TV review: Comedians Giving Lectures

It's a fun and diverting half-hour of post-Taskmaster entertainment.

Comedians Giving Lectures review

It's definitely a shame that this first episode was so patchy, as it's a show which definitely contains promise and it'd be a real shame if people don't give it a chance because this was only just above average fare.

Alex Finch, Comedy To Watch, 18th September 2019

TV Review: Comedians Giving Lectures

It's a good idea and it makes sure that stand-ups can't easily fall back on their own familiar set. I just wish Sara Pascoe did little more than exchange banter with her guests when she introduces them and then chat a bit when she tots up the scores at the end.

Bruce Dessau, Beyond The Joke, 18th September 2019
