What’s being described as “television’s only meat-based quiz show” is set to debut on the Dave comedy channel this month.
This sick premise for a show will see host, Al Murray (using his Pub Landlord persona), asking questions of four teams who will “compete for a side of meat”.
The Dave website says that teams will “play for the honour of taking home a frozen chicken” while the “runners-up can expect to walk away with sausages”.
The channel assures viewers that the 8-part “Compete for the Meat” series, which begins on 19th May, will be “hilarious”. Not for the chickens and pigs, however.
Basing a comedy quiz on a competition to win the flesh of slaughtered animals is in extremely poor taste. The violence, suffering and death of the meat industry is no laughing matter.
