Opinion: Should Comedians Change Their Act For Different Times?

If you’d had a medical examination that you felt was more intimate than it needed to be what would you do? Go to the General Medical Council? Go to the police? In the case of Greg Davies he turned it into one of the routines in his latest live show, You Magnificent Beast.

Interview: Nick Helm

I interviewed Nick Helm this summer for the London Evening Standard in the run-up to his new tour and new Dave TV series Eat Your Heart Out. You can read the original interview here but he said so much that I couldn't fit in that I've posted the interview transcript below.

TV: Eat Your Heart Out With Nick Helm, Dave

Nice work if you can get it. Nick Helm’s latest series is a mix of sitcom and food programme as he travels around meeting friends, family and heroes, gets to cook food and, on the downside, copes with breaking up with his girlfriend.

TV: Loaded, C4

Do people still make gazillions overnight out of internet start-ups? They certainly seem to if Loaded is anything to go by. Things happen even faster than overnight here. One moment cautious Josh (Jim Howick) is overdrawn and addicted to probiotic yoghurt, the next he has piles of money to burn. And probably still likes the odd Yakult.

Interview: The Cast Of Loaded, C4

Loaded, Channel 4's new comedy drama about tech entrepreneurs, starts on May 8 at 10pm. It stars TV comedy regulars Nick Helm, Jonny Sweet, Jim Howick and Samuel Anderson and many more familiar faces. They talk about the series below.


Tell us about Loaded?

Jim – Loaded is an eight part comedy series about four friends who invent a game for smartphones and sell it for 300 million dollars. It’s about how they deal with their immediate fortune and the fall out of that.

TV: Uncle, Series 3, Episode 7

And so it’s finally time to say goodbye to Andy and Errol in the last episode of the last series of Uncle. Sob. Reviewers have been asked not to reveal spoilers so I’m going to fight every journalistic fibre in my body and resist the urge to splurge. 


News: Nick Helm Announces Big UK Tour

British Comedy Award winner, double Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee, BAFTA nominated filmmaker and star of BBC3’s Uncle, Heavy Entertainment, Live at the Apollo and regular on 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, Nick Helm sets off on his first national tour later this year to bring his unique blend of high octane stand up, music and poetry to the people.

Review: Uncle, BBC3, Episode 3

There is lots going on in the third episode of the final series of Uncle. Things seem to be looking up for the music career of Andy (Nick Helm). After producing a recording session for newcomer Jasmine (Emily Bevan), he finds himself embarking on a drug-fuelled bender with her, only to wake up in the morning and discover that they are engaged.


Review: Uncle, BBC3, Episode 2

This is just a quick heads up to remind people to watch the third series of Uncle, which looks like it is going to build to a nice – or maybe not so nice? – romantic finale in a few weeks.
