“Kohli was so good it didn’t matter.” – Bruce Dessau, BeyondTheJoke (I think he means existence & the universe itself doesn’t matter, but take from it what you will)

“The Worst Comedy I’ve ever seen, if it can be called comedy. More polemic and toilet humour dressed up as comedy. After all, what is funny about terrorism and child abuse?” – Edfringereview
