Here's a thread to discuss ITV's new improv show hosted by Paul Merton. It starts tomorrow night (Saturday 12th Jan 2008) at 9:05pm
As has been discussed on here before, the show is based on the really rather good Australian show of the same name. If ITV manage to re-create it's magic over here it should be great.
Trouble is, from the rumours I'm hearing, they've made a total hash of it (they've done things like invite non-comedienne Fern Britton on as a guest). In fact apparently its so clunky some people that work in the industry are running a book on whether ITV will pull it from its prime-time slot before its third week.
Well, I'm going to give it a go anyway. Ben Miller is on the first show and a very quick-witted Aussie called Hamish Blake who I have seen doing the Oz version of the show on YouTube (here's one such clip) is on too.
