Mock the Week

Series 17 - Episode 1



Topical TV satire is enjoying a miniature renaissance, with The Mash Report, Frankie Boyle’s New World Order and The Week That Wasn’t all currently or recently having a bash at it. It’s highly unlikely, though, that any of those will survive long enough to begin a 17th series, as Mock the Week does tonight.

Host Dara O Briain is still in the presenter’s chair, with Hugh Dennis an ever-present panellist and the other slots filled with comedians of varying renown: James Acaster is very nearly too successful to bother with this sort of thing any more, while this might be the first time you’ve seen Darren Harriott or Ed Gamble. Joining them are Mock semi-regulars Zoe Lyons and Angela Barnes.


Dara O Briain hosts as regular panellist Hugh Dennis looks back on another events in news and politics, with the help of fellow comedians James Acaster, Angela Barnes, Ed Gamble, Darren Harriott and Zoe Lyons. Yet again, stand-up and improvisation are the name of the game as the contestants try to get one up on one another.
