| Rare and Genius Comedy
I can understand why many people would be bewildered and possibly almost frightened by this sort of comedy; it was raw and it was completely uncompromising.

Comedy Nation was a platform for new talent to break into television, it was a very jumbled sketch show with many writers and performers adding pieces; it was completely un-linked and totally unrefined. Yes there were some dodgy pieces, but there was also a great deal of genius on show; it seems everybody currently producing alternative British television comedy had a part in this show and it served very well as a stepping stone for some of the best acts on TV. The likes of Kevin Eldon, Julia Davis, Peter Serafinowicz, David Mitchell, Robert Webb and Johnny Vegas; to name a few.

Comedy Nation contained the kind of sketches that left you stunned; The Divine David, a kind of beat up, bitter transvestite, Simon Munnery's 'league against tedium', and of course, the Gaa Haa clown, the embodiment of insanity. I suppose you either like it or you don't, but if you don't, I think you're really missing out.
