Comedian Tim Minchin has lashed out at ITV after his performance was cut from Jonathan Ross's Christmas special.I really can't see what the fuss was about, to be honest. Judge for yourself.
Writing on his website, Minchin said he had been asked to compose a song for the show and wrote a "silly, harmless" lyric comparing Jesus to Woody Allen.
He claims the song - which he describes as "not very contentious" - was cut because the broadcaster feared it might generate negative press attention.
Of course, in true prohibitionist tradition, the name Minchin is now far more sellable and recognised than it ever would have been before.
There's a lesson to be learnt there. Not that it ever will be.
Merry Christmas, all.
