Weekend Replay: “8 Out of 10 Cats” Does “Deal or No Deal”
This past Friday Channel 4 did another of their “Mash Up” events. Hosts from some of the network’s most popular shows traded jobs for the day. For instance comedian and talk show host Alan Carr hosted The Million Pound Drop instead of Davina McCall. One of our favorites, Deal or No Deal, got into the mix this time. If you remember us discussing this last year you’ll remember that Jimmy Carr, comedian and host of the former Comedy Central show Distraction as well as 4′s 8 Out of 10 Cats, hosted the long running letters-and-numbers game Countdown. This year Jimmy got to take control of the Dream Factory and substitute for Noel Edmonds. Sean Lock and Jon Richardson play for charity.
It’s the same Deal or No Deal you know and love…22 boxes, £250,000, the Banker…but just a lot funnier. In addition to all the comedians taking part former infamous contestants Corrine, who risked £88,000 and left with a penny, and Nong, who won £250,000, return for good luck. Take a look at it below. It’s incredibly entertaining. Beyond that, it’s just a good game of Deal. Jimmy, as always, is the perfect mix of incredibly funny and a great host. We guarantee you’ll love it. Let us know what you think, though.
