Stephen Mangan

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.

TV Preview, Episodes, BBC2

The first episode of the new series of Episodes makes me think of gangsters. The phone ringing at the start reminded me of the phone ringing at the start of Once Upon A Time In America, while there’s an air of The Godfather in the way that Beverly (Tamsin Greig) and Sean (Stephen Mangan) get dragged back just as they thought they had escaped the horrors of the American TV industry.

Classic Interview: Stephen Mangan & Sharon Horgan in Free Agents

Sharon Horgan and Stephen Mangan are pretty much established as two of our favourite comic actors. Horgan is riding high in C4's Catastrophe, Mangan is busy on various projects, including making Birthday for Sky Arts, a spin-off of Pregnant, the play he appeared in in which he plays a pregnant man. This interview dates from 2007 when they were shooting a pilot for a C4 sitcom set in the world of showbiz called Bitter and Twisted, but then changed to Free Agents. It ran for one series and deserved more.
