Christopher J Morris (born 5 September 1965) is an English comedian, writer, director, actor, voice actor, and producer. He is known for his black humour, surrealism, and controversial subject matter, and has been hailed for his "uncompromising, moralistic drive" by the British Film Institute.

Fellow Limeys, I have put minimal effort into this thread, because, as we all know... Homosexuals can't swim, they attract enemy radar and they attract sharks.

Please continue the education of the bewildered deplorables, the offended Libtards and the scouse cunts.

Brass Eye satirised news sensationalism by using ridiculously over-produced computer graphics

News organisations saw it, missed the point, and copied it. It looked tame within a few years.

OP, you missed Nathan Barley, which I know was co-written by Charlie Brooker, but I feel the direction and 'vibe' was very much Chris Morris' concern. I live and work in the kind of absurd East London new media bubble it explores and it's crazy how prophetic it is seeing as it was made in 2004.

Edit: the slang by Richard Ayoade's character ("that's well bum", etc) is all I can think of when people adopt whatever dumb nonsense they speak on TOWIE

The thing about Forevereal Modding Mu is that he loves editing files and wants others to download his permanent mods. Fully editing, rich text, altering files and loving it. Download his mods and enjoy it.

His gloomy, deranged monologues from Blue Jam have all been stuck in my head for almost two decades. Here are three of them. Blue Jam is the radio show that Jam got most of its material from.

Nathan Barley is a stinkyhole.

Morris helped with the TV series but it was a Brooker idea from long ago http://www.tvgohome.com/

A few years ago I had a period of waking up every other morning at 4am in the middle of a full-on panic attack, and those monologues were weirdly the one thing that would calm me down. Sort of depressing and bleak but oddly comforting.

Sudden loss of sensation is normal. Proceed as directed.

Blue Jam and Jam are horrifying and exquisite. Apparently when they filmed Jam they wanted to keep the audio from the various Blue Jam sketches so they had the actors lip sync to the Blue Jam audio and then hosed around with the framerate and so on to cover it up, making it even more unpleasantly surreal.

When Barley came out, London critics derided it for being behind the times. Then a bunch of years went by and it turned out, nope - ahead of the curve as usual.

The scene with the scissors and the cat slays me every time.

Only last night I went on a Morris binge on Youtube.

I remember telling all my mates about Brass Eye when it first aired and nobody would watch it or even believe the stuff I was telling them. It was fantastic so frustrating at the same time.

I can't see any of the Youtube links here in work, but wasn't he on Killroy once causing a shitstorm?

Oh and he did some stuff with Fat Morrisey impersonator Stewart Lee for "Comedy Vehicle"

Last month the notorious paedophile Sydney Cook was blasted into space to spend the rest of his life aboard a one-man prison vessel posing no further threat to children on Earth. But it was revealed that an 8-year-old boy was also placed on board by mistake and is now trapped alone in space with the monster. A spokesman said "This is the one thing we didn't want to happen"

The absurd mangling of the Talkback logo at the end of each Barley episode is pure Morris. See also font size 2px "Brass Eye".

Chris Morris is a literal genius. In the 90s, I had fond memories of doing tape exchanges with a British man who would send me On The Hour and Jam and such. Blew my mind wide open.
