Radio Times Review of Tracey Ullman's Show Episode Two

Tracey Ullman's Show


Review by: Ben Dowell

If this series has confirmed anything it’s what a brilliant impersonator Tracey Ullman is.

This episode treats us to her pitch-perfect Camilla Parker-Bowles, a raucous hunting, shooting ’n’ smoking laugh-a-minute lady who spends the day looking after her grandson (a child who bears more than a passing resemblance to the real Prince George).

Ullman’s Dame Judi Dench continues to cause mayhem (this time deliberately blocking toilets in posh hotels), while her Maggie Smith auditions for the part of James Bond. Angela Merkel makes a welcome return from episode one.

Ullman’s less well-known characters also hit the mark. I loved her retired Wimbledon line judge, and a sketch about a computing lesson for silver surfers shows Ullman’s gift for satire and spot-on social observation.

After 30 years away it’s clear that this is a gifted woman who is returning to her native UK in triumph.


The Duchess of Cornwall babysits Prince George for the day, Dame Judi Dench causes trouble in a five-star hotel and a Midlands couple return from holiday to find an illegal immigrant hidden under their motorhome. Plus, the tutor of a silver surfers computer class offers some extraordinary tips, and Angela Merkel entertains embassy staff with a song. Comedy sketch show, guest starring Steve Pemberton.

Why the Tracey Ullman show is worth watching - even if you think it won't be funny

Tracey Ullman proves she hasn't suffered from tall-poppy syndrome now that she's crossed the pond from LA - in fact she's a clever comedienne

By Judith Woods

I didn’t bother to watch the first episode of The Tracey Ullman Show – her first comedy show for British television in 30 years – because I assumed it would be a bit lame. So, apparently, did BBC bosses, because they tucked it away in the schedules (Monday, bedtime).

This lack of faith meant that nobody would find it unless they really, really wanted to. Which I didn’t.

Shame on them. Shame on me (but mostly them). Because it was fabulous. Laugh-aloud funny. I watched it on BBC iPlayer while wading though my tax return and actually had to hit “pause” when I could no longer concentrate on taxi receipts. 

Ullman has been living in the United States until now. 

 Sharp, savvy and on-the-money irreverent, Ullman – now a remarkably well-preserved 56 – has improved with age, following her lengthy sojourn in the United States, where she has been feted for decades.

Her Angela Merkel impersonation was priceless: the hair, the trademark suit, the neck set low between the rising shoulders… and the twinkle. Oh yes: Merkel’s tiny, purse-lipped twinkle, the grave assertion that all other world leaders fancy her, her Teutonic swoon when she breathes in the scent left on her jacket by a hug from Obama. (Cameron, she notes perceptively, is a Penhaligon man.)

Ullman has done her homework. The scene in which Mutti Merkel drunk-dials Nicola Sturgeon to complain that she’s copying her hairstyle is a hoot.

Tracey Ullman as the German Chancillor Angela Merkel 

And then there’s her shoplifting Dame Judi Dench. The prosthetics were so realistic and the mannerisms so perfectly captured – from the almost imperceptible head movements to the flounce of the forgiving kaftan – that Ullman reports she has been mistaken for her. It was both affectionate and wicked, as the best comedy should be.

Ullman as Judi Dench. 

Ullman, a mother of two, is a grown-up, clever comedienne who has done tremendously well across the pond. Having lived for many years in LA with her comedy producer husband, Allan McKeown (whom she lost to cancer in 2013, just days before their 30th anniversary), she risked falling foul to tall-poppy syndrome on her return to Britain. However, the BBC has just announced it is recommissioning her show. I hope she forgives their parlous scheduling of this series.

Welcome home, Tracey.

Tracey Ullman's Show set to return for Series 2

Tracey Ullman's Show - the new BBC One sketch comedy series - looks set to return for another run.

Press reports suggest that both the BBC and Tracey Ullman have now agreed, in principle, to make a second series together.

The news follows strong ratings for the debut episode. Broadcast on Monday night in a 10:45pm slot, the programme attracted an average audience of 2.9 million. This impressive figure was higher than the usual average for BBC One at that time of night and "trounced" the statistics that other channels reported.

The Guardian says: "It has emerged that both parties have agreed in principle to a second series of the show, although it is unclear at this point if it will be given a more prominent slot. While sources close to the deal stressed that no contracts have been signed, it is understood that Ullman and the BBC have verbally agreed that they want to do another series."

The newspaper adds: "The BBC indicated it would like another outing of the show even before the first episode had gone out this week, according to one insider."

The new series was met with broadly positive press reviews. The Independent noted: "Pitch-perfect impressions are a tricky business. The look and the characterisation must be just so; to nail the voice, mannerisms and identify those tics that we don't realise are funny until someone shows us they are. For magic, you also need a razor-sharp twist on a character that's both surprising but moreish, televisually speaking. Tracey Ullman succeeded in all of the above in this first episode."

There is speculation the second series, if formally commissioned, may be broadcast in a prime time slot. It has been suggested audience figures could rise to as much as 6 million if the programme was shown earlier in the evening.

Tracey Ullman's Show is the comedian's first British comedy series in more than 30 years. Having risen to stardom in 1980s BBC sketch show Three Of A Kind, Ullman moved to America. There, she launched The Tracey Ullman Show, which ran for four series and, notably, in the process launched The Simpsons.

Reacting to news that her new sketch show may return, a BBC spokesperson declined to confirm that the format was definitely coming back, instead saying: "We are delighted with how well received the first episode has been, but it is far too early to confirm a second series."

Episode 2 of Tracey Ullman's Show, guest starring actors including Steve Pemberton, will be broadcast on Monday night. The Duchess of Cornwall is amongst those impersonated by Ullman in the episode.

Tracey Ullman Hits the Right Note with Viewers as 3 Million Tune in

BBC1 sketch show marking comedian’s first British TV programme in more than 30 years takes 24% of all viewing in Monday night slot

Tracey Ullman’s long-awaited return to UK screens, with her first British TV show in more than 30 years, has proved a big hit with viewers after the opening episode attracted an audience of almost 3 million.

The sketch show pulled in an average audience of 2.9 million in a late 10.45pm slot on BBC1, trouncing its rivals and bettering the usual audience share for the slot.

There was uncertainty ahead of the opening episode as to whether the British public would still be interested in Ullman as a performer, given how long it is since she appeared on a home-grown programme.

Others questioned whether the fact that younger generations did not know who she was would severely damage the show’s ratings. While Ullman is said to be Britain’s highest earning female comedian, she has been largely anonymous on UK screens in the decades since moving to America. 

But clearly there is still great affection for the star, who came to prominence in the 1980s BBC sketch show Three of Kind, where she starred alongside Lenny Henry and David Copperfield.

Monday night’s Tracey Ullman’s Show, which featured impressions of Judi Dench and Angela Merkel, took a 24% share of the audience when it aired.

It beat factual series Saved on ITV, which drew 600,00 viewers, Newsnight which was watched by 700,000 and Channel 4’s David Bowie tribute which attracted an audience of 500,000.

The show also pulled in more viewers than Question Timeattracted in the same slot, in its most recent episode on 17 December, which got 2.6 million viewers.

Some have expressed surprise that the BBC put the show on in such a late slot given that, despite her low-profile in the UK, she is a hugely successful performer.

But the programme’s opening episode received a mixed response from those watching.

While some viewers praised the “disguised depth” of her comedy and called the sketches at times “extremely clever”, others branded the show “very patchy.”

One viewer wrote on the BBC’s Points of View message board: “I found it very patchy. The ongoing bit with her returning after a long stint in gaol wasn’t funny at all. On the other hand, the library song was brilliant.”

Another praised the show, saying: “It is true there is a disguised depth to what she does. I think these sketches are more like literary short stories and/or portraits than just comedy sketches.”

One viewer added: “Her shows were always patchy, always had ups and downs. Sometimes she is extremely clever and takes great trouble with impersonations like Judi Dench. Often, though, she seems to me that she carries a sketch too far and loses the basic point of it.”

Ten Things About Tracey Ullman's New Show

After a hugely successful hiatus in the US, the comedian is back on this side of the Atlantic with a new show, writes Gemma Dunn

Tracey Ullman's new sketch show begins on Monday on BBC One.

1. The sketch show’s opening credits feature a version of ’little Tracey’, in homage to the actress’ days spent performing in her mother’s bedroom. Speaking of her younger self, Ullman says: “I used to put my mum’s nightdresses on and be Judy Garland, and then I’d be our neighbour Mr Cox, and eventually she’d tell me to go to bed. I realised then you can do it all your life — it’s what I love to do and it gives me great joy.”

2. The series includes an eclectic mix of characters that Ullman has never before impersonated — from a delinquent Judi Dench to Karen, the former drugs mule returning after 28 years in a Thai jail.

The aim, she explains, was to illustrate a typical day in Britain. “There’s a running story in episode one where it goes from dawn to dusk and keeps referring back to a particular story. It’s a juxtaposition of what’s going on in ordinary people’s lives and famous people’s lives; everyday we’re in this incredible global hub that is the UK, and I just wanted to show a 24-hour period.”

3. Ullman has also chosen to impersonate powerful women who haven’t been mimicked much before, stating: “I wanted to do a series of national treasures, which I think we have. “I’m like a Trojan Horse with these impersonations; I can dress up like them and make them whoever I want them to be. I’m putting a personality within them. I mean, who knew Dench was a kleptomaniac?”

4. Of all the personalities featured — which include Angela Merkel — Ullman admits she found Maggie Smith the most difficult to perfect, at least physically. “I don’t know that we quite got the look right, but the voice... I love listening to it. I adore her, and I hope that none of them the celebs she impersonates hate me for this!”

5. Sally Preston, a feminist MP whose election pledge is to remain topless throughout her term, isn’t based on a current figure, but the character was created to illustrate the shift in how people express political views in this day and age. “We were talking about topless protests in Europe and we imagined one had been elected here and they happened to be topless.” Despite donning prosthetic breasts for the part (“They production said, ’Do you want them to be your own breasts?’, and I thought, ’No, no, no!”’), Ullman maintains it was strange to be in front of the crew in a state of undress. The real triumph, she says, came when the “BBC agreed I didn’t have to pixelate the nipples!”.

6. Getting camera-ready was a lengthy process — from the make-up and wigs to sculpting the faces and bodies that denoted each characters’ individual shape. Speaking of her transformation into Dench, the 56-year-old says: “I had to put a bit of body padding on and I had to wear a cooling device — like a cooling vest —a lot of the time to cool me down. All those little bits, contact lenses and so on, you have to be patient and get it done.”

7. While it was “a fantastic feeling to be someone else”, Ullman had to make a conscious effort to remain relaxed while in costume: “When you’re in all that stuff, sometimes you can panic a bit.”

8. Despite her side-splittingly funny portrayals, even the seasoned actress owns up to finding some accents hard to perfect. She’s fond of the challenge though, and concludes that the best way to accomplish it is to “find someone in the area of the accent I want to impersonate and talk to them”.

9. While filming at London’s Richmond Theatre, Ullman made such a convincing Dench that a passer-by mistook the sketch for a real film sequence, thinking it was the real Dench. “It was great compliment to our make-up team.”

10. Each episode in the six-part series contains an original song written specifically for the show by Ullman and Richard Thomas; composer of the award-winning musical, Jerry Springer: The Opera. A good friend and former colleague of her late husband Allan McKeown (who produced the British musical), Ullman admits she had a lot of fun penning the tracks, and loves singing and dancing within the context of her sketches. “Anglea Merkel even gets to sing!” she reveals. “Why not?!” Tracey

Sitting next to her are writers Kevin Cecil and Andy Riley, and producer Caroline Norris. It should be mentioned that Tracey's Three of a Kind co-star Sir Lenny Henry was spotted in attendance as well.

David Copperfield, who starred alongside Sir Lenny Henry and Tracey Ullman in 1980s hit Three Of A Kind, has hailed her return to the BBC.

“I don’t think Tracey ever went away,” the 68-year-old told the Radio Times, adding: “I don’t believe in comebacks.”

It is over 30 years since the actress, writer and singer was a regular on British TV.

 She has enjoyed decades of success in the US, but is back with a new six-part BBC One sketch series called Tracey Ullman’s Show. 

 Alongside Three Of A Kind, Tracey last appeared on the BBC in A Kick Up The Eighties. 

 The BBC Two series, which ran from 1981-1984, featured Robbie Coltrane and the late Rik Mayall.

Tracey Ullman (Richard Ansett/BBC) 

Before emigrating to the US, Tracey starred in ITV sitcom Girls On Top in 1985 with Dawn French, Jennifer Saunders and Ruby Wax. 

The Slough-born comedian later created The Tracey Ullman Show for the Fox network, winning several Emmy and Golden Globe awards. 

The acclaimed programme famously spawned animated series The Simpsons, which started out as a series of one-minute shorts.

“Not The Magician” as one of David’s cruise ship billings jokingly states to differentiate him from the US illusionist, is the least successful of the Three Of A Kind cast today. 

However, at one point, he was a recognisable face thanks to the BBC One show. 

“We didn’t know we were going to be this nationwide thing,” he recalled. “To walk around supermarkets and have people pointing at you, saying, ‘Are you him off the telly?’”

While Tracey is a trailblazer on US television and Comic Relief co-founder Sir Lenny recently received a knighthood from the Queen, the Yorkshireman’s career went in a different direction.

However, he is pragmatic about his celebrity status. “The thing is, I have had my golden years and I am platinum now,” he said. 

“But I can’t look back with any regrets at all, and success for me is nothing to do with fame, or money, in that respect.”

The three comedians “got on like a house on fire” while filming Three Of A Kind, and David has good memories. 

“I am retired, I have got a pension, but I still love the business,” he said.

Tracey Ullman: I Had to Wear Fatsuit to Play Judi Dench and Being Dame Maggie Smith Was Hard

The top impersonator is returning to UK screens after 30 years with a new six-part show on BBC1
    New show: Tracey Ullman is back on the box 

It’s been 30 years since Tracey Ullman last graced our TV screens, but now the British comedy queen who conquered America is about to make her historic UK return.

And this time, she promises that no celeb, not even Dame Maggie Smith, will be safe.

In fact, the sharp-tongued comedy legend says her impressions are so near the mark, she’s terrified to incur the wrath of some of the biggest names in showbiz.

Tracey says: “I wanted to do a series of national treasures, which I think we have in England... I hope that they don’t hate me for this.”

 And she might need to cross her fingers, especially as she admits wearing a fatsuit to play Judi Dench.

Three of a kind: Tracy with Lenny Henry and David Copperfield 

As the star of sketch shows A Kick Up The Eighties and Three Of A Kind alongside Rik Mayall, Lenny Henry and David Copperfield. Tracey became one of the biggest comedy stars of the decade. 

She was watched by millions and, in 1983, she launched a music career, reaching No2 with They Don’t Know – only missing out on the top spot to Culture Club’s Karma Chameleon.

Other hits included Breakaway and My Guy, which had then Labour leader Neil Kinnock in the video.

Of course, it wasn’t long before the bright lights of Hollywood lured the Buckinghamshire-born funnygirl across the Atlantic to launch The Tracey Ullman Show – an instant hit that made her the richest British female comic and the second highest paid British actress in the world.

Love: In 2003 with late husband Allan McKeown

By the time Tracey left for America she was such a colossal star that her hasty wedding to TV producer Allan McKeown became headline news, with many bookies taking bets on how long the marriage would last.

But they stayed together for three decades until Allan died from prostate cancer in December 2013, just three days before their 30th anniversary.

Now Tracey, 56, concentrates on her children; Johnny McKeown, 27, a writer for James Corden ’s Late Late Show and daughter Mabel, 29, who worked as former Labour deputy leader Harriet Harman’s assistant and is now a charity director.

Jokin' with Neil Kinnock in My Guy video 

And as she makes her long-awaited reurn with a six-part BBC series, Tracey reveals why she’s not worried about ageing gracefully, and how she gets mistaken for Julie Walters...

Are you looking forward to being back on British TV? 

I was thrilled to be asked and I’ve had a wonderful year doing it all.

I just feel really privileged to get an opportunity to do this at this time in my career, and in England, where it matters to me so much that people enjoy what I do. It feels really lovely coming home.

There have been some extraordinary sketch comedy shows in the last 10 years. Catherine Tate is just brilliant. But there haven’t been any for a while so it seemed like a good chance to have a go.

I think a sketch show is great for the YouTube mentality as people will watch things for 30 seconds and move on. In America about five years ago I did Renee Zellweger - more people downloaded that clip than watched the show.

National treasure: Julie Walters 

What’s it like being back in the UK? 

I am always anonymous. I go to the BBC and people think I’m Julie Walters!

Do you still look back at the Three of a Kind videos? 

I never look back on anything; I never watch myself. But I remember loving doing it.

How did you start impersonating people? 

It used to be in my mum’s bedroom when I was a little kid. I used to put her nightdresses on and I’d be Judy Garland. It’s what I love to do. I’ll do it until I’m 90.

Which was the hardest transformation to achieve? 

I wanted to do a series of national treasures, which I think we have in England. Maggie Smith’s really hard, I don’t know if we quite got the look right, but I think it’s really interesting to know that Maggie was Kenneth Williams’ flatmate years ago. You listen to her voice and think maybe it rubbed off on her. And who knew Judi Dench was a kleptomaniac? I hope they take it in the right spirit! I don’t think they’re aware that I’ve impersonated them, but I’m sure they’ll find out. I hope that they don’t hate me for this.

Copycat: Tracey as 80s pop star Toyah Wilcox 

I just think we have wonderful older actresses here who aren’t afraid to look old – in fact, when America needs a mother they have to import one of ours because US women have done so much to their faces because they don’t want to look over 60.

Would you ever consider having cosmetic surgery? 

I haven’t got looks to lose, that’s my theory. I looked like a troll when I was six, I look like a troll now. There’s not a lot you can do about it.

Do the costumes take a long time to get into? 

For Judi I had a bit of body padding so I had to wear a cooling device - I was attached to a tube that would cool me down. You just have to be patient and just relax when you’re in that stuff, because sometimes you can panic a bit.

You do Judi and Maggie in the new show, who else is in the line of fire?

I’m fascinated by Angela Merkel, I imagine she’s someone that has to be with men all the time, in these rooms having meetings and I wondered what she’s like when she’s with her best friend and they just talk about hair and make-up?’ I also pay tribute to Rebecca Brooks.

Meetings: Angela Merkel 

Did you also sing the theme tune to the new show? 

Yes! I love singing, it was a bit of a laugh in the 80s but then I promised my children I would never, ever release another song because they’re so embarrassed by me.

You’ve had an amazingly long career, what are you most proud of? 

 Longevity! Just keeping going, keeping working. And my children are extraordinary, I am so proud of them. They’re great English-American hybrid people and very supportive.

Your children have gone on to be huge successes in their own right haven’t they? 

Yes, my son is working in the writers’ room on James Corden’s Late Late show in LA and he’s having a wonderful time. His father was a great producer and he learned a lot from him. Obviously I’m a bit biased but I think the kid’s a genius! My daughter works for a medical charity right now, she’s very involved in politics and wants to be a politician. She worked in the Houses of Parliament for five years and is doing very well.

Do you have any regrets from your years in showbiz?

I wish I’d got to No1 – but Karma Chameleon hung on. I wish Boy George had let me. When Kid Jensen announced I still hadn’t made number one, I was really p****d off. I mean, I wore that pink lurex miniskirt for WEEKS. With all the dry ice on flipping Top of the Pops, and I still didn’t make it. It still hurts. How did working with your late husband help your career? The ability to just do my own thing came from working with him. He was an extraordinary influence on me and on what I achieved.

Will you date again? 

 Oh, who knows?

 Tracey Ullman’s Show starts on January 11, 10.35pm, BBC1.
