Hello,

Could anyone who went to yesterdays recording give us some hints about what was recorded?

Just got the bad email... Better than no email I guess! I'd only submitted oneliners this week. Well done to all who got in.

Well done Exe Chris. I've just got the good e-mail too. Good luck to others. I sent 3 Breaking News and 3 Viewsjacks, no sketches or adverts.

Well done above! I'm a newbie to this site - I got the nearly email. Seems like a good start. I sent in three viewsjack one-liners, nothing else. Onwards and upwards.

What's the bad email? I thought they only sent out an email if you were successful? First time poster long time lurker.

What others call the "nearly email". You made it to the live recording/final script but didn't make the broadcast.

Still a great thing to get! Well done to all nearly-ers and to those who made it onto tonight's airing!

Nothing from me this time; going to try and submit stuff every week, though -a fun challenge!

I like that each series gets both more satirical and more surreal in equal measure. Favourite jokes were "You drew a smiley face on a train!" and "but if you tried to eat an iPad, you would die!" An excellent first episode. The bar has been set and it is very high.
