Risus Sardonicus

Shall we encourage the BBC not to make a series out of Michael McIntyre at the Coliseum ? It took nearly four hours to record the 58 minutes and 15 seconds that made the screen. The production company  - an unholy alliance between McIntyre, Dragon Peter Jones and Mr Holly Willoughby -threw a pretty old-fashioned kitchen sink at an audience of over 2,000. Hoofers from the (touring) cast of Anything Goes, a Chinese ballet balancing couple, an American card trickster, cute piano playing kids, Catherine Tate doing a sanitised "Nan" in the balcony, and insufficient Bill Bailey and Eddie Izzard. Plus Ella Henderson and the woman with a wig hat.

I shall fill in the overnights if and when they arrive. Will the cost per viewer figure in tv's accounts for the last financial year, or this, Danny ?
