COMIC Relief viewers are all saying the same thing about the show’s comedy sketches.
The celeb-filled annual event, which raises millions for the charity, returned to our screens tonight.
The three-hour show featured Paddy McGuinness, Sir Lenny Henry, David Tennant and Alesha Dixon.
As usual there were a number of famous faces who appeared on the programme, including Tom Holland, Paul Rudd, Jack Whitehall and many more.
There were also a number of sketches.
French and Saunders took part in The Repair Shop, there was a Countryfile parody and David Walliams and Matt Lucas starred in Rock Profile.
However, fans weren’t impressed with them – and some went as far as to say they weren’t funny.
One wrote on Twitter: “Comic relief is absolutely dying of an ***. It’s like watching a Butlins Redcoat show.”
A second asked, “Where’s the comic gone in comic relief…”?
A third chimed in: “Didn’t comic relief used to be fun?!”
“I need some relief from this comic,” added a fourth.
Another decided to switch channels as he tweeted: “Sorry #ComicRelief. I switched off.”
Elsewhere, Alesha Dixon and Paddy McGuinness fell silent in a stun after Comic Relief was hit by a technical error – just 20 minutes into the show.
The hosts welcomed Mind Mangler – played by Henry Lewis – onto the stage just after Fantastic Beasts stars Eddie Redmayne and Jude Law surprised some school kids.
However, during Mind Mangler’s very brief appearance, viewers could still hear Eddie and Jude being over-dubbed.
The segment was quickly cut short with Alesha saying “Give it up for the Mind Mangler” before correcting herself and realizing there had been a “technical error”.
Viewers couldn’t help but notice the very fitting timing for things to go wrong, and wondered if it was planned all along.
Taking to Twitter, one person wrote: “When Magic Goes Wrong… goes wrong. How embarrassing.”
Echoing her comments, someone else said, “Magic Goes Wrong goes wrong is literally the 2022 thing ever.”
At the start of the show, Paddy started proceedings and stunned his co-hosts with a rather rude joke.
As hundreds of red noses showered the audience, Lenny shouted, “It’s a nose shower,” but Paddy soon left his colleagues red-faced.
The Top Gear presenter quipped: “Oh no. No, sorry, sorry, sorry. Forgiveness. Buddy, it’s supposed to go on your nose.”
Then, in a breathtaking moment, Paddy shook his head before adding, “Sorry, that was my cousin.”
Almost immediately, Paddy’s fellow hosts looked embarrassed as he cracked what appeared to be an adult joke.
