like most of these shows, it depends who is on.....
29 August 2010 | by (oxford) – See all my reviews

I have to admit, this show really makes me laugh.

As someone who thought mock the week was just an excuse for comedians to show off their stand up (which it is) and who is tired of the 'comquizes' like QI, HIGTFN, Buzzcocks etc, I couldn't face another one.

Until it came on and I couldn't be bothered to change the channel, I watched it and found myself chortling. Why? Simple: by now, in it's third season, the chemistry between the two presenters is palatable. Marcus Brigstock and Rufus Hound have a wonderful sparring nature and John Sargent, despite the comic timing of a basset hound, anchors things beautifully.

Like all of these things, the show stands or falls on the quality of the guests. Having Jonny Vegas, Phil Jupitus, Reginald D Hunter etc - you can't really go wrong.

If you can catch the episode where Hound strips down to his altogether then bends over and shows his backside to Brigstock (while arguing for the benefits of naturalism) you will see what I mean.

Give this one a chance, it's getting stronger and stronger.
