Richard Hammond’s Brain Reaction: Bobby Mair, Lou Sanders (Wed 11 May on Comedy Central)



Bobby Mair, Lou Sanders: David Baddiel, standing in for Johnny Vegas, goes head to head with Victoria Coren Mitchell. Guests Bobby Mair and Lou Sanders join the fun, while comedian and brainiac Ria Lina tries to keep things on track.
