if you can find it. Basically turns into a very interesting back and forth about the ethics of comedy. Both men come out of it very well.
Kelly challenged Skinner about when Frank had made a (funny but a bit off-colour) joke at his expense about the time he was questioned on (later unfounded) sexual assault charges. It became a rather interesting debate about the rights and wrongs of making such jokes.

"In the Eighties, Rivers won over the UK to the extent that, in 1986, she was given her own BBC2 vehicle, the half-hour chat show “Can We Talk?”. A curious footnote in a lengthy career, the show is remembered for assigning Peter Cook the demeaning role of sidekick"
