Trivia

Whilst promoting the special on The One Show (2006), Tracey Ullman was presented with a statement from German Chancellor Angela Merkel's office. It read: "Thank you very much for your email requesting a statement from Chancellor Merkel for the hilarious Tracey Ullman. I am very sorry, but due to the Chancellor's extremely busy schedule, she's in Brussels right now, and the G20 summit is just around the corner, she will not be able to send the requested statement."

User Reviews

Superb!
23 June 2018 | by rebel5See all my reviews

Tracey Ullman is back with a vengeance in this new comedy series! Nothing is off-limits, no one is safe! This is arguably the best satirical comedy since "Spitting Image." As many comedians get softer with age, Tracey just gets bolder and edgier. She is, in the words of Dame Judi Dench, a national treasure!
