Numberwrong

Great gag, that. So good I'll forget I didn't create it

An accusation of plagiarism is more damaging to the accuser than the accused, says Robert Webb.

Some answers about Dog Poker

That Mitchell and Webb Look Episode Two features some dogs playing late night poker, and as I'm the producer, I suppose I shouldn't have been surprised by the huge number of imaginary emails I've had about this part of the show, so I thought I'd use this blog to respond.

That Mitchell and Webb Look review

David Mitchell and Robert Webb return with the latest series of their BBC comedy. Clever writing, but the first show is a bit hit and miss.

Arlene Kelly, Suite 101, 21st July 2010

There are always moments of brilliance in the Mitchell And Webb weekly pot-shot at cultural mores. Last week it was David Mitchell shooting people who mispronounced basic words (hurrah!); this week it comes in The Gift Shop Sketch, which is a splendid parody of the constant trails and recaps you get in those threadbare US factual shows. And look out for Sketches We Couldn't Be Bothered To Write - a rather ingenious method of letting viewers' imaginations run riot.
