just a poor man's Brass Eye, with a bit of "aren't we funny and clever" arrogance.
Precisely. Too reliant on swearing for laughs. The studio audience detracts massively from any attempt to be deadpan. Why is it there? So the 5-year-olds watching know when to laugh?
It is shamefully juvenile dross. Clever comedy should attack the message, the hypocrisy, the pretentious conceit, not a person's appearance. Anyone could write this kind of crap. It's like listening to a bunch of 10-year-olds who have learnt how to swear and think they're amazingly cool. Sad that the BBC cannot come up with better.
