News: Would I Lie To You? Team To Appear Onstage

It has been reported that Would I Lie To You? stars Rob Brydon, Lee Mack and David Mitchell will tour the UK together next year.

This is not, however, billed as a stage version of their BBC panel show hit.

A run of shows has just been announced at the Everyman Theatre in Cheltenham from Monday March 19 to Thursday March 22, 2018. The gigs, which quickly sold out, are billed as an evening of "chat, questions and generally messing around."

Theatre Review: The Miser, Garrick Theatre

I read an early review of this production of The Miser where it was described as a “mugfest”. I asked my partner to come with me. She loves a mugfest after a hard day's work. And true enough this very loose adaptation of the Moliere classic starring Griff Rhys Jones and Lee Mack is very much a mugfest. Not much more, but definitely a mugfest.

TV: Not Going Out, BBC1

Has Lee Mack become a time traveller? In the new series of Not Going Out he suddenly has three children, all around primary/infant school age, whereas a year ago he had only just become a father for the first time. Apparently the new series of Not Going Out is set seven years on. But don’t expect any hoverboards or meals served in pill form.

News: Big Mack For Small Fries

Review: Frank Skinner On Demand With..., BBC iPlayer

I wasn’t sure whether to review this series. Judging by the first episode Frank Skinner’s latest BBC online show is basically 20 minutes-worth of plugs for other BBC online shows with a few gags lobbed in. Each week Skinner is joined by a special guest from the comedy world and they conduct their chin-wag in a place where the guest watches online programmes.

News: Lee Mack Wins Let's Play Darts For Comic Relief

Lee Mack and darts World Champion Martin 'Wolfie' Adams have won the Let's Play Darts trophy. They beat Tim Vine and darts pro Darryl Fitton in the final this evening.


DVD Review: Lee Mack – Hit The Road Mack

Lee Mack’s brand of comedy feels so old school at times I’m surprised he has brought out a DVD. His demographic would probably prefer it to be on VHS. That’s a good joke but maybe a little unfair. Mack is is a fabulous classic stand-up entertainer. He might have slotted nicely into the old 1970s Granada TV series The Comedians, but he also fits nicely into today's light entertainment firmament.
