The 8 Words of Ash – The Impressions Show With Culshaw & Stephenson

Apparently Ashley was a fan of impressionists, let’s see if he still is

Lost it's funny, out of ideas, she's better!

Erm, no, not so much. I can’t really blame him, I’ve never found John Culshaw funny and I’m not a massive fan of impressionists in general. In fact, the funniest thing about John Culshaw is that spell-checker wanted to change his name to John Cumshaw. Goes off to have a sniggering fit, comes back ten minutes later. Sorry about that, I don’t know what came over me.

Anyway, The Impressions Show, a sort of bog standard Little Britain but without the jokes, finished its third series of six episodes late last year. New characters included such stellar celebrity no-marks as Alan Carr and Nancy Dell’Olio, which should be warning enough about the quality of the product.

But despite my rather disparaging remarks the show did rather well, lots of people plonked themselves down on the sofa, either that or were chained to radiators to stop them escaping, because it had audiences figures in the millions. Which just goes to show that most of Britain has given up and is ready to die, and due to this popularity I dare say that there will be a total repeat of the latest series at some point this year and for die hard fans (people who really like John Culshaw, not Die Hard the movie fans) I’m relatively sure they’ll be a season 4, I don’t know when that will be and because I won’t be watching it I don’t really care either.

A word of warning though, the 2nd series was broadcast in Egypt a bit over a year ago and then there was rioting, so be warned, prolonged exposure can lead to anger, discontent and anarchic feelings of hatred towards a vicious political regime. Series two is released on DVD in the UK on Monday the 12th of March 2012.
