Only watchable because of Kitty Flanagan and Tom Gleeson
13 September 2018 | by grantssSee all my reviews

Funny and watchable only because of Kitty Flanagan and Tom Gleeson.

Charlie Pickering's role seems to be to score cheap points and applauses from the shallow left-leaning ABC audience. He seems to fancy himself as another John Oliver, mixing (attempted) humour with reporting and analysis of problems in society. However, his humour is of the cheap, one-dimensional shots variety (as, unfortunately, Oliver's has become) and the reporting is incredibly shallow.

The real stars of the show are Kitty Flanagan and Tom Gleeson. Both are incredibly funny in an over-the-top sort of way and don't have to rely on political bs to make an impression. Fast forward through Charlie Pickering, watch Kitty and Tom.
