Movie Moghul

Possibly the worst news quiz ever, over scripted, stilted and lacking in any off the cuff humour the show. Abd the audience sounded like it had been manufactured from a multitude of shows... Overall false

How has this series been given the Friday night comedy slot? It's awful, especially when compared with the news quiz and dead ringers... There's so much good comedy out there that deserves this slot.

There is so much complete bullshit on this programme. The crass material on anti semitism and Labour is libellous. This programme used to be funny. Now it's dead...

Sam Donkin I like comedy.. What I'm saying is that this programme has shifted into being an anti Labour Political programme and repeats slanderous RW slurs. For the record I don't listen to it now. But I do pay the BBC license fee and inadvertently part fund this show...

So funny - needed a laugh at politics and this delivered! Highlights include Theresa May's voicemail message, Boris Jekyll and Hyde, Nigel Farage wanting to join Love Island and David Attenborough refusing to broadcast any wildlife until the TV licence is free for old people again.

Such a great, intelligent show, in times when only satire can make sense of reality. Must listen.

Brilliant satire all the way through. A good laugh to combat depressing times.

What has happened to this show and why have the BBC replaced people who are actually good mimics with talentless, lefty turdballs who attack all things Brexit? Oh yeah, because they can. Shows like this are reason enough for forgoing live TV.

Nick That would depend upon his level of private education, his political view point, his colour, his sexuality and his race. If he ticks the right boxes he's supping Aunty's gravy for life. Just look at Susan Calman and Sue Perkins. This is the Brussels Broadcasting Company we're talking about here where talent and popularity needn't apply. Oh yeah and having the right agent is everything, right Aunty? ;~)

the usual fantastic cast is let down by an unfunny Kemah Bob, it actually ruins the episode!
