The blasphemous offering is not for the faint-hearted...
Comedian CHRIS MORRIS has made a new and controversial ‘BLUE JAM’ sketch available via the WARP RECORDS website, [url=]www.warprecords.com.
Morris released a CD, ‘Blue Jam’, through Warp last month. The album was a compilation of his sketches taken from his late night Radio 1 series of the same name broadcast between 1997 and 1999.
Now, a new sketch has been made available via the Warp site, and can be seen at [url=]www.www.warprecords.com/bluejam.
According to a statement, the sketch was a “deliberately crude sacrificial offering to Radio 1 management”, and is based around a women who visits a doctor complaining of a sore neck. The doctor offers a number of possible treatments, including putting “Christ’s cock and balls” under her arm. The sketch continues to make numerous blasphemous references throughout.
Morris is also confirmed to appear on the late night Radio 1 show The Breezeblock from midnight on November 6. A spokesperson for Radio 1 would not elaborate on what Morris had planned for the show, although it will feature music and dialogue, created especially.
If Morris’ previous output is an indicator, the Breezeblock session is likely to be controversial. His Channel 4 comedy series ‘Jam’ was recently branded “unacceptable” by the Broadcasting Standards Commission, who objected to comedy sketches which “went beyond the acceptable boundaries in their treatment of issues of particular sensitivity which required greater respect for the vulnerability of those depicted”.
Some of the sketches dealt with issues including the death of small children and abortion.
Morris is the creator of the comedy programmes ‘The Day Today’, ‘Brass Eye’, ‘Blue Jam’ and ‘Jam’.
