Theatre Review: The Man In The White Suit, Wyndham's Theatre

I was faced with a slightly awkward situation when it came to reviewing The Man In The White Suit. I couldn’t get to the press night but had two tickets for the second night so invited a friend. Then in the morning I read the reviews, which mainly ranged from three stars to a rather mean-seeming one star in The Times. So what’s the etiquette? Tell my friend not to come? Cancel my own ticket? Or be professional and go and book a nice table for dinner as pre-emptive compensation?

TV: Hang Ups, Channel 4

Boy oh boy that Stephen Mangan has a hell of a work ethic. As well as appearing in lots of other shows he now stars in Hang Ups, a UK version of the US hit Web Therapy, in which he plays online therapist Richard Pitt. Not only that but it's made by his production company. And he also writes it. Well, I say writes it, the programme is largely devised via improvisation with a stellar cast. And judging by the first episode it works a treat.

TV Review, Bliss, Sky One

When I heard that American comedian David Cross was writing a comedy starring Stephen Mangan as an Englishman with two families who do not know about each other I assumed that one family would be in America, one in the UK. Maybe the budget didn't stretch that far. On the other hand there is plenty of additional tension as both families live in Bristol.
