Je n'aime pas dans les vieux films américains quand les conducteurs ne regardent pas la route. Et de ratage en ratage, on s'habitue à ne jamais dépasser le stade du brouillon. La vie n'est que l'interminable répétition d'une représentation qui n'aura jamais lieu.

What Is It

British & American comedians square off to see what they know about each other’s cultures. 

Technical Details

A new episode drops every two weeks and they typically run forty-five minutes to an hour.  The iTunes archive has the most recent hundred episodes, which is darn close to the whole archive.  For more episodes, check out the official website

What About It

It’s a great premise for a show, I think.  Host Dave Holmes welcomes two British comedians and two American comedians and quizzes them about the opposite cultures.  The results are typically funny and occasionally the trivia itself is pretty great.  Dave Holmes is really doing an astounding Jesse Thorn impression, which is kind of grating actually; I sometimes find Thorn himself grating.  But this one’s usually a good time. 

3 stars. 

Essential If

It sounds good. 

Avoid Like the Plague If

The real Jesse Thorn meets your quota of fake belly laughs.
