Choosing which moments from various shows to excerpt in the latest episode of Comedy Is … was a careful exercise. Some of the best sketches from Shaun Micallef’s shows rely on visuals, mostly reactions, or on the silence between moments. This is hard to demonstrate in an audio format. So here’s a few clips that I wanted to include, but couldn’t.
I think this is one of my favourite sketches in anything ever.
This one, from Full Frontal, is all about the performances, but there’s some great lines in there too.
While this one is just about extending the tension for as long as possible.
