If it has to be one it's "Jazz Club" but, seriously.... they haven't 'travelled' well, have they?

Jazz Club - funny about three times and then meh. This one wasn't very good.

Big Train - Juxtaposition of the Office and Jesus. Funny for about 10 seconds although I do love Mark Heap.

Vic & Bob - that's fucking terrible - they're generally much funnier than that.

Two Ronnies - Still amusing because it's well crafted and both were excellent actors.

The Day Today - The send up of the media that TDT and Brass Eye conveyed was fantastic, but it feels as if it's been played out now.

They’re all ok apart from the Vic &Bob thing which is them at their laziest, phoning it in for Sky Atlantic (or whatever).

I reckon the Day Today still stands out most though, even though I love anyone ripping the piss out of Jay Kay.
I've been talking about writing a book - 25 years of TEFL - for a few years now. I've got it in me.

The ones with canned laughter are out, though the jazz musician parody might have come out on top if not for it.

The dogbomb one was a rather "truthy" I'd say so it gets my vote.

I'd probably go for the Jesus sketch, though there's other Big Train ones I prefer
