Would I lie to you about the greatest comedy on TV?

It is hard at times like this to hang on to your sense of fun. It can feel, as crisis leads to ray of hope and back again to crisis, as if there is nothing left to laugh about.

Why should I make wild claims for what is, after all, a parlour game, a panel show, a bit of fluff? Because now more than ever we need to seize on to what unites us.
