The return of HIGNFY tonight has reminded me I really haven't posted anything here in a while, so I thought I'd do a quick run down.
Obviously HIGNFY's back, 8 Cats seems to have suddenly reappeared and The News Quiz is still gracing the airwaves. Equally, Clive Anderson's Chat Room is back on, and depending on your view of what counts as topical comedy Harry Hills TV Burp is back soon. (It's topical certianly, just focusing on TV rather then 'news'. Still it's very funny reguardless of genre.)
Also, with the whole american election thing going on, the Daily Show seems to have been on great form recently and the candidates themselves have been making the funnys with their brilliantly writen send ups of each other at the Al Smith dinner.
Some favourite (probably mis-quoted) lines from Obamas speech: (Haven't watched McCains yet so no quotes from him)
"There have been several mistruths said about me during the campaign. I was not born in a manger... I was actually born on krypton...."
"Fox News have even accused me of fathering two African-American children in wedlock."
"I'm not sure quite why we're here, I was told that we could move this to the Yankee Stadium... And what happened to the Greek columns I requested?"
