Jonathan Ross’ Mid-Life Crisis On Very Important People

Very Important People is a relatively new Channel 4 impressions sketch show from Morgana Robinson and Terry Mynott targeting modern day celebrity. And in tonight’s episode, as well as a rather entertaining Charlie Brooker/David Mitchell sideswipe, they also went for Jonathan Ross and his Superfriends, Russell Brand and David Walliams, depicting them as comic book characters that Jonathan is creating as part of his…

Exactly. Terry plays Jonathan Ross and Walliams, Morgana plays Russell Brand, with a prosthetic chest.

 

Naturally the sketch owes a lot to nineteen sixtoes Batman, just in case the whole thing was not quite camp enough.

    

And they get to fight their mortal enemy, the Daily Mail.

Mid Life Crisis, Ho!

UPDATE: Jonathan Ross tweets: Just saw the sketch with me in on #vip. Very funny and alarmingly accurate…
