The Wrong Door, on DVD, today.
Can you believe it?
Two years after it was first broadcast on BBC3, The Wrong Door has finally arrived in the shops.
The Wrong Door, the CGI sketch show I wrote a tiny bit of which had the highest ever audience on BBC3 for a new sketch show.
No one watched past the first episode, but that’s beside the point.
I tell a lie, some people did watch every episode … and then came here every single fucking week to complain about it.
Or you could copy some of the more hardcore comedy fans out there and send me a death threat, that was fun. Not quite so much fun as the guy who offered to rape my (then six month old) daughter to ‘teach me a lesson’.
He seemed like a lovely chap.
The Wrong Door! The sketch show The Times called ‘hilarious’ … and then the next day: ‘laboured and directionless’ – both comments aimed squarely at the same sketch … one I wrote.
Fuck it, it’s out on DVD and they’ve even put the characters from my sketches on the front cover.
According to Amazon I actually starred in it too. As well as the Magnificent Seven, Clarissa, Python and (astoundingly, given I was minus 29 at the time) The Road to Morocco. Oh that Bing, I tells ya.
Anyway, The Wrong Door, on DVD today.
Buy it or don’t, your choice.
