THE COM­EDY CHAN­NEL / 8.30PM

- NEALA JOHN­SON

Will Fer­rell al­ways did love do­ing Ge­orge W. Bush (hair greyed, eyes squint­ing) and this 2009 live spe­cial was the fun­ny­man’s way of farewellin­g his favourite char­ac­ter just a cou­ple of months af­ter Dubya left the White House. Six years later, in the midst of Don­ald Trump-aged­don, it’s easy to feel a fond nos­tal­gia for Dubya’s clangers — the words “ac­tual quote” or “true” pop up on screen be­hind Fer­rell when he quotes Bush ver­ba­tim. The com­edy wrote it­self when Ge­orge W. was Pres­i­dent.
