Preview - The Last Leg Christmas Special

The comic news program that shouldn't necessarily make you laugh with its controversial, often offensive, subject matter and awkward sly comments - but I can't deny it, the boys are funny!

Eloise Craven-Todd, On The Box, 23rd December 2016

Adam Hills, Josh Widdicombe and Alex Brooker offer up some pre-Christmas punch as the team look back over the year, and forward to the festive season. Grayson Perry brushes mince pie crumbs from the spare seat to join the Leggers as they sift through 2016's nice and naughty lists. Is it OK to hope they have uncovered at least a few morsels of merriness from the wreckage of a year that spawned Brexit, president-elect Trump and Cruz Beckham's debut single?

Mark Gibbings-Jones, The Guardian, 23rd December 2016

Adam Hills, Josh Widdicombe and Alex Brooker present another satirical outing for those not yet suffering terminal news-poisoning. Given the avalanche of deplorable happenstances in any given week, it's safe to say there'll be plenty to facepalm at, and edgy current affairs questions to ponder via the series' spinoff "#isitok" hashtag. Meanwhile, will new Last Leg pin-up Justin Trudeau possibly indulge the trio's overtures to come on the show and cheer us all up?

Preview - The Last Leg: US Election Special

The show that describes itself as: "Three guys with four legs try to make sense of the week", are going to have trouble making sense of what has happened in the USA today.

Ian Wolf, On The Box, 9th November 2016

Following its daily primetime slot during the Rio Paralympics - which culminated in Aussie host Adam Hills losing a medals-related bet and getting a rather wonky union jack dyed on his head - the irreverent news review show returns. Flanked by co-hosts Josh Widdicombe and Alex Brooker, Hills ensures that the humour is pointed but never mean, while the #isitok hashtag remains an object lesson in leveraging social media for laughs.

C4 strikes gold by seeing Paralympics funny side

Disability is treated as delicately off-limits by mainstream TV, but The Last Leg: Live from Rio has gone where others fear to tread.

Frances Ryan, The Observer, 18th September 2016

On the penultimate day of this year's Paralympic Games, Adam Hills, Josh Widdicombe and Alex Brooker bring their japes to an end with an unofficial closing ceremony. So far it's been a warm and inclusive accompaniment to the competition, with the #isitok hashtag leading to some taboo-busting conversation. Tonight they're joined by athletes including swimmer-turned-cyclist Sarah Storey and discus pro Dan Greaves.

Signed adverts during The Last Leg went down a storm

Viewers tuning into The Last Leg's latest broadcast from Rio on Friday night had another treat in store, in the shape of an ad break filled with sign language.
