For me, Frankie and Russell probably come across slightly better on-screen, but in the studio it's more Russell and Hugh.

I think that's pretty much universally agreed upon.

Frankie Boyle's comedy has bite because he has an agenda. He's actually quite an angry man at heart. I think everyone is good – they all have different strengths. Andy Parsons had a good night tonight.

I agree about the angry. But when he was on Richard & Judy the other week, he was so quiet and soft spoken, he was like a different person. He didn't feel like he was performing, I suppose.

Aww!
That is true sometimes.
I think he has a man crush on Frankie and tries to impress him with his jokes.

Ha ha, now you mention it I can see what you mean - he does look across at him from time to time.

Russell annoys me for some reason. Maybe because he delivers his, admitedly funny, jokes in such a smug and arrogant way.

I think we're all in agreement though - Frankie Boyle is ace and very quick witted.

I like Hugh - he doesn't contribute much during most of the show (apart from getting the actual answers to the topical questions right... I think someone mentioned before he does like to win) but in the final round he's always on top form.
