The Last Leg: Re-United Kingdom


#1

Something really unseemly about this. I appreciate the spirit of it, but having Cameron and Blair sharing messages of unity, and Major saying “gay people, well, they’re practically normal now” is fucking rank.


#2

Sounds grim, although it’s not a format I can ever really enjoy, whether it’s this, that Lauren Laverne show or 8 out of 10 cats etc.


#3

My mate made me watch The Last Leg live at Latitude one year, it was excruciatingly unfunny and it annoyed me how much everybody else was laughing at it. That’s all I know about it.


#4

Andy Burnham has just introduced The Courteeners as his “band of the moment”.


#5

I don’t like Josh Widdicombe, I don’t particularly think Alex Brooker is that funny - Adam Hills can be sometimes.

This one does sound like a particular horror-show.


#6

You what?


#7

As the mayor of Manchester, he’s contractually obliged to be overly enthused about below-average indie dross.


#8

I’m paraphrasing, but only just.


#9

How do they keep selling out massive venues in the north?


#10

not for me, clive.


#11

didn’t mind the last leg when it was a happy-go-lucky unfunny #banter show

however it’s now become some self-appointed fight against evil, probably fueled by the stuff they did on the paralympics and it’s pretty fucking cringeworthy. the worse is where they try and make a sarcastic comment about politics and come off as neither funny or clever. but the worst is where they do a rap or a dance or something. not seen tonight’s show, but it seems we’ve reached peak the last leg.

also please stop with the manc bashing, most of us are alright.


#12

I fucking hate Josh Widdicombe.


#13

Quite like Josh Widdicombe tbf


#14

Widdicombe and Brooker seem nice enough but aren’t very funny. Hills is fucking dreadful


#15

If it hadn’t been for the Paralympics the Last Leg would still be that easy-going light entertainment comedy show it was when it first started.


#16

I’m going to level with you…I thought it was created purely for the Paralympics and was quite surprised it was given what I thought was a second non-sport related series.
