Used to be funny

Funny before 2017.

It’s not the Now Show anymore it’s the 2 Weeks Ago Show

No longer a topical news comedy and now an old news comedy. In their wisdom these are no longer the very latest episode but and old episode as you are being forced to use the BBC app if you want the new episode.
Still funny just not NOW and that’s the whole point in the show.
