sadly BBC support for brexit has clipped the channel's wings. they have become very partisan, pro the right wing elite. the left wing, ironic and challenging comics they used to feature are now caught in a trap. insult their paymaster or censor their material. or a third choice, walk away. none of these works well for audiences. BBC RIP

Dire. When you have a good comedian like Andrew Maxwell standing on a stage why would you have him not tell jokes but rather introduce expensively piped in dross from around the world instead.

I would agree this is not comedy. however it was thought provoking and, as someone interested in sound production, I thought it was well crafted and fascinating throughout.
