Reviews of Jonathan Creek and The Many Faces of Sid James…
The idea behind Plebs is that life today isn’t all that dissimilar. The lads try to get ahead in life, work and love, but always fail.
This week Channel 4 presented a slightly different take on impressionism, weaving it into a sitcom format.
This week Ian Wolf encounters out-of-date satire, “Up the Junction” sung in the style of Donald Duck, and a sketch character that looks a bit like Chris Ramsey.
This week Ian Wolf encounters a cat called Mosley and the naughty cousin of a leprechaun – at exactly the same time (thank heavens for BBC iPlayer).
This week Comedy Central, a network devoted to repeating American sitcom Friends until your eyes bleed, began a new stand-up show dedicated to alternative comics. Sort of.
This week (because he only has Freeview), Ian Wolf watches two Sky1 comedies for the first time ever.
This Ian Wolf watches a PM, a wannabe MP, and gives a personal shout-out to the British Winter Special Olympics team.
