As It Occurs To Me

As It Occurs To Me: Series 2, Episode 6

It's the 16th episode of AIOTM (AIOTM), 16 lost weekends of trying to satirise all comedy by producing a comedy show with no comedy in it. According to AM1975. As usual at this stage of the series, Richard is worried he is going mad and drunkenly wonders if he can convince some people who work in a motorcycle clothing shop that he has a motorcycle, to the amusement of only himself. Emma's dad is hanging out in bookshops enjoying his literary fame. Dan is wondering if he can get a laugh out of the King Herod bit that was written five minutes before the recording started, and Christian - whose guitar breaks just in time for his song - has a fine suggestion on how to solve the financial crisis.

We're also trying to pull down the statues in Trafalgar Square, wondering how Richard has maintained a 20 year career in comedy when he knows no jokes, suggesting a new commentator for the World Cup, and considering if we should all have taken some cocaines to get some much needed publicity for the show. The real questions are: did Rich think the motorcycle thing was funny, or did he write it on purpose so the end would work? And does he have a high-backed armchair? Cos if he does, what other rumours will be true?
