Review

In a panel show that includes Rob Brydon, David Mitchell and Lee Mack, it’s not often that one of the guests steals the show. They don’t need to. They’re hired as stooges: be yourself, tell your anecdote and let Mack and Mitchell light the comic fireworks.

Tonight, though, stand-up comic and actor Chris McAusland, who turned to comedy after he lost his sight in his 20s, proves a blindingly good panellist. In one section, the regulars ask him to describe how he thinks they look, judging by their voices. He suggests David Mitchell “Sounds like he looks like a Toby Jug of a duck” – which is hard to beat, really.

It’s a typically upbeat, enjoyable edition to kick off series 13. Did Angela Scanlon fail to recognise Steven Spielberg on the Baftas red carpet? Did John Simm climb into bed naked with his father-in-law? All is revealed.
