Preoccupation with death and sexual deviance
The Picnic’s preoccupation with death and sexual deviance has finally reached a logical conclusion: the extinction of the human race. Their post-apocalyptic sketch bunker houses mutant abominations, infanticidal robots and (naturally) a sinister conspiracy. Most of the jokes are as unabashedly evil as evil one-eyed villain Mr Fletcher; but, like him, they’re also the origin of much (maniacal) laughter.
