Hurrah for David Mitchell!

Fans of Peep Show or, slightly less likely, of That Mitchell & Webb Look, will be delighted to know that David Mitchell (yeah, the nerdy one) is a real ale fan, and not afraid to admit it (even though he simply calls it bitter, he goes to some lengths to distinguish it from 'creamy' bitters).

"Nicer than lager, more democratic than wine, and not in the least bit creamy."  You can't argue with that, really.

He talks some sense, which makes up for the fact that it's not exactly laugh-a-minute.  N0-one said he had to be funny all the time, and there's a meerkat in it if you think there absolutely must be some kind of comedy element.

I found this on i-tunes - it's an episode of David Mitchell's soap box, a regular video podcast. This is the first time I've attempted to upload some video.
