Does comedy attract emotional fuck-ups or does a comedy career turn people into emotional fuck-ups? It’s a question that has been asked more and more in recent years. There were umpteen shows about mental health in Edinburgh this summer and I also tackled the subject in my book, plug plug, Beyond A Joke.

TV Preview: Happyish, Showtime USA

Steve Coogan has always had difficulty shaking off Alan Partridge. The Norfolk bore was there in his Tony Wilson in 24 Hour Party People, there in The Trip and there were even flashes of him in his serious role in Philomena. So with Happyish, about a middle-aged ad executive in crisis when a young team takes over the firm it is interesting to note that there is not a hint of Alan, even though the workplace side of the plot has an echo of the new broom in the Partridge movie Alpha Papa.

Review: Barry Humphries, London Palladium

Who invented character comedy? Was it Graham Fellows with John Shuttleworth? Steve Coogan with Alan Partridge, Paul Calf et al? A strong case can be made for Barry Humphries, whose show at the Palladium ends with a video cavalcade featuring all sorts of Humphries creations that I'd never even come across, from hairy hippies to socialist academic, Neil Singleton.
