UK tv comedy to feature Bono

UK fans............The spoof comedy documentary show Star Stories is to feature an episode dedicated to Bono. Will be on Ch4 on Saturday 27th Dec @10:35pm. Its normally quite amusing

I have also posted this on EYKIW forum, as i know many dont venture over there, and vice versa

These are hillarious, but expect to be offended.


The Heather Mills one last week was bloody hillarious. XD

I agree Wayne. As far as Star Stories goes, it was the poorest i have seen. And its nothing to do with being offended coz its bono...just wasnt as funny as others.
For those that didnt see it, the main gist of it was.....

Bono was gods son.
He had specail powers to do good.
Kept playing Simple Minds music in the background
Was factually accurate tho...they obviously researched him...or someone on it is a fan.
Didnt miss much tho folks.
They seemed to enjoy it over on EYKIW forum

Thanks for the link, but it's available only to those resident in the UK or Ireland.
