Everything’s amazing, nobody’s happy…

As an aside to Episode 18, this is what the BSB team watched a couple of weeks ago as a kind of comedy warm-up for the recording process.

    ‘Thanks for drawing it to my attention, and by the way, can I interest you in this miraculous hair loss treatment?’ Or perhaps, ‘Thanks for drawing it to my attention, and by the way, if you’ve been feeling unhappy despite everything being amazing, how about trying this miraculous new anti-depressant?’

    Something else funny that I recently found (and which we may use a warm-up for episode 20) is this:

    Nothing to do with Louis CK, but it did make me laugh like a drain.
