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.

Latitude Review: Sara Pascoe

The audience in the Latitude comedy tent can be a bit of a mixed bunch. Families having a picnic, friends sheltering from the sun or the rain or just slackers and stoners flaked out after a hard night. Not necessarily comedy fans. But it was clear by the cheer when Sara Pascoe came on that a lot of people knew her and wanted to hear what she had to say, which always makes a performer happier than confusion or indifference (which seemed to be what Nick Helm was experiencing when I arrived as he was finishing).
