THE ELE­GANT GEN­TLE­MAN’S GUIDE TO KNIFE FIGHT­ING, ABC1, 9pm

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Wednesday -

IT won’t be to ev­ery­one’s taste but Ele­gant Gen­tle­man is an im­pres­sive slice of alternative sketch com­edy with an un­der­cur­rent of dan­ger. From the peo­ple be­hind A Moody Christ­mas, the per­for­mances are ex­cel­lent, and the writ­ing avoids cliches. Not ev­ery­thing works but the sketches that do are mem­o­rable, like the ag­gres­sive Prius driver with a mas­sive sense of en­ti­tle­ment; the Amish IT tech­ni­cian and the OHS of­fi­cer at a porn shoot. At times it seems like it’s try­ing a lit­tle too hard to be edgy, but too much edge is prob­a­bly bet­ter than too lit­tle.
