The Comic Strip have been away for a while now so it was important that they returned with a bang and The Hunt For Tony Blair is a decent return to form. Starring Stephen Mangan as the former PM, who’s on the run from the police (Robbie Coltrane) who are pursuing him for various murders. The running gag is that Blair keeps killing people and justifying it to himself as, though regrettable, the right decision at the time. With a great support cast (Jennifer Saunders as Thatcher and Nigel Planer as Mandleson are inspired) this is one to watch..
The Comic Strip Presents – The Hunt For Tony Blair is on Channel 4 this evening (Friday 14/10/11) at 9pm
