Thanks to the wonders of the internet and the existence of 4OD, I’ve been able to discover a long lost comedy sketch show that seems to have existed for only 5 episodes but is most definitely worth seeing….Dog Face!
Created by Objective Productions who also made Tool Academy and Peep Show, Dog Face combines fast-paced sketches with stylish “dog-based” animation. There a number of different sketches in every show but there are some recurring ones which are simply hilarious.
Matt King (Superhans from Peep Show ) is The Straight Man. Although “not that way”, he is obsessed with picking a top five list of men to sleep with.
In another memorable sketch King plays a chav who keeps telling his girlfriend: “SHUT UP BOLLOCK CHOPS!”. It’s the catchphrase of the year. One word: HILARIOUS.
Catherine Shepherd also appears as The Weather Girl, who is having a hard time keeping her personal life out of the weather forecast.
The show lasted only 5 episodes and even though each episode is hilarious, the recurring sketches tended to become tired by the third episode. Still, the memorable characters created in the series and the sketches are simply genius.
You’ll definitely recognise the cast. Check out where they’re from below:
