At some point, I'll analyse why this is so good...


Good luck with that. I'm still humming the 'Tina Turner' sketch from last week but I can't think for the life of me why it is so special.

But it is.

It's a Glasgow thing, I suppose.

Watched 4 episodes today on catch-up, and I loved the Yoker bus sketch, Tina Turner was brilliant as was the Open sign guy.
Also like the bits when he's telling the viewer off.

Agree with what has been said about it being refreshing and unique. It's nice to see skecthes that aren't formulaic. I'm loving it.

Glad to hear someone else enjoyed that, everyone else wis like "whit wis that aboot?" . . . just go wae it . . .

This week I really liked the "wrong way down a one way stre-eet" running gag and the pay-off.

Also think Paraside is the strongest new bit this series . . . Effin C she's callin' him an Effin C . . .

For your viewing & listening pleasure, here's a remix of Wrong Way Down A One Way Street, mashed-up with the Limmy's Show theme tune:

It *is* beautiful.

Good stuff. I noticed on the comment section you say 'Before his "Lose 1000 followers in 24hrs" Twitter melt-down'.

He hasn't tweeted much after that....

I heard that @DaftLimmy got booted off Twitter because @frankieboyle complained that his tweets were too offensive.

Having been weary of comedy shows that mildly amuse or entertain me without making me laugh once - or even that make me cringe (ie most recent BBC sitcoms), I was overjoyed to see this new series. I laughed so much it hurt. There is just the right amount of truth and pathos in the character sketches and the right amount of strangeness in the strange ones. I still can't get over it - I watched a comedy on TV that induced real laughter....
