    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.

    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.
