The offbeat comedy series from the UK, Modern Toss will premiere on ABC2 at 7:30pm Thursday November 27th.
Based on series of cartoons aimed at adults, the Channel 4 series has a mix of animation and live action with lashings of profanity and adult concepts. The animation style is spartan, low-grade and subversive. Much of the satire is of mundane suburban life.
Regular characters and sketches include Drive-By Abuser, Illegal Alphabet, Mr Tourette – Master Signwriter, Sneezeman, and Fly Talk. Warning: language.
