The show I made with Michael Gove gives me nightmares

In 1992, Gove, David Baddiel and I presented the presciently titled A Stab In The Dark - a politics-based Channel 4 'yoof' programme. It was an absolute turkey.

Michael Gove was in a comedy called A Stab in the Dark

Vote Leave's EU referendum campaign felt like a stab in the dark at times. It's quite fitting then that Michael Gove once appeared in a TV series of the same title. And it was a politics-based comedy. The satire was actually a fairly serious affair in that it appeared on Channel 4 and also featured David Baddiel.
