The Goes Wrong Show
IMDb rating: 8.5/10
Theatrical hilarity and farce get the full treatment in the recently renewed six-episode British comedy series The Goes Wrong Show. Developed by British theatre company Mischief Theatre, which produced the acclaimed The Play That Goes Wrong, each half-hour episode of The Goes Wrong Show delivers a new theatrical catastrophe in a different genre, presented by the fictional Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society.
Financial Times gave it a five-star review, saying, “This stuff has to be directed and performed with pinpoint accuracy if it’s to succeed. Fortunately, it’s perfectly, deliberately, terrible.”
“While every mistake here is, of course, meticulously planned,” comedy website Chortle says, “they are pulled off with enough flair, commitment and occasional ingenuity to break all but the most cynical of viewers to laughter.”
