Did ever a panel game generate so much pure, simple comedy pleasure with apparently so little effort? In this episode, most of the claims that guests are required to make are laughably implausible. But the laughable bit is what matters. As Lee Mack keeps up the pretence that he can tell someone’s head size just by looking at it, or Katherine Parkinson maintains that when she was 15 she thought Wombles were real, the laughs tumble in thick and fast – particularly when David Mitchell goes off on a flight of fancy about how Uncle Bulgaria got his glasses.
Louie Spence adds a brilliantly lewd edge to proceedings, and there are unexpected twists on the usual running gags, as Mitchell accuses Mack of intellectual snobbery (yes, that way round) and Mack wonders if Mitchell might actually shop at Argos.
Comedy actress Katherine Parkinson, dance guru Louie Spence, comedian David O'Doherty and breakfast news presenter Bill Turnbull join team captains David Mitchell and Lee Mack on the panel show, hosted by Rob Brydon. The aim of the game is to hoodwink opponents with absurd facts and plausible lies - like whether Louie makes himself cry before every performance and if David actually is seeing a psychiatrist to cure a strange addiction.
