The problem with these shows is that they’re fraudulent, being mostly about as funny as spending a wet February weekend in a cheap Morecombe guest house with your flatulent mother-in-law while the elements conspire to deny you any hope of escape.
And YouTube is full of them. They usually have an intro which includes the instruction: ‘try not to laugh.’ Do we need to?

When I was a cub scout I was told that we should try to do at least one good deed every day. Mine is in the bag for today.
