Competition: Win Free Tickets For Harry Hill

A new comedy night opens in London this Thursday called Guerilla Busfare and you have to admire its ambitious manifesto: “It’s a celebration of creative, alternative comedy and it comes in all shapes, sizes and formats. We want people to come to the night and experience live comedy in all it’s glorious unpredictability, to be challenged, to be uplifted and to become a key part of the show. This is going to be one of those nights where you spend the rest of evening wondering what you’ve just seen.


TV Review: Harry Hill's Stars In Their Eyes, ITV1, Episode 3

This has had, shall we say, mixed reviews so far, so let's see how episode three goes...

It's Tom Jones and his mobile buttocks. Very Vic & Bob...

Harry does seem to have worked out whether he is interviewing the contestants or doing his bit to the viewers.

Nathan from Oldham – barman, student and the world's worst Michael Buble impression? Actually he looks like him already. Oh, he hasn't really changed except put a suit on.

Back to your bunk bed!


TV Review: Harry Hill's Stars In Their Eyes, ITV1

Can lightning strike twice? Can Harry Hill work his surreal TV Burp magic on this revival of the creaky old Stars In Their Eyes formula. It’s a programme that is almost beyond parody, but ripe for a send-up. Everyone seems to have had a go, from Vic & Bob two decades ago to Backchat only last week when they dusted off the old "Tonight Matthew..." line. So how did Hill’s version fare? 


DVD Review: Harry Hill – Sausage Time

I don’t often see live comedy shows twice but I made an exception with Sausage Time. I enjoyed it so much when I reviewed it I returned with family and friends and it didn't disappoint me, even though I knew what was coming.

Opinion: Is Comedy Too Busy Laughing To Bare Its Teeth?

The world seems determined to laugh at itself at the moment. Co-producer Simon Cowell is sending himself up rotten in I Can’t Sing! while the BBC is ensuring that it is the butt of the joke in W1A on BBC2.

Opinion: British Comedy Movies v US Comedy Movies

I'm getting increasingly excited by the prospect of The World's End coming out this summer. The trailers are tantalising, the cast is a classy roll-call of comedy's top brass and the team behind it has already made some of the few recent truly successful British comedy movies.

Review: Brian Gittins, Soho Theatre

It's comedy, but not as we know it. Brian Gittins has been on the circuit for a few years now, but his popularity has gained some purchase recently, thanks to his appearance in the Ricky Gervais series Derek as sad, sex-obsessed loser Kev. He might be playing a small room in the Soho Theatre but he has just extended his run. I recommend you go, but I also recommend you get there early enough to grab a seat at the back.
