Have I Got News For You is often considered great.... a sort of modern Spitting Image. It is hysterically stylized, diabolical and often funny. It is so easy to have comedy shows which deride individuals. Real comedy is laughs, when they aren't at anyone's expense. Yes, there have been funny times- e.g the Lard but it is becoming too dated and the british public and gradually becoming bored of it.
I, for one, think England is ready for new comedy..... new Comedy writers. We want something funny to watch on Friday nights. Not the normal BBC run of the mill drudge.
