| Matt Berry and Ayoade are weird, creative guys
I watched this Rock Opera tonight and laughed the nervous, embarrassed laughter that I think the creators intended. AD/BC is clearly a play on Jesus Crist Superstar, and mimics that original film's clearly hippy 70s feel for maximum crunch power. If you've ever seen Garth Merenghi's Dark Place or IT Crowd (also with Ayoade and Berry), or The Mighty Boosh (with Adrian Barratt, Noel Fielding, and Matt Berry), you will probably like this musical. All of these guys have a certain leaning toward absurdist comedy with an intentional nostalgic, low-budget production quality, and this is probably one of the best representational examples.
