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.

Latitude Review: Katherine Ryan

After a short, snappy appearance from Shazia Mirza – “I won’t stay long, I’m being deported in 20 minutes” – Katherine Ryan came on sporting a flowery headdress and some attitude for Latitude.

TV Review: Jack Dee's Referendum Helpdesk, BBC2

Nobody seems to have told the person that did the opening credits for this comedy version of Question Time that it is about the EU. Instead subject titles such as “relationships” and “money” rolled past as if our host, serial cynic Jack Dee, was any old agony aunt.

Edinburgh Preview: Katherine Ryan

I think Katherine Ryan is going to have to do a new photo shoot quicker than planned. The wonderfully elegant shots by Idil Sukan are adoring front pages of magazines and Edinburgh has not even started. Ryan is clearly on a roll, having already added extra dates to her Fringe run. Which I guess proves this. TV exposure is great for ticket sales, but only if people find you funny.
