very little funny bits. But Eddie comes back and is wonderful as ever.

It was really bad. Uncomfortably so.

Weird I thought it would be good.

The only one I liked was the Australian singer / comedian.

well she was introduced by fearne Cotton. I wasn't expecting fireworks!

I gave up and went to bed - just not funny. Shame I missed Eddie Izzard, but I just wasn't willing to sit through the rest of it just for that.

I saw it yesterday. Think I managed a smile. Only stuck with it cos I was doing my hair (takes ages + had hair cream all over hands therefore no channel changing).

God yes it was terrible, even Eddie Izzards bit wasn't that funny, so glad I hadn't actually paid for it.

None of them really had enough time to get into their stride, did they - I kept being left wondering whether they'd cut out the punchlines of things.

the secret policeman's ball from the 70's with monty python and rowan atkinson and tom robinson was absolutely fantastically brilliant.

the best.

Frank Skinner was awful, just awful I felt sorry for him.

AbstractMouse Mon 06-Oct-08 22:25:26

Eddie was bloated and samey too, and I speak as one who loved him.

It was indeed a load of bollocks. And Eddie Izzard looks sooooooo old. I found that very depressing.

Now stop watching TV and hoover, you lazy git.

It was utter utter utter utter utter utter crap.

Frank Skinner was just appalling. I mean, he's not top of my Comedy Tree as it is but... was it my imagination or did he start telling a joke that just went absolutely nowhere? And he just sort of left it, halfway through?

Izzard - crap
IT Crowd - crap
Mitchell & Webb - crap
Corden & wotsit - complete embarrassing student crap

As you were.
