The Last Leg

Series 2 - Episode 1

There were many triumphs of the sporting summer but one of the less trumpeted was Channel 4’s late-night Paralympic chat show. Free-wheeling and sparky, it felt like a new, relaxed angle on the comedy “gang show”, with Josh Widdicombe and Alex Brooker backing up suave Australian host Adam Hills. Their reward is a series of non-Paralympic, Friday-night slots in which to “celebrate all that is best about Britain”. And of course they’ll still be asking their fateful, PC-skirting question, “Is it OK..?”

About this programme

1/9. After winning plaudits and critical acclaim for their show during the Paralympic Games, comedian Adam Hills and regular panellists Josh Widdicombe and Alex Brooker return to provide a comic review of the significant moments of the past seven days. There will also be live studio challenges and recorded segments each week, including Alex's quest to participate in the Rio Paralympics in 2016. Actor Idris Elba (Luther, The Wire) is this week's guest.
