Dancing in Heaven

From The Armando Iannucci Shows, the oddly dreamlike sketch show, written and fronted by the small, hairy mastermind behind The Day Today, I’m Alan Partridge and The Thick of It.

The programme is a mix of sketches and monologues. It’s frequently surreal, but the show sets a tone in which everything has its own logic. It meanders along, and you get caught up in the slow-pulsing rhythm of it as much as anything else. The result is much like slowly drifting into somebody else’s anxious, paranoid daydream. But in a good way.

That’s Hale and Pace working in a shoe shop at the end, by the way. Of course it is.
