I promise that this won’t turn into a Mitchell & Webb fansite or whatever, but Videogum has a nice appreciation of the show which includes the skit above. At the risk of overselling it, David Mitchell and Robert Webb should know that if they never do another sketch as good as this, they’re still going down in the Great Book of Comedy. The amount of pathos here is off the charts, and all the more incredible for being so subtly delivered.
