British Comedy Guide, 21st January 2019

If you only watched one thing on Hogmanay before the bells I do hope you made it The Last Leg, which is very much not tottering on that eponymous limb. In so many ways this was the perfect end to an often laughable year, and featured no pomp and precious little politics. Instead, just a studio full of genuinely funny and irrepressible guests, a gospel choir, the magnificent house band led by Alex Horne and, chiefly, the near-alchemical chemistry and interplay between Adam Hills and Alex Brooker. And, on the filmed sections in Austria, the establishment of Brooker as the first disabled person to descend an Olympic-standard double-luge run was, away from the laughter and the cavorting, actually rather impressive.

The Last Leg rings in the new year with a lineup that includes Katherine Ryan, Richard Ayoade and Nish Kumar. There will also be a look at Alex Brooker's attempt to become the first disabled man to take part in the double luge.

Last Leg viewers threaten to boycott after Corbyn rant

The Last Leg viewers weren't happy with last night's instalment following host Adam Hills' rant against Jeremy Corbyn. The comedian appeared to suggest there is a "cult" surrounding the Labour leader but viewers felt it was a "smear campaign" against him.

Why Adam Hills is still waiting for Last Leg's impact

Adam Hills says the real impact of 2012's The Last Leg won't be seen until 2020, adding it "accidentally" broke barriers about disability.

Helen Bushby, BBC, 23rd July 2018

Such is the turbulence of 2018 that it's impossible to second guess the contents of a topical talkshow. What on earth will Trump or May do next? What seems safe to assume, however, is that Adam Hills, Josh Widdicombe and Alex Brooker's comic chemistry will guide us through whatever fresh horrors are afoot.
