Trivia

In an HBO Instagram Live chat, Tracey Ullman, who just finished filming a scene as Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, revealed an embarrassing incident that took place on set. When made up as a male, she routinely wears a fake penis (a sac filled with birdseed) to get into character. After filming as Corbyn on location, she unpinned the apparatus in a pubic loo and threw it over into the stall next to her as a joke thinking it being occupied by her costume assistant. To her horror, it wasn't. See more »

Funniest thing on British TV
10 November 2017 | by ddcoffman-88193See all my reviews

This is the funniest show on British TV. Hard-hitting, unflinching, dishes out evenly to both political parties and their appalling inadequacies. Tracey Ullman is on top of her game: the imitations of Theresa May, Angela Merkel, Brigitte Macron and Jeremy Corbyn are top-rate. The writing is intelligent and the delivery is pitch- perfect.
