I've always loved Little Britain for its daring and unique comedy. I think Matt Lucas and David Walliams are a comedy duo for the 21st century. Off the back of another hit series of Little Britain, Matt and David have brought out Come Fly With Me, a 'Mockumentary' comedy from the BBC, using the same award-winning sketch-driven format of Little Britain.

The show is set in a generic airport which I think is a great idea off the bat. Airports contain so many different types of people and these are portrayed expertly by the duo. But the comedy genius comes, in abundance, from the zany characters' interactions with the public; which, whilst being not quite as cringe-worthy and daring as Little Britain, is consistently hilarious.

A few of the shows highlights, to name but a few, include Ian Foot - a racist bigot, hell bent on keeping Britain foreigner-free, Tommy Reid, a simple-minded man from Scotland who has dreams of becoming a pilot and Taaj Manzoor, a film-loving London boy who works as part of the FlyLo ground crew. The list is endless though, really. Every character is a hit.

If you're a fan of Little Britain, this show is a must. Especially if you like airports. Like Little Britain, this show is so on the edge of what is considered acceptable TV viewing, it's almost over. But if you're not easily offended you might just find this programme a gem.
