did we have a british tv show thread recently?

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We'll kick your ass in

I thought the Tom Segura special was funny. Hadn’t seen his stuff before.

Best stand-up I've seen in a while.


My sister made me go see Josie Long once and he was supporting. He was good, she was crap.

Forgot this was the British tv thread...

I watched some of the James Acaster, and I thought he was more likeable than laugh-out-loud funny.

I got a lot of big laughs out of it.

Really well written shows and clever without the pretentious smugness of someone like Stewart Lee

Josie Long was great when she first came up like 10 years ago but never really evolved beyond that point.

What other decent British comics are there at the moment?

I feel most panel shows etc are unbearable so don't have much exposure, the only thing I watch is Taskmaster.

Lots of fantastic UK standups at the moment.

Daniel Kitson
James Acaster
Tim Key
Lou Sanders
John-Luke Roberts
Joseph Morpurgo
Katherine Ryan
Fern Brady
Sara Pascoe
John Kearns
Lolly Adefope
Demetriou Siblings
Bisha K. Ali
Spencer Jones
John Robins
Mae Martin

(Some excellent shows I've seen in the last year)

Also Aunty Donna, who are neither UK nor strictly stand-up, but was one of the best nights out I've had in a long time.

The Acaster specials are great. I never laugh as much when it's on a screen, but you can see the craft coming through. Pat Springleaf is such a good idea

I don't normally enjoy live stand-up very much but I caught Andrew O'Neill's Black Magick Fun Hour at the fringe last summer and it was brilliant

Went in without knowing anything about him and so glad I did, I think he's touring the UK with it at the moment

Does anyone listen to Athletico Mince? Bob Mortimer doing some of the best work of his career. The Peter Beardsley stuff basically makes me cry with laughter every episode. Also (and everyone offers this disclaimer) you don't need to know anything about football. I don't know anything about football.

Just started on this. Very fucking funny. Bob is a lot funnier than the other bloke but still pretty consistent throughout.

Bob's songs are amazing. Ballard of Barry Homeowner has a major Pulp vibe

What's the view on Humans?

I'm being forced to catch up but I can't help thinking it's a collection of interesting ideas/black mirror jokes strung together by a stupid storyline and basically no characters to care about.
