TODAY, 9.05PM, ABC2The subtitle for this show is Stand Up Without a Net and the way it works is that the comedian goes on stage, his topic is flashed on a screen behind him and he has to improvise, changing every few minutes to a new topic. It is an unfortunate truth that some comics are not naturally funny and if Eddie Pepitone had had any sense he would have run a mile rather that do this show. Swearing and abusing half the live audience are no substitutes for humour. But do not give up on the show because British comedian Matt Kirshen follows and totally rises to the challenge. Then Robin Williams takes the stage and the audience is in stitches.
