Time for an election topical comedy round up as the real thing is as boring as a focus group watching paint drying in a light industrial unit in the W Mids.
The moles are loving Ballot Monkeys – entirely set on the Labour, Tory, Lib and UKIP battle buses – the Labour one with her, and her, from Episodes is particularly good, as is the barminess of the UKIP one. A couple of zingers per episode def. and Ben Miller reeks authentic desparation on the void that is the Lib Dem bus. The Jack Dee election panel show however is completely inessential, just about passing muster as an 11pm R4 show but not prime time telly in any way. Not even a snappy chairs intro for Jack this time around. Newzoids – spitting image for the iphone 6 generation – is hit and miss, but they have a great handle on Ed as he looks like a Sesame Street puppet.
