With a huge role call displaying the cream of British comedy talent appearing as crazy characters in outlandish situations,welcome to Jinsy, the island of misadventure! Essential viewing for fans of alternative British comedy.
Simply Media are delighted to announce the release of the wonderfully absurd cult sitcom/sketch show This is Jinsy: Series 2 on DVD 15th May 2017.
Created by the largely unknown Chris Bran and Justin Chubb from Guernsey, to add to its allure, this eight-part series (with the first series nominated for a British Comedy Award) will appeal to fans of surreal alternative comedies such as Monty Python's Flying Circus, The Mighty Boosh or the works of Spike Milligan.
Originally shown on Sky Atlantic in 2014, This is Jinsy transports audiences to the fictional island of Jinsy. Land of fabulous knitwear, folksong and hi-tech surveillance, or "a Channel Island that has slipped its moorings" as explained by Chubb.
The island’s 791 eccentric inhabitants are watched over by 1067 tessellators – Jinsy's surveillance system. From the vantage point in their Great Tower, Arbiter Maven (Chubb) and his long-suffering assistant, Sporall (Bran), attempt to run the island in strict adherence to Jinsy law and its unseen overlord, The Great He!
Jinsy's strange and colourful inhabitants are played by some of Britain's finest actors and comedians, as you have never seen them before. Each episode stars a notable guest star throwing themselves fully at their role. Amongst the starry cast you’ll find Stephen Fry as a reanimated ancient wig; Derek Jacobi as the island's oldest man, who is a baby; Olivia Colman as Maven's buck-toothed wife; Katy Brand as the local psychic that specialises in rat-bum reading; Greg Davies as the sinister lady who dispels punishment on the residents of Jinsy from the safety of her television studio; and Jennifer Saunders as the voice of reason itself.
Hilarious and catchy musical interludes from the cast are supported by the Jinsy choir. Classics include "Female Badger" performed by Rob Brydon; "Onion Song" featuring KT Tunstall; and an unmistakable tribute to David Bowie and Mick Jagger in "Fruit Suit".
