This week’s Heresy…
Tuesday, 12 May 2009
... might be the funniest episode so far. We’ve got a trio of comedians, Jeremy Hardy, Sue Perkins and Dave Gorman. Normally I’d try to avoid having three comedians at once, but these three are all in that very special category of comics who can engage with the arguments, have a proper conversation and be funny at the same time. None of them is trying to work in “material”, they just create brilliant jokes on the hoof along the way.
They’ve got some pretty meaty topics to deal with too - a current thorny issue, a perennial problem, and a philosophical question.
The received opinions that Hardy, Perkins and Gorman must set out to destroy are:
ONE THIRD WORLD BABY SHOULD BE ENOUGH FOR ANY CELEBRITY
THERE ARE TOO MANY STUDENTS
IT IS BETTER TO REGRET SOMETHING YOU HAVE DONE THAN SOMETHING YOU HAVEN’T.
