Anti-Comedy or just Unfunny?

For some reason or another I recently became obsessed with Australian sketch comedy specifically Fast Forward. And again, I really don't know why. Fast Forward was very similar to SCTV except that it was not as smart or as funny. In fact, Fast Forward was pretty hacky and lame. It seemed as if the writers were stealing their material from old issues of Cracked. But the sketch below is something of an exception. Sure, the performances are strident, it relies way too much on ZAZ styled visual puns and it's kind of racist but it all seems intentional. So, is this a clever bit of anti-comedy or is it merely just unfunny?
