British Comedy Guide, 22nd November 2016

It was the final programme, The Tim Vine Chat Show, which had me laughing the most. It's not a sitcom, it's a stand-up show, and its energy really fizzes from the radio.

Tim Vine rattles out gags like Tommy Cooper: so many that, even if you don't think they're all funny, the cumulative effect is hilarious. He even forces in some awful jokes when he interviews members of the audience, and gets the whole room to join in some terrible catchphrases. It's a lovely way to spend half an hour.
