The Jim Davidson interview

In his most high profile interview for Broadway Baby to date, Martin Walker talks to controversial comedian, Jim Davidson. In a no holds barred extended interview they discuss Chalky White, Brian Dowling, Paul Sinha, the war in Iraq, Tony Blair, gay marriage, Davidson's favourite and least liked comedians and his forthcoming appearance at the Edinburgh Fringe. The interview is forthright and names are named. Contains repeated use of strong language.

The idiot-speak in Anna Crilly and Katy Wix's spoof The Apprentice is frothing nicely: "Business in the workplace can help achieve synergy for tomorrow," says a gormless team-member. Or, my favourite, "Can I just answer that myself with a 'no'?" smarms Wix, as a vacuous project manager. Some sketches work better - much better - than others. Crilly and Wix as two butch quadbike instructors and an obscene game show fronted by Brian Dowling are weak and over-long. But Olden Roadhaus, the foul-mouthed German version of Antiques Roadshow, is a winner.
