Slideshow round from Argumental Series 3 Episode 2. Topic: God Will Not Forgive Richard Dawkins. Marcus Brigstocke argues FOR while Sarah Millican argues AGAINST.
Woah.. They're really bad at improvising.
How embarrassing, there's nothing clever or funny here. The laughter is totally inappropriate so I'm guessing it's been lifted from a vastly superior production.
Cringe fest, I really enjoy Marcus´ humour but what is his beef with Dawkins?
Some episodes of Argumental are good, some are bad. This one wasn't so good. They have to come up with the argument on the spot and sometimes it falls flat, especially when the person is made to argue against something they agree with. Sometimes they can take a twist when that happens to make it work out for them. For example, if told to argue "god will not forgive richard dawkins", I would take the angle of saying "of course he wont, because you have to exist first before you can forgive someone"
Marcus Brigstocke is a HUGE fan of Dawkins, it was probably hard for him to do.
If these people are dumb enough to get the tickets, then surely they're dumb enough to laugh at this crap. Seriously, Argumental is a cheap combination knock-off of Who's Line Is It Anyway?, which was a much more entertaining display of improvisational acting, and Lewis Black's Root of All Evil.
