Episode 2: That Mitchell and Webb Sound

Summary

Comedy sketches focus on the real point of owning a cat, see a culture clash at the Proms, and reveal a brilliant new way to worry. David Mitchell, Robert Webb, Olivia Colman and James Bachman star. First aired in 2013.

Review

David Mitchell and Robert Webb have lost none of their comedy momentum: the series continues as energetically as it started last week. This time, the running sketch is Mitchell as the “Radio 4 sommelier”, with suggestions for a wine that will augment the most laughs in each section of the show. The most unexpected hilarity comes in a scene set in a tavern close to Count Dracula’s castle where the endless list of vampire lore — ward them off with water, crucifixes, garlic etc — is given a very funny new twist.

A final word of praise for the wonderful Olivia Colman, whose skills as a comedy actress are put to good use.
