The Daily Mail is a terrible idea.

Why on earth BBC4? That's where you put documentaries about the motorway system.

We’ll know after the Christmas special if a series is a good idea. I do think they should have waited till it screens to announce this. Removes a bit of the novelty of a one off.

Still, I assume it’ll be good fun and this format is the best suited to them. I think they’ve wanted to do a sketch show for ages, perhaps calling it Big Night Out was the only way they could get it going.

I didn't, because I get all my news from CaB. Thanks! I hope it's better than the special.

Yes but the one about building the M62 was truly hilarious.

Went to see them show a couple of episodes of this at the BFI last week.

Loved both eps, a step up from the special from what I can remember of it

I hope so. There’s being deliberately ramshackle and then there’s just being in pieces on the floor.

do they think Bob is going to die and they're just getting as much as they can in? He's always on that crap panel show, there was the fishing show, Radio 6, now this. Not complaining like.

David Tennant must have been terminally ill in 2009 by that logic. Great recovery though!

Would I Lie To You? He's absolutely brilliant on it, and while the show is highly dependent on the guests it's the best panel show going now. You also missed the Athletico Mince podcast which is the best thing he does.

Unfortunately it is unlistenable due to his profoundly untalented, sycophantic, coat-tails riding co-host.

Astonishing to think that of all the potential comedy partners for Bob out there, he went with someone whose only credit in life is stealing something from CaB and passing it off as his own.

They're vaguely similar, but this seems like a bit of a stretch.

Vaguely similar?  They are identical in concept (lists of shit stuff followed by GET IN GRAVE or the far worse GET IN THE SEA), and the latter followed too soon after Boston Crab’s version for it to be a coincidence.

If the guy was coming up with anything else of worth one might argue that he’s a well-spring of decent ideas and good humour but he isn’t; it’s just this one thing which happens to be identical to Boston Crab’s own version with a word changed into two words - fucking the rhythm of the original, by the way.

I wouldn’t mind, but off the back of it he has a GET IN THE SEA book and he is somehow working with Bob Mortimer and trying to pull him down to his level.

"Jump in a lake" and similar have been common phrases for years. I find CaB back slapping pretty grotesque.

back slapping

I’m not Boston Crab.


Anyway, I didn’t mean to derail the thread with this; just responding to the Athletico Mince recommendation.  Let’s leave this discussion here.
