I'm shy.") Of course you can also watch it on BBC3 TV.

I agree KiRsTy - though I'm blowed if I know what you mean by PML.

I watched the last episode on line yesterday, and was sorry to see the present series come to an end.

Tittybangbang is awful. I struggled through the first programme without laughing once. It's purile drivel of the worst kind. OK it's targeting a minority audience, but surely they want to make it into double figures?

Please don't make a second series....give the money to the far more talented Catherine Tate..

Thank you

OH MY GOD......Have Some of u people got no sense of Humour?
TTBB Is one of the funniest things ive ever seen, granted some people dont like it, big deal, dont watch it, dont come online like other people ive read in threads slagging it off and petitioning to have it removed from the Television. SOME PEOPLE LIKE IT. This is the reason that programmes get cancelled. Because simple minded idiots complain thats its rubbish and then it gets taken off air and everyone is wondering "What happened to poor timmy Down The well?" because the "viewers" dont like watching anymore.. LONG LIVE TTBB AND HOPE THERES A SECOND< THIRD< FOURTH ..etc series

Well, it's just been recommissioned for a second series - which should make any lovers of quality comedy quake in their shoes. How BBC3 can justify spending our money on this utter rubbish is beyond me! It's just not funny - the writers have no idea how to structure a sketch, and the ideas are woefully under developed. Debbie Chazen should get back to the Smoking Room before she becomes too tarnished by this sh**e.

Roy said...

Well Mr Hiding-Behind-Anonymous, I can tell you that you're in a very small minority. This posting gets more hits from all over the world than soft Mick. And I for one say Whoopee! to a second series.

Don't look at me - I'm just ready to laugh my socks off!

I still can't get my head round some of the characters e.g. what the cup cake is the bloke who wants to wee on everyone all about?

Roy said...

Don Peacock is a layabout, a scrounger, and a sexual pervert - not to put it too finely. And he's a comic masterpiece. I could hardly believe that this was Lucy Montgomery first time I saw the show.

If he doesn't get to pee on the nurses or home help, there's always the dog. And the break dance finale says it all: "This is wierd shit!"

It certainly is.

Great to see positive reactions to TBB dominating a thread - I don't think that's happened before. But, given the amount of hostility, us TBB supporters should stick together, and we can do it here:

Great to see positive posts about TBB dominating a thread for a change. But, given the amount of hostility, with rumours about petitions against a second series (does anybody know if there is one?), us TBB supporters should stick together and we can do it here:

Just want to add that the bozos who are campaigning against it have about 66 other channels to choose from instead of trying to impose their will on us.

Bottom line, something like 4-500,000 people watched the first series and that's good enough for a second series on BBC3. It's immaterial whether everybody else is indifferent or hates it with a passion.

I don't know who's chaining these people up and forcing them to watch Tittybangbang, but someone should write to Amnesty International.

Actually, Mr Hiding-Behind-Anonymous does have a point. By saying "the ideas are woefully underdeveloped", he is inadvertently admitting that they have potential. And that's being addressed by the producers in the form of actively seeking new writers for the second series.

PML = Pissed myself laughing

Anna said...

Parts of Tittybangbang are awesome. Lucy Montgomery is just brilliant. There better be a 2nd series! Highlights are Don Peacock, Duck and chips family, bloke at garden centre "Don't Touch dangerous chemicals!", woman with surgery. Not so fond of darts team, naked sewing ladies, fighting people at museum etc
But am looking forward to 2nd series and dvd release (I hope) of first. Lucy Montgomery is just superb and also Tony Way

Roy said...

I agree with most of your choices Anna.

Tittybangbang is possibly the unfunniest pile of a dog's dinner, ever to be broadcast.

It's so woefully immature and smacks of some girls boarding school skit.....it's rubbish!

There are SO many funnier women out there. This is such a very poor example of the female talent out there.....bin it BBC and find REAL talent....

Lesley Ann said...

Tittybangbang is the best thing ever. I am it's biggest fan and use are all gay how can you not like it. So don't diss punks :-)

Rich said...

I love TBB. It's spectacularly unwatchable, probably the single worst piece of comedy programming of my lifetime. Sketches range from the merely cringingly unfunny (the maid) to the downright offensively unfunny (the Christian sisters). So, why do I like it? It allows me to immediately filter the people who enjoy it out of my social life. As a means of identifying those with no sense of humour, I see it as an especially effective social tool.

How it's run to three series I will never know. Makes me wonder whether so called positive discimination is at play.

TittyBB is complete and utter rubbish. It's about as funny as having deep heat rubbed on your piles by your Nan.

How on earth did this pile of tat ever make it to the small screen beggars belief.

I presume the posters on here who thinks it's great are either related to the writers or were in the cast.
