Episode 4: 2003

Summary

A look at comedy in 2003, when Tim, Lee and Dawn's love triangle reached a memorable conclusion in The Office and the original run of Cold Feet bowed out with a tragic storyline. It was also the year when members of the public found themselves the unwitting comedy stooges of hidden-camera shows like Trigger Happy TV and Three Non Blondes, Bruce Forsyth made a memorable appearance as guest host of Have I Got News for You and comedy legend Bob Monkhouse performed his last stand-up gig to an audience of fellow comics in a small London pub
