Not John Oliver ,

Scottish Derivation

I love this ridiculous show more than is sensible. Thank you Arnie, Paula, Carolyn, Barry, Francine, Tony, Murray, Flash, Lenore, Gregg, Dave, and everyone else for showing up.

Says you!

This panel show is terrific because it makes you think, is often hilariously funny and challenges you a little bit as well.Also they have great local music from every venue they visit. I love it

I miss Richard

This is the closest thing I’ve found to the wonderful panel shows from the U.K., however, it’s just not the same without the original host and creator- of course, he’s a hard act to follow. But why do I get the feeling that the new host would rather be somewhere else? And there doesn’t seem to be any love lost between the panelists and host, either.
What keeps me listening is the welcome addition of Deb and Erin. They are genuinely clever without all the snark and grasping puns.
