News: Stars Pay Tribute To Ronnie Corbett At Memorial Service

Stars from the showbusiness world have paid tribute to Ronnie Corbett at a memorial service at Westminster Abbey.

The much-loved entertainer died on March 31 last year at the age of 85.

Speaking outside the Abbey Rob Brydon said “he wasn’t that different really off screeen. He was warm, generous, just a lovely man.”

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."

TV Preview: The Trip To Spain, Sky Atlantic

Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon have crossed the channel again for another instalment in their ongoing effort to eat and quip their way around the planet. In fact they’ve crossed the channel in two senses - the first episode starts with them getting on a ferry (though not the one Brydon usually advertises) and is being broadcast on Sky Atlantic rather than BBC2 this time round.

News: Transmission Date Revealed For The Trip To Spain

The transmission date has been revealed for The Trip to Spain starring Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon.

The eagerly anticipated third instalment of their comedic gastronomic travels will be broadcast on Sky Atlantic starting on April 6. 

Theatre Review: The Painkiller, Garrick Theatre

My partner couldn’t join me for Francis Veber’s The Painkiller last night as she was at the theatre elsewhere. She had gone to see a play by another French writer, Jean Genet’s The Maids, at Trafalgar Studios. In an ideal world The Painkiller should have been at the Trafalgar – it used to be the Whitehall Theatre, London’s home of farce. And there isn't a more farcical – in a Good Way – play in the West End at the moment than this romp starring Kenneth Branagh and Rob Brydon.


Theatre Review: Future Conditional, Old Vic

Rob Brydon certainly keeps himself busy. Next month he is doing a gig with Tom Jones, next year he is in a play with Kenneth Branagh. And it’s theatre that is keeping him busy at the moment. Brydon is the undisputed star name in Future Conditional, the first production at the Old Vic under new artistic director Matthew Warchus.


TV Review: Would I Lie To You?, BBC1

Maybe I was out when the trumpets were blowing but it seemed to me that Would I Lie To You? slipped back onto BBC1 on Friday night for its ninth, yes, ninth, series without much of a fanfare. Which is a shame. This is one of my favourite panel shows. It is devoid of cynicism, packed full of laughs. It's one of the few panel shows clean enough to go out pre-watershed, but it is never, ever boring.

News: Rob Brydon Round-Up – TV, Stage, Documentary

Sir Tom Jones and Rob Brydon are joining forces for a night of music and entertainment in aid of Children In Need. The show will take place on October 8 at Wembley Arena. Tickets are now on sale here. It will also be broadcast on BBC One during the week of the annual BBC Children in Need Appeal which this year takes place on Friday November 13th.  


TV Review: Sunday Night At The Palladium, ITV1

It’s been interesting to see the way that comedians from the live circuit have recently dipped their toes into mainstream TV waters. Sara Pascoe, Joe Wilkinson and Joe Lycett are among the acts to have succumbed to the lure of the revived Celebrity Squares and then there is that ITV1 attempt at reanimating an even older corpse, Sunday Night at the Palladium.

News: Exclusive Clip From The Trip To Italy DVD

Need an extra helping of Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon's brilliantly tasty gastronomic tour of Italy? Then wait no longer. The DVD of their latest series, The Trip To Italy, is out next Monday, but just to whet your appetite here is one of the previously unseen extras from it in which affable but-not-quite-as-affable as his TV persona Rob Brydon persuades Steve Coogan to do an impression of former Labour Party leader Neil Kinnock as they cruise through Tuscany.
