Recently caught up with his 2014 show: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ohqspB-yHY

He's as incisive as ever, but does seem like he uses more filler with media-parody characters (the great Doug Stanhope is obviously not in that category) and a hell of a lot more restraint than he used to, since he's been embraced by the mainstream and gets more exposure. Still by far one of the best comedy writers ever, though. I'd especially recommend any of his stuff for people who look at UK mainstream media and culture from an outside perspective and think that it really represents us.
