Pun-tastic knockabout comedy game where a host gives two teams of comedians silly things to do involving as many jokes they can cram into the half-hour. Not original and just not funny.

Not even the saviour of many a dodgy format, Bob Monkhouse, could perform emergency CPR (Comedy Pun Revival) on this format.
