At last Kevin Eldon who has been in pretty much all the best comedy of the past 20 years has finally got his own show.

And The Verdict?

Well its pretty good very surreal in the Bigtrain mould but the laughs are there most notably Hitler with George Martins Voice and the Mobile Phone song which rips the piss out of all those crap Europop groups .

Eldon is very funny and Julia Davis,James Fleet and Bill Bailey have popped up so far.

My only complaint why is this on at 10.30 on a Sunday night ?

It definitely slipped under the radar. Fair play BBC for still commissioning this sort of humour, from a veteran of the genre no less. Though I enjoyed it, if I'm being totally honest, I expect better. The first ep was hit and miss, which was the reason I only dipped in and out of the second one. Nice to see Buxton in there though!

I watched the first episode, which I thought was ok-ish,but the second one did very little for me.
But my issues are more geared towards the BBC rather than Kevin Eldon, who is a respected comedian who has worked on endless top shows ie Big Train (underrated),Alan Partridge to name just two.

The BBC comedy shows are just so bland and mild on humor that its frankly,at times,embarrassing.They either don't seem to want to invest in any edge or the people coming through at the moment aren't that good.

I've had hangovers that were funnier.

Yep - mostly disappointed, although it does have the odd smirkable moment.

If nothing else, it's nice to see Simon Munnery back on TV (now there's a comedian who deserves some more air time), if only in minor supporting roles.

I think the main problem with it is the sheer number of writers involved (if memory serves, none of it is written by Eldon himself), and most of them are new. Arthur Matthews was on top of the list, and Graham Linehan was thanked (or summat), but I wouldn't be surprised if most of the material was actually the work of the newbies.

It's, weirdly, both fresh and dated at the same time.

Loved that. Thought it was quite inspired.

Of course, the youth of today who haven't seen the original interview would probably be a bit 'WTF was that?'

The beefeater sketch(es) also made me chuckle.

I'll need to watch it again, but having coincidentally watched The Filth and the Fury a couple of days before, I'm pretty sure they used the original interview audio and just lip synched to it.

The crew names in the credits for that sketch were fantastic, though.

What I'm finding is that the sketches sound great on paper, but in execution aren't actually all that - for example the "what Neil Armstrong really said when he stepped onto the moon" sketch sounded brilliant in the TV guide, but when it came to watching it I didn't even smile.

It could explain why he's spent 99% of his career to date as a supporting player...

No they spoke the words because Peter Seravnowitz was playing Bill Grundy and i could recognise his tone .

Yep, you're dead right - watched it again last night. Kevin "as" Johnny Rotten was the give away.

It's amazingly well done.

He's been featured quite a bit on Stewart Lee's Alternative Comedy Experience on Comedy Central the last few weeks. He's a very funny guy. Surprisingly so is Tony Law (also on it quite a bit) who I'd only ever seen being quite unfunny on comedy panel shows.

Sadly haven't got Comedy Central.

Funnily enough, I saw Tony Law support Stewart Lee a few years ago (Stew made a point at the time that he hand-picked him). I have to say, though, apart from one incredibly funny bit about South Africans and Nandos, his slot and delivery was VERY mainstream. Since then, he seems to have re-invented himself (weird hair and clothes and all) as one of these alternative new-new-wave weirdo comedians. Which is getting a bit passe now - he's about 3 years too late with that.

But I've been a big fan of Munnery's for donkeys, all the way back to his (intentionally) awkward appearances as Alan Parker on Friday and Saturday Live. One of the few comedians I would love to see live, but have not had a chance (him and Daniel Kitson).
