Having a day off post-Ayacon so naturally I’m watching kids comedy shows on BBC2. Particularly struck by the sketch comedy version the popular Horrible Histories books. The episode that just aired closed with this skit, in which George I, George II, George III and George IV are portrayed as a boy band.
Between this and “Sorry, I’ve Got No Head” that I caught some of over Xmas, kids sketch comedy is probably much better right now than what passes for adult sketch comedy (Mitchell & Webb excluded, and that shares writers/performers with both these kids shows anyway).
