Joke's on us if we wring our hands about Jo Brand

While Jo Brand is pilloried for her unwise battery acid gag the ruinous japes of Farage, Johnson and Co go unpunished, writes Dani Garavelli.

Jo Brand's 'ill-judged' joke, the challenge of comedy

I'm still left with the feeling that Jo Brand simply got it wrong.

The Brexit Party should not try to play the PC set at its own censorious game.

Partridge & Farage would 'get on like a house on fire'

Fictional Tory-voting broadcaster would have been tempted to vote Ukip, says his creator Steve Coogan.

The Guardian, 20th February 2018

In the wake of the Ukip leader's resignation, this mockumentary follows Nige (Kevin Bishop) as he returns to Little England life, something that mainly consists of pints, puzzles, episodes of It Ain't Half Hot Mum and a sense of irrelevance. The premise is obviously to recast Farage as a lovable buffoon, but why anybody would want to humanise the poster boy for one of the most heinous ideologies in living memory isn't quite so clear.

Kevin Bishop went extreme Method in preparing role

BBC Two's fly-on-the-wall mockumentary Nigel Farage Gets His Life Back stars Kevin Bishop as the Ukip leader - another in a long line of actors impersonating celebrated politicians.
