Three men dress up for all the roles, kind of like Monty Python or Little Britain. The situational absurdities here however, are pushed way way way and over the cliff. Some of this is actually quite cringe worthy, and definitely will not be everyone's cup of tea. Though if you prefer your coffee as pure unadulterated diesel fuel poison, then perhaps you may also prefer this very black and dark as night British comedy. I know I do. My wife and I rewatch these episodes quite often, and several lines have become catch phrases around the house. Give it a try. You'll either laugh out loud or you melon will melt! Quite a bit of this special is also quite disturbing! League of Gentlemen finished the series with an actual movie, which I believe is not available in the US in an official release. These three genius blokes have gone on to create a few other shows too, which are most likely only available Region 2.
What the heck is going on in DUISBERG?

"FINALLY....that question has been answered!! Herr Lipp is featured, along with his wife and choir (pronounced "queer") boys. This is by far the funniest of the three stories (the others featuring charlie/stella and Dr. Chinnery). If you're a fan of Herr Lipp (who isn't?), this is a must purchase.
Be warned that this is more like Series 3, and it's pretty dark (duh) for a Christmas Special."
