Comedy.co.uk Awards 2017 shortlist

The shortlisted TV and radio shows for the Comedy.co.uk Awards 2017 have been announced. 60 programmes are in the running for the Comedy Of The Year title.

British Comedy Guide, 15th January 2018

The enduringly likable panel show trundles cheerfully on. This week's guests for the good-natured fib-fest are Stephen Mangan, Mark Bonnar, Sheila Hancock and Anita Rani but, as ever, the show truly hits its stride when Lee Mack and David Mitchell lock horns and engage their counterintuitive comic chemistry. There are vanishingly few things we can rely on in today's bewildering world but it seems this programme is one of them.

Would I Lie to You? review

This opening episode was fine, but nothing really stood out.

Ian Wolf, On The Box, 20th November 2017

There are those who look down on this fib-based panel show, but it is capable of delivering sustained belly-laughs like few others - not least when Bob Mortimer is on. No changes in format for this new series, whose guests are Jo Brand, Kimberly Wyatt of Pussycat Dolls, David Baddiel and Ed Balls, now well into reinventing himself as a TV personality, and the comedy of whose surname does not go unnoticed.
