Review - Comedians: Home Alone

I suppose a new generation of TV editors thinks this is how telly must work. They never watched it when they were growing up, of course, because they were glued to their phones.

Review - Comedians: Home Alone

This must have been one of the easiest comedy compilation shows to curate. With the live circuit in its induced coma, so many stand-ups are pumping out online content online that the whole internet is one giant audition room.

Comedians: Home Alone review

British comics have united to create this hit-and-miss homemade show, carried by the make-do-and-mend spirit.

Rebecca Nicholson, The Guardian, 1st June 2020

Comedians: Home Alone, review

Brilliant, miniature satires on the way we live now.

Sean O'Grady, The Independent, 1st June 2020

Funny people doing funny stuff is made for the internet.

TV preview - Comedians: Home Alone

Following E4's Remote Comedy From The Paddock the BBC launches with their own self-shot lockdown rapidfire sketch show. And on the basis of the first episodes - not that this is a competition - the BBC has the edge.
