Great Show with Quick Witted Comedians
6 January 2008 | by (Bristol, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have to say I completely disagree with the previous comment. Mock the Week brings modern humour for adults to our screens in a brilliant manner. All the comedians bar one are fantastic; Andy Parsons does have the most irritating voice and is incredibly predictable with what he is going to say.

Dara O'Briain is a brilliant presenter and ties the show together really well.

Frankie Boyle though unbelievably politically incorrect makes me laugh without fail every time he speaks.

Hugh Dennis and Russell Howard are fantastic as well, a personal favourite of mine was when Hugh voiced over a video clip of the Duke of Edinburgh - definitely a must see! The female guests who appear on the show are not funny in the slightest which is a real shame.

All in all this is show is brilliant with some of today's best comedians finding the funny sides of today's news.
