Spend a magical Christmas with a jolly bearded man. In a shed. Comedian and multimediagician Adam Buxton brings his distinctive mix of songs, animation and internet flotsam to this festive special. If you have never heard his hilarious take on bug-eyed YouTube commenters then you're in for a treat, but even longtime Adam & Joe fans should find something new.
In the best tradition of telly Christmas specials Adam is joined by some old friends, including poet Tim Key and Buxton's five-year-old daughter Hope. There'll be music and laughter and a hefty dose of nostalgia provided by...well, us, as Adam flicks through old copies of Radio Times. It'll be the best Christmas you've ever spent in a shed.Jonathan Holmes, Radio Times, 16th December 2014
Buxton's back, and just in time for Christmas, with this one-off magazine show. Festivity aside, there isn't much of a unifying theme, with an itinerary that features the presenter riffing on some Christmassy internet comments, a Tim Key poetry recital, and a performance by former Supergrass frontman Gaz Coombes. Not that it really matters with Buxton behind the decks, a man who has mastered the art of turning a load of random items into consistently amusing television.Rachel Aroesti, The Guardian, 16th December 2014
