TV Review: Live at the Apollo, Episode 2, BBC1

The second edition of the tenth, yes, tenth, series of Live at the Apollo was hosted by Jason Manford, who is about as safe a pair of hands as you can  get on TV. And I mean that in a good way. Some comedians are good live but don't seem able to make the smoothest of trnaditions to the small screen. Manford makes comedy on TV look like a doddle.

New Interview: Doc Brown

Ben Bailey Smith, aka Doc Brown, is becoming an increasing familiar face on our TV screens as an actor.

Classic Interview: Doc Brown

2013 is shaping up to be good year for Doc Brown. He appeared alongside Ricky Gervais in C4 comedy Derek and the professional relationship continued when Brown co-starred with David Brent in the Comic Relief video Equality Street. I interviewed Brown in 2010 when he first made a splash at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
