    It really is superb. Awkwardly so. Watching two actors who are so good at improvising on the spot, it's amazing to see. Lots of cringe, lots of laughs. I'm a little biased being English, and from the royal counties, but it really makes for excellent viewing. I guess it takes a certain taste. If you like things like Borat & Bruno, this is your thing.

    Fortunately, Gamble and Hoggart can be quite funny in their pretended confusion. Their strategies are sometimes too obvious, but often the humor takes a nicely absurdist turn.

    Most of the people [Ed Gamble and Amy Hoggart--who pose as Georgie and Poppy Carlton] encounter seem to believe they're being filmed with real British aristos on a travel-type show about the U.S. Their surprise--and polite attempts to hide it--at the things the visitors from England say is the funniest part of the show.

    Gamble and Hoggart are credited as “per­formers” on the show and are also writers­ for the series, and their ability to ad-lib and play with anyone and every­one they come in contact with is a joy to watch, proof you can say almost anything to anyone, no matter how outrageous, so long as you maintain an air of innocence. Or stu­pidity.
