    Very good indeed, loved how he got numerous US (republicans mainly) politicians to endorse teaching toddlers to carry guns. Priceless.

    The whole guns for toddlers thing was really worrying if you live in America.

    That was so funny, yet so scary at the same time.

    Hard to believe that these people are in power.

    Great programme.

    He’s a comedy genius. Always one step ahead of the people he interviews. It’s very worrying that people would advocate young kids carrying guns.

    Getting that woman to donate pubic hair for his brush was hilarious. Pretty sure she was on a different planet though.

    Some of those featured have complained they were tricked but that doesn’t hold up for me.

    OK you didn’t know who it was but you knew you were being filmed for public viewing. Not like it was a hidden camera.

    Only one who didn’t look a complete idiot was Bernie Saunders.

    Yep, I would say so. Didn't laugh out loud much, but did chuckle most of the way through.

    I've heard of gun toting before, but this was gun tiny totting.

    Altogether now.

    One of the greatest things I've seen on tv in a very long time. The guy is a genius, but scary how he managed to dupe so many high ranking politicians let alone the general public.

    I loved the Z list bird, appealing for $18 a month to help train child soldiers. Absolute genius!

    I started watching it but turned it off last night, really wasn't that good.

    Nowhere near Ali G standards. :(

    I thought last night's was excellent! The politician showing his arse to deter ISIS being particularly impressive in his vacuous sincerity and willingness to believe any old shit.

    Didn't really find that bit funny :( Maybe because I don't know anything / care much about american politics I am missing it!

    Much prefer Facejacker to this.

    It's very Brass Eye. The humour isn't just what's there on the TV, but the pomposity it pulls down as well.

    Dick Cheney without any hesitation nor with any hint of irony picking his favourite war before happily signing a waterboard was a little unnerving, too.

    He was leaving anyway, but it appears this episode has hastened his departure...

    Yeah, exactly. It is so clever and you have to admire what he is trying to pull off. It's the general concept itself which has you smugly grinning, rather than out and out punchline laughs, the such of Ali G.

    I did really laugh at the mosque plans when he asked for votes on the first one, got none so said that the second one would be the one to go with.

    Just with some of the stuff you "like" on here just presumed you were an ultra-right wing bigot. Easy mistake.
