Tom Craine regales us with the story of Sir Walter Raleigh (Jack Whitehall).

Press

The return of a wilfully stupid format, which asks comedians to relate tales of yore while plastered. Other performers then star in scenes reflecting exactly what the soused comic has said, lip-syncing to any dialogue. It's a way to make improvised comedy less reliable. Not much comes of Jack Whitehall and Michelle Keegan as Walter Raleigh and Elizabeth I, but Robin Hood and Maid Marian, played by Mathew Baynton and Emma Bunton to the blazingly profane imaginings of Tom Davis, is sensational.

Jack Seale, The Guardian, 3rd February 2016
