It sounds like a producers dream. Not even a panel show set, just a table and chairs. No script writer (tell 'em just to chat and tell a few jokes/anecdotes). Simple camera shots, nothing flash needed or warranted. Don't even bother with a proper title for the programme. There'll be a few appearance fees to pay but that's about it. As a viewer I can match that - don't even bother to switch on.
But that's the one great thing about modern media - there's plenty more stuff to watch all over the place - old and new - so each to his own.
Absolutely - it's a great format, isn't it. I'm sure I read though, here on the good old BCG that it was putting some comedy writers' noses out of joint? Saying that, maybe I dreamt it?

I'm not usually ne for telling people to lighten up but... For me it's more like being in the company of four genuinely funny people without the need for a script, it's a joy to watch/listen to every week. Once someone sets the ball rolling,the riffing between the guests is great.
The riffing and banter between the guests is fab, I agree

I find it extraordinary that these comics have the smug, self satisfied arrogance to believe that people should want to sit nearby to listen to them having a laugh.....not joining in, not being spoken to, just allowed to sit nearby to listen to the clever comics being clever. Do the same people that listen to this kind of oh so clever smugness also turn up to watch 'celebrities' showing off like peacocks at red carpet do's? Shouldn't we all be getting a life?
You're writing about a comedy show on a comedy website matey. I have a full and interesting life thanks* and no, I don't stalk celebrities.
