It was a little bit disappointing as there was only 5 people that watched the event. It got a bit too political and it lost the comical value. I actually preferred to the Isolation Game. It was more lighthearted and fun.

Loved it, Boothby epic as ever and though sorry not to be there live as planned it was fantastic. Only problem was I couldn't work out how to join in comments but that's because i'm a techno numpty. Huge thanks to Boothby and to JokePit for doing this. See you the other side when life is different to how it is right now. Hats off to creativity and can do attitudes though! Ax

Brilliant night! Chilled, spontaneous and very, very funny! The pairing and repartee between BG and Kev Rook was magic. A really cracking night!

Given the current situation I think this was a great taste of what I had hoped to attend this weekend. Both Boothby and Kev were a pleasure to watch.
