Sorry, but I thought The Wrong Door was *terrible*. Really unfunny. Disappointing considering so much live sketch comedy these days is brilliant.

They should have given the dreadfuls the CGI budget and let them do a Victorian Greenscreen Extravaganza. The "Sin City" of victorian comedy.

Did this have Policeman Andy from torchwood? I got all scared.
Yes, I must have been VERY drunk when I watched.
Apparently he's much more famous for being a comedian than an actor, he was on some random bollocks thing I saw last night, commenting on horrid couples.

The wrong door was awful wasn't it? They went all out on cgi and forgot that it was supposed to be comedy. At least Pappy's T.V was on after it to bring the funnergy levels back up.

I didn't mind The Wrong Door. Few hit and misses in there but still not bad. Hated Thom's sketch, that was crap though

Dreadfuls are doing Faversham forever at the Leicester Square theatre on 13th October. There's a few good shows on there as part of the Big Joke festival http://www.leicestersquaretheatre.com/events.asp

Emailed my mates who saw it in Edinburgh and emailing someone else to see when Ralfe Band are playing. I really hope they don't clash *prays*

Radio show

Postby scabbylil » Mon Sep 08, 2008 10:27 pm

Hi, I just wondered if any of you had heard of a radio show that David Reed and Humphrey Ker are meant to be in. It was on BBC Radio Scotland on Friday, "Coming Up Next" it was called. I think the episode is on BBC iplayer. I missed it myself, but I thought someone else may have heard it?

Thanks for the info. I've just tried to listed to it on Iplayer but they've cocked it up, it's playing a new programme instead of the show. At least it was only the first episode. The 2nd goes out this Friday at 6.10 on BBC Scotland so hopefully I'll be able to listen to that one.

I've not been able to listen to it either Tara it was on too early for me to listen to it live and when I've tried on iplayer something else always plays.
I got my tickets for the If.com show yesterday managed to get front row but only after a bit of haggling, the tickets they were offering me were row J to start with.
