Recommend

David Axelord : If only someone could cut into a piece of fruit and answer this question once and for all...

Tom Bainbridge : I'd watch big talk if it was a real program

Luke Alexander : —Well, there is no yes-or-no answer. —What! I can think of two yes-or-no answers, just off the top of my head! This is brilliant!

Kasey Escape : last line is brilliant

B. Hagedash : Are agnostics spineless fence sitters? I couldn't say.

Bennings : This perfectly sums up religious debates on the internet

Miles Leavitt : Brilliant sketch. Too bad those in the comment section didn't quite get the point.

Josh O'Brien : "OH MAKE THE TEA!" Correct response to agnostics.

Chrisfs : I was about to comment, but then realized the comments thread are an amazing extension of the sketch itself. Mitchell and Webb and not simply awesome, they are META-AWESOME!

Stephen Wright : pretty hilarious that people are actually arguing does god exist underneath this comedy sketch video...

Tim Lake : I love using that response to "There is no yes or no answer". Good one to break out in meetings, along with "Oh make the tea!" when someone just sits on the fence.

Adrian Peace : Donald Trump loves Big Talk

Lookoutitsdomke : It would surely be much simpler to say that there is not a single piece of evidence to suggest that there is a god and it is just easiest to assume there isn't. Much like how we do with unicorns, fairies, and midgets.

vonteflon : 1:08 Johnson!

Minkki82 : You can't prove a god exists or that none exist so the answer would be "we don't know for sure but there's no evidence that one exists so probably not"

Sabrina Evans : God does  exist he lives in a church down the road.. So just go knock on the door any time of day or night and he will answer it. Lets see how many angry vicars we can create by late night door knocking.

Zachs Mind : There may or may not be a god. If you believe in a god that you can't prove, then your god does not exist. There may be a god of some sort out there that vaguely fits your idea of a god, but at best, you won the lottery. That's coincidence, and not prophetic clairvoyance. Based on what we currently know, any god imagined by mankind thus far is highly unlikely. So there is no reason to believe in a god.

andrehitsoy : I actively believe that there isn't a yellow car parked outside my house right now (not looking out the window). I acknowledge the fact that there MIGHT be, as well as cars of any colour, but I've never seen a yellow car there, and statistically there's more of a chance of the spaces being filled with silver, white and black cars, so I choose to firmly place my bets on there NOT being a yellow car there. Atheist.

fishyc150 : It certainly is a yes/no answer. It's that people don't know the answer.

Ian G : Captain Rik Mayall Flashard ?

DemstarAus : Agnostic means not knowing. If your position is that you are unsure of the exsistence of god, you are not convinced that it exists, and you are an atheist.

David Eberhardt : Love Robert Webb, but this part should have gone to Chris Morris.

Bainbow : Agnosticism for the win!

Necrobadger : When tasked with a question based on something it's impossible to prove, you have to go with the most likely answer, regardless of anyone's feelings or ideals. So no, there is not a god, that is the absolute answer until new information becomes available. Easy.

Mantis Toboggan : this question was answered by a melon in another sketch of theirs.

Adam Mangler : ... one minute and 27 seconds - that's longer than anyone should spend on the question :0)

troglodyto : for the morons out there, this is a satire on televised panels

Brandon Martin-Moore : This is perfect.

Joachim Schoder : Yes/No-question #1: Are you mental?

MrShepperson : Nicky Campbell take note...

GameToon : "I can think of two yes or no answers just off the top of my head!" I've got to use that sometime

8Rincewind : That point about "There is no Yes or No answer is perfect."

ResoundGuy : FAKE NEWS

UberOcelot : Well, one of the yes or no answers is yes. But what's the other one?

wishingwell12345 : Oh make the tea!

reelle Zahl : +BlitzTankTV Errrm, David Mitchell IS an agnostic. He's against the angry atheist and distances himself from them. The point of this sketch ist to point out how ridiculous unenlightened (= post Kritik der reinen Vernunft, Kant) black-and-white thinking, typical of the last few instant-this-that-and-the-other generations, is.

Knightfall8 : just checking on whether we've gotten this sorted yet

Jason : No

arc450 : Absolutely hilarious. Robert Webb is brilliant in this.

James Lawson Animates : IT'S IM-POR-TANT!

oilymutt : Beautiful skit about pompous TV presenters goading guests into an argument....not unlike the Yootoob comments section.

coolbanana165 : Probably not. :)

indiciaobscure : Is this based off an actual British host?

FunkySeeFunkyDo : Johnson!

BillHicks420 : They are wrong about what agnosticism means.

bluewave 2018/2020 : answer is no. if yes, step up and claim your prize...

Christy O'Faghan : there's plenty of evidence that God exists and anyone who disagrees is being unscientific

Daniel Rhodes : I don't think there being a God or not should matter on this plane of existence. If you uphold good morals and believe in the virtues of truth and goodness, then whether it be out of your own principle or a fear of consequences from a higher being shouldn't apply.

Gaming Atheist : Lol most conversations online.

mrbtapir : This is a less good rip off of A Partridge Over Britain.
