The Mash Report - BBC2's new topical comedy show.

Starting tonight. It has writers from the UK's Onion-like website, The Daily Mash. Please let it be funny.

I wasn't referring to Kumar, I can't auralise his accent.

The gay woman's top... is that like a comedy blouse?

IIJM or was that sketch laboured as fuck?

xbod72 - 26 Sep 2019 22:19:08 (#304 of 327)

It went on too long, I thought.

xbod72 - 26 Sep 2019 22:19:33 (#305 of 327)

But it wasn't aimed at Catholics.

TRaney - 26 Sep 2019 22:20:51 (#306 of 327)

I'm not a catholic

TRaney - 26 Sep 2019 22:22:34 (#307 of 327)

Oh christ not this cunt

xbod72 - 26 Sep 2019 22:23:08 (#308 of 327)

Aren't you!? Oh. Sorry. I don't know where I got that idea. I thought you'd said so on that anniversary of The Reformation or something.

xbod72 - 26 Sep 2019 22:23:50 (#309 of 327)

I do find I zone out a lot while this is on, but my concentration is poor overall, I suppose.

TRaney - 26 Sep 2019 22:28:09 (#310 of 327)

Do schoolkids stay up to watch this and repeat bits of it the next day?

SharkPatoo - 26 Sep 2019 22:50:08 (#311 of 327)

Of course not, it's rubbish!

solomongursky - 26 Sep 2019 22:50:42 (#312 of 327)

Richard Pictures was funny.

SharkPatoo - 26 Sep 2019 22:52:31 (#313 of 327)

Richard Pictorial woulda been funnier.

For all he was mocked, it's not really as good as Mike Yarwood (incidentally, just reading MY's wiki page, that's a sad story; I didn't know). That said, I still think we need a programme like this, and obviously it's not easy to be topical and funny in short order. Maybe they should bring Marina in as a writer?

moto748 - 28 Sep 2019 01:17:58 (#315 of 327)

And I did think, about the dick pic piece, well, if it stops one guy...

moto748 - 28 Sep 2019 01:18:37 (#316 of 327)

Public service television at its best, there!

frantastic - 28 Sep 2019 13:42:22 (#317 of 327)

Pubic Service Television.

They say they're gonna make a new series of spitting image, I hope it retains some of the spirit if the orig

Spitting Image was very much of its time, I can't see a new version being anything but a disappointment.
