A stage. An audience. Three stand-up acts. TV comedy doesn’t get simpler: half an hour of gags at a time of the week when that’s ideal. The series returns with Dara O Briain at the helm and his ten minutes are typically brilliant. Nobody turns an embarrassment into a golden comedy routine like Dara — in this case, his attempt to surf on Bondi Beach. After Dara comes radical ventriloquist Nina Conti, who turns two members of the audience into her dummies in an inspired piece of improv.
