Bremner Bird and Fortune is the ultimate satire show- it makes Dead Ringers look childish and inept. The production is excellent, with laughs flowing freely.

The writing is absolutely superb (for example, during one spoof film made in Iraq- "All scenes were shot on location- as were many taking part." which had me in stitches.) and the satire is literally up to the minute, with jokes being passed on subjects only hours old.

Rory Bremner is a real gem in the crown of impressionism- like a chameleon he can change to suit any character, his Tony Blair and George W Bush absolutely brilliant.

John Bird and John Fortune to feature as heavily- they appear in hilarious monologues that range from homophobic priests to loony generals, and sometimes in interviews- here, the writing is sharp but you would never tell, because of the delivery. It has to be seen to be believed. An example is a spoof of an MI6 conference room, where they are discussing whether the Saddam Hussein they caught was an actor- "I know! If we walk into his cell and suddenly say 'Act One, beginners!' and he says, 'Oh, where's my cossie'? we'll know for sure he's an actor!

This is comedy at its most intellectual and hard hitting; it makes for great conversation too. Watch it as you will never stop laughing!
