Trigger Happy TV

Show Summary

Welcome to the Trigger Happy TV guide at TV.com. Trigger Happy TV is a show where a few people go across London doing some of the strangest, most random improvised acts and catching it all on tape. Most of the time, they dress up as animals and do something crazy or scream into their enormous cell phone, or they'll do another one of their insane ideas. Reruns of Trigger Happy TV are aired on Comedy Central. Comedy Central also created a new version of the show, which takes place in the United States. The US version has a new theme song and title sequence which feature scenes from the show, thereby ruining some jokes. Non-original music has been replaced with instrumental versions that sound just different enough to avoid lawsuits. Show Attributes: 13 regular episodes, 1 separate pilot, 2 specials Last Updated: May 16, 2004

  • You have to laugh

    9.0
    This is seriously one of the funniest things I've ever seen in my life. I was skimming through the channels one day and came upon this, and I must say it's a real gem. Let's just admit hidden camera shows aren't what they used to be. "Just for Laughs" was lame "Punk'd" was cruel and stupid and there just wasn't anything good. Trigger Happy is refreshing and new, and instead focusing on the point where the person is told they're on camera, the real focus is their reaction. No one is ever told they're on camera, you just watch their reaction as the absurd situations go by. Jolly is hilarious and I really wish they would have kept this one around longer.moreless
  • A great British reality comedy show.

    8.3
    This was a pretty good British comedy television series. As is normal with good television shows, this one did not last long enough. This is a show that I would suggest watching if you get the chance. Check the bargain bins at Wal-Mart, the online movies sites (Amazon.com and such) and all of the cable channels that run old shows. Nick at Nite and TV Land are great for theses kind of shows. They will even do a week long spot for shows that only had 6 or so episodes. Then you have your super stations. They run a bunch of old shows too. All in all a pretty good show that did not get a good enough chance. Sometimes it is a simple as the show it is up against. Look at Law & Order. It is one of the longest running shows on TV. They moved it to go up against Lost. After about 2 weeks of getting pounded in the ratings it was moved back to it's original time slot. Shows like this should be given more of an opportunity.moreless
