Episode 3: One Warm Prawn

Summary

The comedians are challenged to taste-test some mystery baby food, Russell Howard presents a nightmarish fairy tale and Liza Tarbuck introduces a plastic lizard to a cordless drill.

Review

“It’s like Crystal Maze meets Crackerjack!” says Liza Tarbuck as she prepares for the sock-related final task tonight. Not a bad description of the show as a whole, and so far Liza’s playing a blinder.

The first task is to write, illustrate and read out a bedtime story for grown-ups of exactly 50 words, and in the process, we gather that Liza’s talent for hand-drawn lettering is really rather magical, as she recites her story of the Scatterbrained Man, complete with a hilariously base ending. Alice Levine is quite the artist, too. Russell Howard, not so much.

It’s a festival of comedy creativity, complete with a pirouetting lizard and baby food made from sausage and Sugar Puffs.
