Chatty Death is a sketch series in Series 6 of the Horrible Histories TV series.

Finished with “Stupid Deaths”, Death (portrayed by Simon Farnaby) moves onto broadcasting a new TV show, a parody of Allan Carr's Chatty Man. Death speaks to some of Histories rulers, & tells them how people mostly see them as today, & drives them up the wall as much as possible, before sending them falling into the afterlife.
