‘It’s a serious point, Joe’…

Jo Lycett left TV viewers in stitches following an appearance on Laura Kuenssberg’s new TV show this morning.

The comedian joined No 10 staffer Cleo Watson and Labor’s Emily Thornberry to discuss the divisive response to rising cost of living prices by Boris Johnson’s potential replacement, Lizz Truss.

He sarcastically shared his honest thoughts by claiming it’s what he thought left-wing people would say.

When asked what his “honest” thoughts were on Truss’ response, he replied: “You said earlier I’m not left or right. I know there’s been criticism in the Mail on Sunday today about leftie liberal wokie comedians on the BBC. I’m actually very right wing and I love it. I thought she gave great clear answers. I know exactly what she’s up to.”

Here, Kuenssberg interjected: “It’s a serious point, Joe. Forgive me. It’s a serious point.”

“I’m not being sarcastic,” Lycett said.

Kuenssberg continued: “She said that there was a big package of help coming this week for people to help pay their bills.”

Lycett replied: “Yeah, she was very clear what she said. I think you know exactly what’s going to happen. I’m reassured, you’re reassured.” He then turned to Thornberry, who was stifling laughter, and asked: “Are you reassured?”

Reactions have flooded in on social media after the show was broadcast, with Observer food critic Jay Rayner describing it as “top punditry”

LBC presenter James O’Brien said the clip was “beyond brilliant”, while another described the clip as “fucking spectacular”.
