Michaelmas Week 5
“Comedy Weekly” is Britain’s best loved televised topical panel show, but now it’s coming to an end. It's one hour before the final live performance, and all that needs to happen is for the panellists to arrive, know what they’re doing, and stay alive for the duration of the show. Except that’s harder than it might be when they are chronically disorganised and forgetful, mostly hate each other, and in one case are Britain’s rather controversial retiring Prime Minister. Still, at least they’ve got a spare panellist in reserve.
"Comedy Weakly" is a new comedy by Colin Rothwell, who wrote "Politics!" ('A happy combination of slapstick and wordplay' - Varsity), co-wrote "Spilt Milk" ('An evening of hi-jinks and absurdity' - Varsity), and learnt from the experience.
