Harry & Paul

Series 4 - Episode 2

Review by:
Jane Rackham

If you’re disappointed there’s no Dragons’ Den tonight, take comfort in Harry Enfield and Paul Whitehouse’s version, which is almost as good. Other highlights in an undeniably patchy edition (the ongoing Canal Five sketch is a stinker) include Whitehouse’s remarkable transformation into a physically accurate Larry David from Curb Your Enthusiasm and their take on a Mike Leigh film that has Morwenna Banks doing a superb impersonation of Alison Steadman in Abigail’s Party.

Funniest sketch of the night award goes once again to the Minor Royals with Enfield politely asking a homeless man who’s sleeping rough whether he’s doing his Duke of Edinburgh.

About this programme

2/6. Harry Enfield and Paul Whitehouse feature in more comedy sketches. The Minor Royals are confused by a homeless man, an office worker is driven to distraction by a feckless lad on work experience, and in When Life Was Simpler the chaps plan a trip to the North Pole. With guest appearances by Victoria Wood and Charlie Higson.
