Great show. Fact.
Go Go GO!
terrible show. absolutely awful...
Like those dumb arse comics would even dare to step into the shoes of a politician? It's all too easy taking potshots from the sidelines with a raised eyebrow. It's harder to not look like a cowardly cunt doing it unless you are active in the area yourself. I might be pretty damning about music, but at least I make my own contribution, you know? Even if some people* wish I wouldn't. I dunno. They do come across as a bunch of moaning, haughty, snide cockends, don't they...
they're just such one-trick ponies.
that's why i loved mock the week. there was one episode where you could see rory bremner trying to set up another joke about tony blair and just as he launched, mid-joke, into the tony blair voice, frankie cut him off and made everyone laugh.
bremner was silent for the remaining ten minutes. it was beautiful.
if he was at least witty with it, it might work. but it's like, yeah, you can roughly recreate a politician's voice/mannerisms. brilliant. and..?
like, at all.
one of the reasons why i never watch this show
But some of the sketches are very funny.
anything good on TV !
'chattering classes' sketches are funny. bremner is the least funny of the three.
those are definitely the best bits...
everything else is shit
But did anyone see that advert they did with the Graham Norton thing? It was getting on for Little Britain humour.
