There are a few labels that I buy titles from regardless if I have heard from of them or not: Blue Underground, Shout! Factory, Synapse, and Severin. There are a few others but those are the big boys. So, when I woke up this morning to see this in the inbox, I put it on my list. I’ve never heard of this series but if Severin is involved with the distribution then it’s gotta be good.
DVD FROM SEVERIN FILMS
IN STORES OCTOBER 11, 2011
MATT BERRY & RICH FULCHER SUPPORTING RELEASE
WITH APPEARANCES IN LOS ANGELES
Severin Films is pleased to announce the DVD release of the British cult-hit comedy series Snuff Box on October 11, 2011. Written by and starring Matt Berry (The IT Crowd ) and Rich Fulcher (The Mighty Boosh ), Snuff Box was lauded by The Velvet Onion as “An amazing show…funny, bizarre.” Dangerous Minds described it as “A work of demented genius…Snuff Box is the greatest sketch comedy show you’ve never heard of.”
Snuff Box premiered in the UK on BBC3 in 2006 and has since developed cult status worldwide, attracting millions of views on Youtube. The acclaimed series follows professional hangmen Matt Berry and Rich Fulcher as they down whiskeys at the Hangmen’s Club, experience awkward moments, charm women, navigate a long white hallway, and repeatedly attempt to acquire a pair of silver cowboy boots. Darkly hilarious, Snuff Box is a genre-bending hybrid of sitcom and sketch, known for its unforgettable musical numbers such as Rapper with a Baby and the legendary The Empty Room.
The DVD release contains all six Snuff Box episodes and a trunkful of special features including: an all-new documentary featuring Snuff Box celebrity superfans such as Paul Rudd, Simon Pegg and Noel Fielding; audio commentaries for episodes 1, 2 and 6; a walking tour of Snuff Box locations; a look into the show’s musical process; and a bonus CD of the Snuff Box original soundtrack. Snuff Box DVD will be available in stores on Tuesday, October 11. Matt Berry and Rich Fulcher will be supporting the release with the following appearances in Los Angeles: an in-store signing at Amoeba Records on October 1st, a performance at the Upright Citizens Brigade on October 1st, and a special event at Cinefamily on October 2nd..
