I have always loved these two, Gabrielle 😀 Brilliant stuff. Makes me laugh every time I hear a critic droning on. Thanks for the reminder!

I love this old stuff. QI is rubbish!

Sketches are great Rog (and have gone out of fashion a bit over time) – I like QI but it’s not as good as this stuff – there is no-one like Hugh Laurie of the bulging eyes and Stephen Fry of the verbal diarrhea 😉 to make you laugh.

Not sure it this isn’t also a parody of some of the political pundits I’ve seen on the network news programs.;-)

You bet Graham – and then there’s always The Young Ones (which we watch a lot of in this house – haha) – actually Alexi Sayle is in the The Young Ones sometimes (like an uninvited guest 😉 ) – he’s hilarious

I found this scientilatingly brilliant in a jejune way, having moments of crepuscular divergence from the socio-religio-politico-artistico normative tendencies that one ordinarily expects of Brit satire, while on the other hand evocating a fraculatingly inelegant noisomeness that dissipates right before reaching the edge of cuttingness.

Bwhahahahahaha – brilliant Aletha (you would have been a natural in the Cambridge Uni comedy set, which Stephen and co. started out with) 🙂

There is only one thing to say to this – CHORTLE. Incredibly witty and funny!
