I thought this was a great little show. Interesting to see the contrasts in styles and delivery, how some died and some wowed the audience and to get the take of the likes of Ed Byrne, Jason Manford and co on the whole thing.
I was amazed that it was a one-off. An hour long show, during whcih they mentioned that they started off with 432 acts and we were going to see the final eight. never mind skating on shite or celebrity gospel singers on acid, rthis would have made a really good, funny, interesting show over say a six week, once a week run.
Instead they crammed it all into at tops, 50 minutes including ad breaks. Baby Cow, what were you thinking? I'd happily have watched this show in the format described above. A new talent show for stand ups. At least it's not contrived. No ice rinks, no sequins, no camp drama queen judges, just varying degrees of comedic talent.
Why was it a one off?
