TV review: The Stand Up Sketch Show, series 2 episode 4

If they cut down the show to four comedians, giving them five or six minutes each, and made sure that the routines they wished to perform actually benefited from being acted out then this could be a great show. But as it is, it just doesn't work three quarters of the time, the visual element all too often adds absolutely nothing to the material, and the choice of comedian really needs to be improved upon if it's to be a show worthy of anyone's time.
