After seeing the very funny trailer, I am really looking forward to this show. I think Jack is a great stand-up and I love Bad Education but his father, Michael is very funny too and he is very set in his ways. I will be watching and I am very much looking forward to it.

Who else is interested?

I find him annoying so won't be watching. I hope those who like him enjoy it though.

The pair of them were on the Richard Bacon show recently and his Dad's quite a funny chap with some good anecdotes. Will probably give this a look.

"Me and my father" says Whitehall.

"My father and me" incorrectly corrects his father!

NO, NO, NO! It's my father and I!!!!!

But doesn't he say 'join me and my father' or something?
In which case his dad's correction is right.

Possibly but he has lapses.

Like writing "today" on Twitter as "to-day".

You will find it next to the slagging off of Oprah Winfrey and Diane Abbott.

Father and son predate the Shakespearean fool.

Here they are appointed by the King to mock a gullible public.

His dad was the funniest bit. Or the funny bit, really.

It was funny in parts, but they didn't quite pull off the improvised style they were going for, as many parts were clearly scripted off-the-cuff banter.
