News: Poetic TV Licence From Kevin Eldon

Comedian Kevin Eldon has teamed up with TV Licensing to make some short films about the genuine excuses people have used to explain why they have not paid for their TV licence. Such as being busy giving their sick goldfish CPR. 

Eldon plays poet Adrian Holt, who has turned these excuses into limericks. Watch them below.

Live Review, Live at the Chapel with James Acaster, Kevin Eldon, Jayde Adams, Carl Donnelly, John Robins

When the pioneering Invisible Dot organisation closed down in 2016 there was a fear that the regular Union Chapel gigs promoted by ID might come to an end too. There have been lots of memorable nights at this Islington church over the years and luckily for the comedy world promoter Will Briggs has picked up the baton. Briggs is clearly a shrewd man, even if last night’s compere John Robins described him as looking like a stoner out of Point Break.

TV Review: Damned, C4

After Getting On and Going Forward Damned feels like the third part in a trilogy of gritty state-of-the-nation workplace comedies starring Jo Brand. But in fact this one, set in a childrens social services office, actually predates Going Forward. A one-off pilot went out on Sky Arts in 2014 but for whatever reason it is C4 that has made this six-part series. And I bet it cost them a lot less than The Great British Bake Off.

Competition: Win Tickets for British Summer Time

The British Summer Time Festival's comedy shows in Hyde Park kick off on Monday and Beyond The Joke has a pair of free tickets up for grabs for each of the following gigs:

July 8: The Comedy Store Players

Preview: The Week Ahead June 17 - 23

An early Week Ahead this week, as it involves a big gig at the start of the week that might take some forward planning. Bill Bailey's recent tours have taken in venues of contrasting sizes, from arenas – or "enormodomes", as I think he was the first to dub them – to the Royal Albert Hall,  Leicester Square Theatre and larger West End Theatres.

Opinion: Bragging Rights & Superstore Superstars

I enjoyed Billy Bragg's latest album Tooth & Nail when it came out earlier this year and now, thanks to Johnny Vegas, Kevin Eldon, Stewart Lee, Ross Noble, Ricky Grover, Phill Jupitus, Neil Morrissey and Samuel West I've been enjoying the track Handyman Blues again. In case you haven't heard, Johnny Vegas directed the other names mentioned plus the Barking Bard in the video for the song.

Opinion: Best Sketch Ever?*

Sunday 14/4/13 Coincidence corner. NBC's Saturday Night Live in America did a punk spoof this week as a tribute to Margaret Thatcher, which included their own Grundy/Pistols parody. Not as good as Eldon of course, but they got the colour of the set pretty close.
