Tonight's latest Show Me The Funny episode sees the hopeful comics put through their paces as they are given a crash course in military training for their latest gig at an army barracks, however Cole Parker's attempt to lighten the mood fails to win laughs.
Cole decides to play a risky prank in front of the strict Drill Sergeant, saying: “I’ve got a little rouse I’m planning for parade. I’m not sure how it’s going to go down. It will either be a rip roaring comedy success…or not.”
But Cole is left red-faced when he gets a very public grilling for cutting the buttocks out of his fatigues. The Sergeant fumes: “Him with his ar*e hanging out of his combats, get him in my office that f**ker!” He adds: “I didn’t find it funny and I don’t think any of the squad did so he might be in for a bit of a rough night [at the gig].”
Worried that he could have blown his chances with the audience, Cole reflects: “I may have shot myself in the foot here.”
Show Me The Funny continues at 9PM tonight on ITV1.
