In another brave stab at resurrecting the sketch show for the YouTube age, David Walliams’s guest is Sheridan Smith, an actress with funny bones, skill and range. The material however is a trifle mixed.
Smith’s struggling cruise singer aiming to impress an agent and the pair’s Barbie and Ken wannabees feel a little aimless and mean-spirited. But game show What’s She Cross About? hits the mark, as does an oddly affecting monologue from Smith’s Bertha Stoat, a woman unfathomably but blissfully in love with her grotesque and boring husband.
The best moment by miles is Carry On Up the Sexual Assault Tribunal, a sharp modern takedown of a British comedy staple.
Multi-talented thespian Sheridan Smith takes the fateful step of agreeing to become David Walliams' latest `friend', transforming into a real-life Barbie doll, facing an unlikely dilemma while filming a swords-and-sorcery epic, and hitting all the wrong notes as a cruise ship singer with a chip on her shoulder. David and Sheridan also play bickering husband-and-wife contestants on an ill-fated game show and feature in a politically correct parody of 1970s Carry On films, Carry On Up the Sexual Harassment Tribunal.
