I want that Irish character to come back...Coogan clearly LOVED doing him, he absolutely went for it. Particularly funny to have such a horrendously unflattering Irish character, and script, on English television at this exact moment in time. "HA HAAA" "Oh did I do the Haitch agin?"

I think this whole business with the Martin Brennan character is really instructive about the context of comedy and who the target is. In the show the target was Partridge/The Beeb/what British people are comfortable with.

However this ...


is just English people going "the Irish talk funny."

Fewer laugh out loud moments last night. Alan’s reactions to the mousy librarian lady swearing were very funny. The swollen lips were disturbing
