What else can be said about tonight’s University Challenge other than “MONKMAN WAS BACK”?
This manic perplexed-eyed man is the gift that keeps giving; even he appears to not quite believe he’s a person himself. I found myself laughing nearly every time he spoke which I’m aware isn’t pleasant, but his timing is extraordinary; if I were a TV producer, I’d sign him up for a twenty-six part series without even considering the content; just hearing him read from the dictionary would be enough.
See below for my Twtter coverage of tonight; every time I say Monkman, feel free to pour yourself with a drink.
