Great Wall of Comedy



Jo Brand


Team Captains: Barry Cryer and Rebecca Front


STV Productions for GOLD, 16 June to 14 July 2013 (5 episodes in 1 series)


Sometimes, the UKGameshows editors watch yet another panel show about comedy, and think, "That's forty minutes we're never getting back", and don't even have the energy to properly rubbish the lazy format.

So here's how Creamguide did it.

19.30 Jo Brand's Great Wall of Comedy
We saw this last week but to be honest we couldn't really be bothered to stick around til the end. Basically, as you may have expected it's little more than an opportunity to string clips together of sitcoms, all of which are coincidentally currently showing on Gold, with the panellists being prompted to deliver a few jokes and anecdotes in between, which isn't much of a concept, especially as it's edited with a pair of blunt scissors.
The sofas, and the titular wall.

Tedious anecdotes, memories of incredibly obscure plot points, fewer questions per hour than The Million Pound Drop Live, and the commercial break comes as a merciful release.


"I'm missing Tipping Point for this?" Oh, that was us.
