Authentic and Touching
26 May 2011 | by (London) – See all my reviews

This film has a couple notable firsts: first directing role for Ben Miller, first non "Noel Clarke" Noel Clarke role. The film delves deep into the underbelly of the stand up world. It's a sometimes brutal but touching depiction of two guys trying to make it in comedy and it holds no punches. I love Noel Clarke and thought this film was brilliant as it showed him doing an entirely new type of role--it's certainly nothing like I'd seen him in before. Johnny Harris is also terrific, it's nice to see him getting meaty roles (more please!). The rest of the cast (Thandie Newton, Michelle Ryan, Eddie Izzard, etc) are, of course, great and really round it out. Definitely enjoyable. Great film.
