August without Edinburgh fringe

Covid-19 has cancelled the annual jamboree, leaving performers - and our comedy critic - bereft. What does the festival mean to them and how will it change?

TV review: Mister Winner series 1 episode 6

I really don't want to be too harsh on the show, there's nothing intrinsically wrong with it, but it repeatedly takes a scenario which could lead to amusement but then just doesn't do anything that funny or inventive with it. While normally I'd hope that a second series might resolve the problems the first had but it seems a deliberate choice to be such a mundane affair, so in this case I hope it isn't given one and the cast go on to bigger and far better things instead.

Mister Winner, BBC Two, review

Spencer Jones indulges in Mr Bean-ish pratfall after pratfall.

TV review: Mister Winner, series 1 episode 1

Given how much of a fan I am of Spencer and Pearman I will watch at least one more episode, but if it wasn't for the talented cast then I'm not sure I'd bother.

Mister Winner, BBC2 review

Gentle comedy about one of life's losers.

Mister Winner, review

This good-natured comedy is just the tonic we need right now.

Anita Singh, The Telegraph, 25th March 2020

Mister Winner, episode 1 review

Spencer Jones is one of the funniest, most inventive comedians to have emerged in recent years - which is why it's so disappointing to see him in this most lukewarm of sitcoms. It's like putting Lewis Hamilton behind the wheel of a Reliant Robin.
