Oh, God, that is great news. I wonder if they can get the rights to TMWRNJ?

 

Yeah, I was wondering that, too. I'd presume this will increase the chances of Fist Of Fun popping up on Dave or more likely Comedy Central too.

 

I'd like to see one of the Mary Whitehouse Experience crew do something like this as well. I don't think Rob Newman would go for it, but David Baddiel or Hugh Dennis might.

David Baddiel said on Twitter a while ago that the BBC have been wanting to bring out a MWE DVD for years, but as you suspected, Rob Newman won't sign a release for it.

It doesn't say "free crisps" on his gig listings :(

Really like the new format tweak of the cut aways to Armando Ianucci (sp?) giving him a bollocking. And Lee seems more confident in his performance. Maybe he's getting paid more or has come to terms with looking like a contracted Mr Fantastic
