TV Review: The Horne Section Television Programme

Horne doesn't feel like a natural front man for a conventional entertainment show - even though he looked the part until the camera panned down to reveal his gold trainers - but then again this wasn't a conventional entertainment show.

Bruce Dessau, Beyond The Joke, 25th May 2018

Taskmaster star Alex Horne and his five-piece jazz band, The Horne Section, have already hosted three successful series of their own show on BBC Radio 4 and enjoyed numerous sold-out runs at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Now this special two-hour variety show, recorded at the London Palladium, sees them showcase their signature combination of free-wheeling live music and comedy in front of the TV cameras. It also features guest performances from Nadine Coyle and Sara Pascoe.

The Horne Section Television Programme preview

When Dave commissions a proper series - and let's hope they do - an hour will be fine.

Regular guests at the 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown end of the comedy market, the Horne Section specialise in tolerable songs and spoofs. In this one-off they assume the spotlight, with guests including Nadine Coyle. Older relatives might allow themselves the odd small chuckle.
