Paralympics 2016 Highlights - The Last Leg - Netflix

The Last Leg (known during its first series as The Last Leg with Adam Hills) is a British comedy and late night television talk show that originally ran alongside the 2012 Summer Paralympics every night following the main coverage on Channel 4. Hosted by Australian comedian Adam Hills and co-hosted by Josh Widdicombe and Alex Brooker, it gives an alternative review of the day's events. Featuring a mix of comedy, guests and Paralympics highlights, the show received strong reviews and regularly pulled in more than a million viewers each night of the Paralympic Games. It has since become a weekly show giving an alternative look at the week's events. Series 14 began airing on 22 June 2018.

Paralympics 2016 Highlights - Recurring segments - Netflix

Recurring segments in the show include rants or attacks by Hills on certain people and organisations, which has since resulted in the coining of Hills' catchphrase: “Don't be a dick!” Another segment is “The Last 7 Days”, in which Widdicombe looks at more comic news items that have occurred during the week, and Brooker's various attempts to qualify for the 2016 Summer Paralympics. Another is the “Bullshit Button”, which was first used in a segment in which Brooker interviewed the then leader of the Liberal Democrats Nick Clegg to see if Clegg could persuade him to vote in the 2015 UK general election. Brooker would press a large red buzzer that played an audio recording of him saying the word “Bullshit” if he thought Clegg was lying during the interviews. Since then the buzzer has been used in various situations whenever the show thinks someone is lying, and a second buzzer has been added which features Widdicombe saying: “That's true, actually” when someone says something that really is true. After appearing on the show in 2017, comedian Armando Iannucci's voice has replaced Brooker's voice on the bullshit button. Since the replacement, three more buttons have been implemented, all four varying in levels: “cow chutney”, “a shite in shining armour”, “a turd the size of Disneyland Paris” and “Thomas the Wank Engine”, the latter being the most often used.
