Quotes

[opening lines: in a comedy sketch, Dave Allen is dressed as the baby Jesus in the manger, with Mary and Joseph looking fondly at him; a group of Catholic nuns burst into the stable]
Nun: That's enough of your happy-clappy love nonsense. We've got this covered. We're in charge now, and we'll make sure you get a rigorous Catholic education.
Dave Allen: Oh shit!

Great story ruined by chronology
2 April 2018 | by deanbowkettSee all my reviews

A comedy genius with an incredible story ruined by a simplistic telling. Performances by Aidan Gillan, Ely Solan, Ferdia Walsh-Peelo and Senan Jennings were great but also ruined by the flashbacks and flash forwards. A great story ruined by the production
