Mitchell and Webb are doing a Look warm up at the Drill hall on the 13th July, free tickets through bbc.co.uk. I cant go as I've got the Dreadfuls recording on the same day, why does everything happen at once ? :x

Fat Pig spoilers!

I HATED THE ENDING! Seriously, I shouted out "That can't be IT!!!" completely involuntarily. I mean, I know it's probably realistic, Robert's character was a total snake/wimp but narratively I wanted SOME kind of closure after investing so much emotion into those characters. Not just... ending! Waaaaaaaa!

Also, what was with the American accents!?!?

Its an American play set in America hence the accents and also i think that was what Neil Labute wanted. The ending was a bit meh, it needed something

It could easily have been relocated to the UK. There was only one reference to America that I could see - the office that Helen was supposedly from. It seemed to jar that it was American. All their accents sounded false. Rob's certainly wobbled a lot.

David Mitchell is on Question Time tonight. I'm actually REALLY looking forward to it - he should give most of those politicians a run for their money with his insane but intelligent long-winded rants!

Ooh yeah. He'd be a great politician I reckon! He could make politics popular again! (If it ever was.)

Drill Hall Times was good last night. Lots of new sketches done, mostly all really good. One sketch pretty much everyone agreed the last tiny bit had to go, it made a good joke go rather naff. I';ll write in tiny writing tomorrow sketches that were done. I was quite vague but tried my hardest to remember everything
