Dara O Briain interview: comedy, Isle Of Man, IMDb

24 November 2015 10:11 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




Dara O Briain chats to us about tough gigs, writing books, touring, and comedy...

Dara O Briain's latest stand-up show, Crowd Tickler, makes it onto DVD this week, having already enjoyed a digital release. It's an excellent show, and a week or two back - just as the UK leg of his tour was drawing to a close - we got the chance to speak with the man himself about it. Here's how it went...

I caught a really good Ed Byrne gig the other week. And what impressed me about it most is that it's a long time since I've seen a comedian have to battle uphill for a good hour and a half against as dead a crowd as I've seen in a long time.


Yeah. A Tuesday night in a place you have to drive to. Not a very giving crowd.

46 years ago today: ‘Sesame Street’ premiered

10 November 2015 5:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

46 years ago today, “Sesame Street” aired its first episode. Back then, in 1969, Oscar the Grouch was orange, Big Bird was the village idiot, and Elmo and Abby Cadabby weren’t even a glimmer in anyone’s eye. Soon Jim Henson introduced us to the green monster living in a trash can we all know, Big Bird’s character was reworked to be a curious, 6-year-old child, and more new Muppets came to populate that street where the air is sweet.  The educational program has aired in over 120 countries and remains a staple in childhoods all around the world. Other notable November 10 happenings in pop culture history: • 1931: The 4th Academy Awards were held at the Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles. Honoring films released between August 1, 1930 and July 31, 1931, the ceremony awarded Best Picture to “Cimarron,” the first Western to win the award and the only one to do so until “Dances with Wolves »

Ever since then, both rappers have been on a social media tirade against the Independence Day actress, posting unflattering photos and memes about her. The story quickly went viral, which ultimately resulted in Fox apologizing to Soulja Boy. "Let me say this!! Wasn't speaking about @souljaboy only my Ex and his antics!

The X Factor 2015: Who has replaced Voiceover Man Peter Dickson? 5 things you need to know about Redd Pepper

26 October 2015 3:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

As Peter Dickson himself might have boomed: arrrrre yooouuu rrrrready? Because as The X Factor kicked off its first live shows this weekend, there was a surprise in store: a new voiceover man.

Peter 'Rachel Adedeji' Dickson announced a couple of months ago that he'd decided to quit the show and take his booming voice with him, and so this weekend we heard a very slight snatch of a new voiceover introducing the show. But who's the man behind that American twang?

1. His name is Redd Pepper - and he honed his craft by being a Tube driver

Here are the basics. Unsurprisingly, Redd Pepper is not his real name: the 54-year-old was born Richardson Green in Barbados. He moved to London when he was young and grew up to be a Tube driver, where he'd make silly announcements on the tannoy.

‘Concussion’: Will Smith’s Career as Box Office Star and Oscar Nominated Actor

21 October 2015 3:00 AM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Patrick Shanley

Managing Editor

Will Smith has been a major box office earner for nearly two decades, but recent years have seen some low points in the star’s career, with 2012’s Men in Black 3 and 2013’s After Earth both underperforming. Though the star is known primarily for big summer blockbusters, he has received recognition from the Academy for his work in serious dramas.

This year, with the release of the controversial football-centered film Concussion, Smith is hoping to reassert himself as a serious actor and garner further attention from Oscar. With a Christmas release slated for the film, however, it will have stiff competition at not just the box office, but for awards season momentum as David O. Russell‘s Joy, Quentin Tarantino‘s The Hateful EightAlejandro G. Iñárritu‘s The Revenant, and Adam McKay‘s The Big Short are all opening that week with big Oscar potential. »
