BFI London Film Festival 2015: ‘SNL’ doc ‘Live from New York!’ lacks bite

7 October 2015 5:53 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Live from New York!

Directed By Bao Nguyen

USA, 2015

Many successful comedians and comics are incubated in nurturing, yet deeply competitive environments. The various comedy clubs on the East and West coast of the Us spawned many of the post-war titans, such as Richard Pryor, Joan Rivers and George Carlin, bathing them in the blood of occasionally hostile, alcohol-fueled, combative audiences. In the UK, since the 1970’s both the Oxford and Cambridge performing arts groups have produced class-connected troupes and entities as diverse as Monty Python, Fry & Laurie, The It Crowd, Peep Show, and even John Oliver of Last Week Tonight, a solid grounding which would often lead to high profile series and sitcoms on UK terrestrial television.

In the USA, however, all roads lead to Saturday Night Live, the most famous and ingrained cultural osmosis of comedy and contemporary culture, which has gestated talents as diverse as Dan Aykroyd, »

Brian Blessed will play Matt Berry's dad on Toast of London series 3

29 September 2015 9:52 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Two of the best Big Shouty Men in the business, Matt Berry and Brian Blessed, are teaming up for series three of Channel 4 sitcom Toast of London.

Blessed will play the father of Berry's character, Steven Toast, in an episode that also has a cameo from Jon Hamm, the Radio Times has revealed.

That's right: Brian Blessed and Jon Hamm will feature in the same episode of Toast of London. Fingers crossed they get in the recording booth and shout "Fire the nuclear weapons!" while Clem Fandango looks on.

For those not in the know, Toast of London is a thoroughly bonkers sitcom that sees Matt Berry (The It Crowd, Garth Marenghi's Darkplace, The Mighty Boosh) as a bumbling actor whose distinctive voice sets him apart from pretty much everyone - apart from Brian Blessed, that is.

Jon Hamm, incidentally, will play himself in the show, with the joke »

The Martian review: MacGyver meets Robinson Crusoe in Ridley Scott's thrilling science lecture

28 September 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The Martian is Ridley Scott's best film in nearly 15 years. Part science lesson, part Robinson Crusoe drama, this is exciting and engaging filmmaking that reminds you just how good the seminal sci-fi director can be with the right script and the right story.

Helping this Matt-Damon-left-on-Mars survival thriller is a who's who of acting, producing and writing talent. From producer Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Days of Future Past, Sherlock Holmes) to screenwriter Drew Goddard (Cabin in the Woods, Daredevil), there's no weak link.

The crew that accidentally leave Damon's biologist Mark Watney on the red planet - Jessica Chastain, Michael Peña, Kate Mara, Sebastian Stan, Aksel Hennie - are good enough to warrant their own spin-off movie (though that would make absolutely no sense), while the Nasa bods back home are similarly strong, notably space programme head honcho Jeff Daniels, PR guru Kristen Wiig and Mars mission supervisor Chiwetel Ejiofor. »

Katherine Parkinson: ‘Comedy is instinctive – you don’t have to do any homework’

20 September 2015 12:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The actor talks sitcoms, clay modelling – and her knack of making a mess in the kitchen

Katherine Parkinson is an actor who works across comedy and drama, on stage, film and TV. A stalwart of The It Crowd, she has also appeared in Humans and The Honourable Woman and stars in new sitcom The Kennedys, a family comedy set in the 70s.

You’re a fan of Carla Lane’s 1970s sitcom Butterflies. Are you a student of sitcoms?

Yes I love Butterflies but I wouldn’t say I’m a student of sitcoms in the way that many people who work in comedy are. Some people have an extraordinary knowledge, almost geeky. But I’ve never been geeky about anything. It’s not in my nature. That said, growing up, sitcoms were what we watched together as a family: Only Fools and Horses, Dad’s Army and things like Butterflies, »

"I helped create you." The sinister side of artificial intelligence is teased in the first trailer for AMC's sci-fi series, Humans, premiering Sunday, June 28th at 9:00pm Est:

Press Release (via TV By the Numbers) -- New York, NY – May 14, 2015 – "AMC today announced its new eight-part drama series “Humans” will premiere Sunday, June 28th at 9:00 p.m. Et/Pt. Set in suburban London, “Humans” takes place in a parallel present where the latest must-have gadget for any busy family is a Synth – a highly developed, artificially intelligent servant eerily similar to its living counterpart.

5 parts of the Marvel universe practically begging to be TV shows

8 May 2015 9:32 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Last night, ABC announced a lot of great news for Marvel fans. Both “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” and “Agent Carter” were renewed for another year. But there was one casualty: the S.H.I.E.L.D. spin-off starring Mockingbird (Adrianne Palicki) and Hunter (Nick Blood) is dead in the water. Considering even fans like myself were questioning the need for Two shows starring S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, this isn’t too much of a surprise. However! Perhaps now ABC will be looking for another Marvel property to acquire and bake into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Lucky for them, I happen to have this handy list of Marvel lore just begging for the small screen treatment!   #1.

TV comedy’s top 10 jargon abusers

22 April 2015 4:11 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

To celebrate the return of W1A, we salute the top 10 comedy characters who talk absolute mother-thumping rubbish…

Yesnobrilliantverygoodverystrong. As satirical BBC mockumentary W1A returns tonight for a triumphant second series, we celebrate TV comedy’s rich lineage of jargon fans.

Drawn from across the political spectrum and from TV’s most biting depictions of the worlds of business, government, technology and the media, these guys are master obfuscators. They're neologism-coiners and proponents of the kind of abuses to the English language that, in a just world, would see them locked up and force fed copies of The Elements Of Style.

From The Thick Of It to Peep Show, Yes MinisterThe OfficeNathan BarleyThe Day Today, and Drop The Dead Donkey, across the Pond to 30 Rock and Silicon Valley, we present TV comedy's top ten full-of-it jargon-meisters.

The drama stars Katherine Parkinson (The It Crowd, The Honourable Woman) and Tom Goodman-Hill (The Devil's Whore, Mr Selfridge) as the couple who purchase Chan's Synth.

Matt Berry interview: Spongebob, Toast Of London, House Of Fools

26 March 2015 2:12 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Matt Berry chats to us about his voice work in the new Spongebob Squarepants movie, House Of Fools, music, and Toast Of London...

We like comedian and musician Matt Berry, and it's a good time to be a fan of him and his buttery-smooth baritone. He's currently strutting his stuff in the surreal Vic & Bob's House Of Fools, and his Rose D'Or winning comedy Toast Of London returns for a third series later this year.

Now he's in The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out Of Water, voicing a magic space dolphin called Bubbles. Now there's a sentence you rarely find yourself typing. So naturally we had to talk to him to find out all about it...

I've followed your work ever since Snuff Box, and The SpongeBob Movie might be the craziest role you've played, would you agree?

I don't know, I get involved in some fairly far-out things, namely in »
