The Last Leg

The Last Leg performs an important public service in these troubled, divided times. Seriously, this is the time of week when people sit down and try to process the incomprehensible stupidity of our elected leaders and the madness of the world around us. Laughter provides the emotional catharsis to box up all that crap and dump it for the weekend.

Adam Hills, Josh Widdicombe and Alex Brooker can indulge themselves tonight with a review of seven days of craziness that has seen BoJo enter the Tory party leadership scramble (and then be summonsed for lying in public office), Donald Trump acknowledge that Russian interference contributed to his rise to the office of US president and North Korea execute officials for summit talks with Trump broke down.

As ever, the hashtag #isitok paves the way for the gang to round up and examine the week’s leading and most entertaining news stories via their acerbic wit, discussions and sketches. In this edition Harry Hill joins them to dissect the week’s events and talking points.

The Last Leg – Friday at 10.00pm on Channel 4.
