Nothing funny

Posted on

I usually feel that the Now Show is a slightly worse version of The News Quiz, which in turn is Have I Got News For You without the balancing spice of right wing panellists… though, to be fair to the News Quiz, it has Sandi Toksvig. If they could just get her to be the full time host of HIGNY, and do it twice a week – perhaps once on radio – then all would be well in terms of news satire.

But, although the Now Show isn’t always that funny, yesterday it did a little song that was depressingly true, called something along the lines of, “There’s nothing funny in the news today.”

That sums it up really. Interesting times, but not very funny.
