4 June 2003 | by (Great Britain) – See all my reviews

Post-pub TV at its best. The programme is basically a series of bizarre bets, where the viewer is invited to bet on what the outcome will be. Recurring bets (and characters) include Mr Shake Hands Man (guess how long he can keep shaking the hand of famous celebrity) and Lady One Question (she only asks one question to celebrity, bet how long celeb will last before wandering off).

Hilarious voiceovers, suitably Oriental graphics and sound effects, and many celebrities (current and old) making idiots of themselves in the name of gambling opportunities. Surprisingly compulsive viewing!
