Watch The Bronx Bunny Show
- 1 Season
The Bronx Bunny Show is an Irish adult comedy variety TV series that originally aired on the UK's E4 station. It features the uncompromising antics of Bronx Bunny and Teddy T (the sidekick panda) from their run down apartment building in the Bronx of New York. This ten-part series pokes fun at the most current people in the news and highlights taboo subjects in a highly off-colored way. When the Bronx Bunny is cussing, Teddy T is smoking. When Teddy T is running into trouble, Bronx Bunny is pushing the envelope of social abnormality and "camp." The series was successful enough in the United Kingdom that it won a large cult following and was picked up by the American television station Starz. In order to meld better with American sensibilities, the series began to incorporate more R-rated "sesame street-like" sketches and slapstick interviews with well-known cinema, theater and television personalities. For a short-lived series, it features a commendable array of A, B, and C List names in each unique episode. These guests include stars like Ron Jeremy, William Shatner, Shannon Elizabeth, Michael Madsen, Wee Man, Hugh Heffner and Macy Gray. The series also created instant celebrities out of characters like Internal Gerbil and the Number-of-the-Week Pole Dancing Girl. The Bronx Bunny is irreverent, crude, backlot and low-budget. However, it never fails to bring on a genuine, if not embarrassing, belly laugh and a viral video stunt idea or two. This show has the paleo-quality of a comedy juggernaut, but its content inevitably keeps its audience size moderate to small. There is huge potential in this type of censor-teasing comedy, but Bronx Bunny and Teddy T will have to work hard to become more mainstream worthy.
