Series 1, Episode 1

Some of the sharpest wits in British comedy go up against one another, with participants attempting to humorously 'take down' their opponent to win the 'battle'. It's Tom Allen v Suzi Ruffell and Phil Wang v Ed Gamble.


Suzi and Phil were the winners. The joke of the episode was declared as Phil Wang's "Ed's girlfriend is such a dog I tried to eat her".
