Editorial Reviews

What is SNUFF BOX? It s the legendary BBC series written by and starring Britain s Matt Berry (The IT Crowd, The Mighty Boosh) and American Rich Fulcher (Funny or Die Presents, The Sarah Silverman Program) that only aired once yet instantly achieved entered cult infamy. It s a combination of depraved sitcom about a pair of jovial hangmen and twisted sketch comedy ala Monty Python, filled with bad first dates, time travel, sex, whiskey, awkward moments, random beatings, snappy musical numbers, one very long white hall, rampant swearing and other pleasures. It s the show critics have called one the best kept secrets in the history of British comedy , now on DVD for the first time ever in America!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Sketch Comedy? September 11, 2008
Format:DVD
Berry and Fulcher; the most unsung comedy duo?

The first time I watched this I thought "This is pretty good stuff". Then I started showing it to friends... by the third time I watched the series I realized what I thought was bronze was most defiantly gold.

The comedy is dark and surreal, the content mature, and music is genius.

If your a fan of either Berry's work in 'Garth Merenghi's Darkplace' or Fulcher's Bob Fossil from the 'The Mighty Boosh'... then defiantly pick up this DVD.

*I have the R2 (British) version of this disc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Church of the Drunken Cherubim October 18, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This series is genius, and gets better and better with subsequent viewings.

When I first saw it I had the same reaction many have - prolonged mild confusion punctuated by moments of humor. Thank heaven my fondness for Matt Berry and Rich Fulcher compelled me to persevere because as I kept watching I realized a brilliant cumulative musical-comedic nexus was slyly building. The episodes became funnier and funnier as I was drawn into their delicious world of drunken sex, self-loathing narcissism (yes, that's right), absurdity, and violence. Phrases like "sketch comedy" don't adequately cover what this is. It might meet that definition technically but is something much greater than the sum of that formula. It is a clever and tightly woven dark comedy universe with a first-rate soundtrack, disguised as a kooky, toilet humor sketch show. It's like Columbo: perhaps bumbling and mediocre on the surface, but sharp as a razor underneath.

I've now watched the whole series from beginning to end many times, but had only a third-rate, recorded from television copy obtained by debasing myself in ways of which I wish never to speak again. I'm delighted that it has finally been released on Region 1 DVD so I leave that foul chapter behind me. Thank you, Severin! The second disc of music is a treasure as well and will provide much joy (and a few surprises!) to any fan of the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy now. January 8, 2013
Format:DVD
There are very few genuine no-brainers in life. Purchasing this item is one of them for people who like Snuff Box. If you are here reading this (unless you are mistakenly attempting to purchase an actual box to put snuff in) then you should just buy this item now. Actually, even if you ARE here looking to purchase an actual box to put snuff in, you should get this DVD anyway and perhaps it will change your life. Perhaps not, but it's $18 after all.

Yes. You've perhaps already worn a shiny groove in the Netflix server hard disk watching Snuff Box. Random access is the best solution for this as I find myself needing to watch odd episodes at random times. There is something strangely pleasant, reassuring and calming about Rich's slightly fey Tourette-inspired rants and Matt's exquisite smarminess. We return to the club again and again to share a quiet whiskey and smoke with them - and then Rich's redneck brother shows up, Matt archly dismisses another street corner conquest or his deaf brother buzzily corrects a misconception.

The DVD "set" (well.. it's 1) is a veritable treasure trove. There are audio commentaries from Rich and Matt on three episodes including 1 and 6. They are fun and funny. Lagers are opened and they don't take it quite seriously enough for me but there it is. There is an excellent walking tour of the shooting locations. I particularly enjoyed this as the last time I was in London (Fall '12) the wife and I went on the Street Art London walking tour which basically ends up in the exact same spot - a series of small streets and blind alleys around the old Truman Brewery complex just off Brick Lane. (I can't recommend that tour highly enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not family humour, but GREAT fun! May 23, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
As a Monty Python fan, I was expecting something along these lines with this collection of episodes - what a shock!

Irreverant, hilarious, leaving nothing sacred - especially good for a viewing with the boys when they're feeling a bit "laddish".

"Whiskey!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

5.0 out of 5 stars Why does this DVD smell so good?!?!?!
Really. I have never had a DVD that smells as good as this one. Also, this is probably my favorite show ever.

It comes with a soundtrack CD and that is priceless.
