This cheerful, topical comedy is never off air for long - and with world affairs teetering on the brink of madness so much of the time at the moment, that is probably not surprising. The genial but incisive Adam Hills hosts, while Alex Brooker and Josh Widdicombe comprise the show's regular comedy backbone. As ever, it is likely that the special celebrity guests - keen to stretch their satirical chops as a form of protest - will provide the incentive to watch. Increasingly, something of a Friday evening institution.

John Robinson, The Guardian, 26th January 2018
