  • Paul Merton is not the only person to get a laugh out of the audience. All guests perform well.

    This episode is good because of its guests. Recently I've found this show kind of annoying with the main problem being Paul Merton. Yes he's funny as hell but god he's aware of it... In this episode he rails into Rob Brydon ALOT. This is kind of surprising as Rob is pretty passive. Frankie Boyle is very good. Yeah, I've heard him use those jokes elsewhere but thats in the same way I've heard just about every comedian bar Ben Elton reuse material (whatever happened to him?). Actually Frankie is pretty good in spite of his sweat patches but there seems to be some real tension between him and Merton. Both get some very sharp one liners in but neither seem happy with the others popularity with the audience (especially Merton). Claudia Winkleman, yeah I have a crush on her but its largely because of this show. She's also pretty funny. Ultimately this episode is good because the guests divert the spotlight from Merton (somewhat), something he doesn't take with the greatest dignity (seriously watch him make faces whenever Brydon or Boyle get a laugh in).moreless
