    This week; newcomers Dave Hughes and Rebel Wilson suck in their stomach and walk through the blue door as does old hands Akmal Saleh and Josh Lawson.

    Akmal plays a detective who is more keen on cracking jokes than investigating on a string of murders and i'm pleased to say this is Akmal at his finest; usually on the show he is a mess of unfunny one - liners and gaffes but in this one he's in great form and opens the show with a bang.

    This bang is followed by a fizzle as newcomer Rebel Wilson plays a wife visiting her husband in jail and if there was a law agaisnt making paint drying look funny then it'd be vice versa, it could be blamed on the situation having no potential but the jittery Wilson never attracts a genuine laugh and drags the episode down. Now make room (literally) for Dave Hughes who shows his patriotism in an Australian tracksuit as an arrogant olympian who tries not to curse when talking to a class of youngsters and despite not changing emotion; Hughes is fantastic and exhibits improv genius after the call of duty. Josh Lawson couldn't mess up a sketch if he tried but the premise of him being on a talk show promoting his new airline never finds its feet and by that time Lawson has verbally abused his co - stars into the ground. The All - In group challenge features solid performances from everyone but this as well as the entire show really belogned to Dave Hughes who took out the MVP for this week.moreless
