BBC bans Jimmy Saville jokes?
We've not addressed Jimmy Saville's alleged abuse of his position and therefore many teenage girls on the site much/at all. It rates very high on the grim factor, and now it seems the BBC are still trying to gag people regarding the topic - this time on Mock The Week.
Talking with The Sun, host Dara O'Briain said: "The BBC were very cautious about that. I don't think they wanted anything about that on Mock The Week."
Anyone watching last night would've seen Andy 'PROFESSIONAL SHOUTY MAN' Parsons flout the BBC's wishes by roaring: "What are the chances against a joke about Jim’ll Fix It on the BBC?" That was his answer to "What question might have the answer 10 billion?"
By all accounts BBC3's Russell Howard's Good News have also been advised by bosses not to make reference to Saville's indiscretions.
In other words, Jimmy 'The Tortured Seal' Carr has free reign with his usual calibre jokes on this Monday's 8 Out of 10 Cats.
I can’t get used to it being on a Monday either.
