Ode to Tony
I’ve seen bits of BBC Two’s Culture Show before, and despite the nonsense sometimes uttered by Lauren Laverne, it’s seemed pretty good. I mean, it’s got Mark Kermode on it, what the hell else do you want?
But this surely deserves a bigger audience than the couple of million viewers that usually watch the show.
Written by John Oliver – who’s now working on Jon Stewart’s The Daily Show in the U.S. – and Andy Saltzman, performed by Rory Bremner, and with the animation of the 2DTV team, this is British satire at its very best.
