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.

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.

Last Leg trio reveal what goes on behind the scenes

Political guests like Jeremy Corbyn, Ed Miliband and Nick Clegg are treated like "rock stars" and stay to hang out until 3am.

Radio Times, 26th January 2018

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.
