Facejacker product reviews

From the creators of the BAFTA award winning Fonejacker comes Facejacker. Kayvan Novak once again wreaks havoc with the general public, but this time he gets up close and personal.

Disguised with the aid of prosthetics, Kayvan plays a dazzling multitude of fictional characters, some familiar and some brand new, including: the charismatic and many times divorced car salesman, Terry Tibbs; scamster Augustus Kwmbe, whose hypnotherapy service is really a front for stealing bank account details; and infuriating complaint monger, Dufrais.

New faces include charlatan art critic Brian Badonde and Dr Ali, former plastic surgeon to the late Saddam Hussein. All are thrust into real-life situations where Kayvan's targets have no idea what's coming their way.

Facejacker showcases Kayvan Novak's amazing array of voices and characters as well as his sublime comic improvisational skills.

The blurb on the back of the DVD may not sell it to you. Having taken the plunge and put it in the DVD player, I was laughing from the start.

Ok, I have to admit some of the situations were WTF moments and I didn't realise why I was laughing, but there is plenty of genuine and somewhat surreal comedy to be found in the episodes. The real comedy is not just in Novak's characters and situations - but the reactions to the unsuspecting general public caught square in the cross-hairs of his comedic weaponry.

He has a vast number of characters at his disposal and uses each one of them to the maximum advantage - the oddest character (with a bobble-hat, sun glasses and a cut for the mouth) was the funniest (in my opinion), but that is not to say any of the characters were weak. The prosthetics are fantastic and none of the characters have recognisable similarities in either looks, speech or mannerisms. Novak shows the true art of a character artist.

The reaction of the general public (who are unawares that they are in the middle of a mischievous jape) is utterly priceless and seem to be genuinely oblivious to the ridiculous situations they find themselves in. Unlike many prank shows, they do not cut to the prankster revealing himself to the prankee. I guess this adds another dimension to add to the show.

This is series one, which implies there is at least a series two planned to be released and I sincerely look forward to seeing this and any new characters in the next series.
