I quite enjoyed that. And quite accurate with their satirical observations.

Who said that the Germans can't be more racist than us?

Can Godwin's Law be invoked by implicit reference? If so, congratulations on a record time!

Mild giggles. Not very good.

But you do know you have to worry when bad quality German TV is more factually accurate than British mainstream newspapers.

Implied by whom?  I was mainly thinking of Bismarck's attempts at the Germanisation of ethnic minorities.  Although possibly comparable to the Highland "Clearances" or the attempts of the church in Wales to curtail the use of the Welsh language.  I will leave that for you to decide which is most racist. Winking Emoji.

Funny sketch show though, I liked it.  We could with more of this kind of thing on UK TV.  Where is Spitting Image when we need it most?

The jibe about Britain having to "bow down" to Germany yet again was especially hilarious, worthy of Mel Brooks's Franz Liebkind.

I found it quite 'educational'.  I had never seen the articles in the Daily Heil (See what I did there?) regarding avocados and baby bumps.  Quite disgraceful.

there's something peculiar about german humour, even in their comedy they still manage to be pedantic. maybe it's just that show.

Political satire isn't comedy, particularly when the chosen format is replicating the main news at 10 which the Heute Show directly follows.
