TV: How'd You Get So Rich?, C4

There has been a flurry lately of documentaries fronted by comedians. David Baddiel talked about his father’s dementia, Jon Richardson talked about his angst. But Katherine Ryan’s new series touches on a subject that is truly universal. “It’s the question we all want to ask,” she says at the start. And, give or take the few remaining communists in the country, she is probably right. We all do want to know “how d’you get so rich?”.

TV Review: Frankie Boyle's American Autopsy, BBC iPlayer/BBC2

The US Election was only last week and it already feels as if everything has been said about an event that has turned the world upside down. Or, more importantly in this case, that every joke has been made about it. But you can always rely on Frankie Boyle to nudge the taboo barrier a little further, which he does magnificently at the end of this topical show, painting a portrait of a post-Trump apocalypse that makes Bosch’s pictures of hell seem positively benign.

TV Review: Jack Dee's Referendum Helpdesk, BBC2
