  1. Obviously comedy is very subjective, but I thought At home alone together had a number of funny bits. Particularly well done to pull it together so fast under the circumstances.

    1. Bit harsh there…I’m inclined to agree with cazz81, perhaps the role play bit was too drawn out but there was plenty else that worked for me, the bit on bleach for one, nice to see Ryan Shelton back and I’m always happy to see Bjorn Stewart (hopefully he’s recovered ☺), still enjoying the force of nature that is Helen Bidou, and Ray Martin in deadpan mode was an unexpected treat.
