Take the banal, the irrelevant and the downright silly, add a female perspective, pour in a hefty dose of comic timing, stir well, and what do you get? Smack the Pony. The team of Sally Phillips, Doon MacKichan and Fiona Allen play on women's neuroses (snogging, pubic hair and size of boobs, not necessarily in that order), their preoccupations (finding a man, finding a man and finding a man), their weaknesses (Marks & Spencer, fashion and men) and their competitiveness (more covert than that of the male of the species, and therefore far more deadly). The spoof dating agency clips take in the full range of stereotypes and unfailingly hit the spot.
An especially festive compilation of hilarious and outlandish comedy sketches courtesy of Fiona Allen, Sally Phillips and Doon Mackickan. This was the first christmas special, with the second airing in 2003 new year.

Sexy, sassy and at times surreal. 'Smack the Pony' consistently hits the mark with knowing comment, a sense of satire as well as silliness and sharp observations of modern life.
