Hypothetically speaking........
24 February 2019 | by neilstrahanSee all my reviews

There are no more quality comedians available to host an abomination of a quiz show that makes John Richardson's ultimate worrier look like comedy gold and Dave have to fill a time slot vacuum created by reruns of top gear becoming to expensive what do you do? Well you get the next best thing a guy who has some experience of hosting on a comedy show all be it as third fiddle on the brilliant last leg. And they only really let him look at the internet to find funny clips. So was there a correct answer James? if you get as far as to know what that means then you are definitely in danger of your eyeballs melting) I would have put an answer but by time it came to that part I had switched over to watch Romesh Ranganathan's and Russel Howard's mums travel round the world completing tasks set by the task master. Sorry josh but stick to making jokes about how you mistaken for a hobbit.
