It's hard to work out what's more impressive – Zaltzman getting through an entire show sporting a comedy arrow-through-head without giggling at the hackish inanity of the ruse, or the fact that over the duration of the show he intelligently tackles world politics, UK politics, economics, healthcare, electoral reform, pensions, the monarchy, Wikileaks, Bin Laden, and the mechanics of chicken fighting.
Regular listeners of Zaltzman's podcast might recognise the
occasional nugget of material poking its head through, however his
rapid-fire delivery ensures that one would be hard pressed to steal
any of his material without the aid of a court stenographer and a big
bucket of amphetamines.
Zaltzman is an absolute A-grade 'Bullshit Artiste' of the highest calibre, and fans of tenuous cricket based metaphors and relentless strings of canine puns will find this show especially enjoyable.
