  1. From the team that brought you Black Dynamite, comes a new hero. BD is excellent and peerless, so really looking forward to this one. Michael Jai White is a god.
  2. Based on the 2014 documentary of the same name: It feels like I've been hearing about this movie for a very long time. It was shot before COVID, and then had reshoots a year or so ago to replace Armine Hammer with Will Arnett.
  3. This is a tremendously funny New Zealand comedy panel show hosted by Guy Montgomery, who was in the S-rank season 2 of Taskmaster NZ, and is one half of The Worst Idea of All Time podcast in which he and a mate watch the same terrible film every week for a year and talk about/around it. He did a dry-run of this show on Zoom during the height of Covid but has since got it commissioned on the NZ channel 'Three'. The premise is it's a spelling bee, but performed like a gameshow with a pretty arbitrary set of rules and rounds. It's a little difficult to explain how the setup works but it's very very funny. It's sort of a bit of a Taskmaster/No More Jockeys type affair - Guy Montgomery seems to really understand how to use a loose competitive/not-actually-competitive structure to provide space for good comedians to flourish, and he's sort of channeling Greg Davies' character of The Taskmaster but in his own weird kind of way via one of the mad gameshow hosts that Bill Hader used to play in SNL skits. (forgive the appalling TikTok-style editing in that video, the show isn't actually edited like that but it's difficult to find clips of this to share) It's great, basically. Unfortunately not watchable on Three's player without a VPN, but the episodes are being shared via /r/panelshow which you can stream from Google Drive. The first episode feels like a pilot and the tone seems like it was tweaked ever so slightly from E2 onwards, so if you enjoy the first but think it's only ok I would say give the second one a chance and you may love it Episode 1 Episode 2 Episode 3 Episode 4 Episode 5 Episode 6
  4. Just watched the third episode. Don Glover is a hip-hop manager (I think, it's unclear just now) who manages his cousin 'Paperboy' who's just scored a breakout hit. However, he's still slinging drugs. Highest ratings for a comedy on FX. Really enjoyed the first three episodes, it's got this weird tone to it, quite trippy. Anyone else watching yet?
  5. No 2019 Wipe, but there is this. Only five-minute episodes unfortunately. https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m000cff3 He then tweeted pictures of the Other Humans, finishing with... who else?
  6. Couldn'd find a thread, but wondered if others have watched this? It's by the Parks and Rec team (or some of them). It's an odd mix of endearing, funny and intriguing - with both bite and warmth. (You can feel the similarities to their previous shows despite the complete difference in story and setting) It shouldn't work but the actors (Bell and Danson in particular) do some heavy lifting that you can't help buying into their world and troubles. I'm up to 1x07 (Nine episodes have aired) and I'm really enjoying it - they nail the end of episode whammy!
  7. Anyone been watching this? (Note, very different to the similarly titled BBC sitcom 'The Other One'!) Wikipedia blurb: I absolutely adored the first series a couple of years back and I am currently working through series 2. Kind of the sitcom sweet spot at 10 episodes per series x 25 mins which helps - it mercilessly lampoons internet pop culture and social media (and the twist at the end of series 1 is inspired) and it just seems to be getting funnier. It started out on Comedy Central and Channel 4 but has since moved to HBO Max, I'm not sure what this means for a UK release but I'd really recommend tracking it down.
  8. @ImmaculateClump flagged this in the Nathan for You thread, but I think it deserves its own thread. Essentially, documentarian John Wilson narrates his stilted feelings on fairly inane topics, juxtaposing his words with often ironic b-roll footage and incredibly awkward interviews. Every episode makes me properly laugh out loud at least twice, and it’s really good. It has the awkwardness of Nathan For You, but Wilson is also a warmer, more sensitive soul. A bit like a hipster version of Joe Pera Talks With You. Unfortunately, you can’t watch it legally anywhere in the UK. So, y’know. There’s that.
  9. "A neurotic mid 20's suburbanite's convinced he's destined to be one of the greatest rappers of all time. Now he's got to prove it to everyone else." Dave is an American comedy television series that premiered on FXX on March 4, 2020, co-created by rapper/comedian Lil Dicky, who plays the titular character, and Jeff Schaffer.[1] Kevin Hart and Greg Mottola form part of the production team for the series. Mottola also directed several episodes of the first season. On May 11, 2020, the series was renewed for second season.[2] Lil Dicky's real-life hype-man GaTa, plays himself. GaTa, in the TV series and in real-life, lives with bipolar disorder.[3] https://www.justwatch.com/uk/tv-series/dave https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episodes/p08b9fpl/dave --------------------------------------------------- I've just seen that the second series is out, and I remembered that I hadn't seen a topic for the show yet, I really enjoy the music of Lil' Dicky and the TV show was a no-brainer for me. I really enjoyed the first series, and I am looking forward to getting stuck into the second. Not everyone's cup of tea but if you want to try something new then i recommend it!
  10. So, Motherland was initially a comedy pilot last year for BBC Two and thanks to good audience response it was commissioned. The writing team includes Graham Linehan (Father Ted, IT Crowd) and Sharon Horgan (Catastrophe), and actors include Anna Maxwell Martin as career woman Anna and the brilliant Diane Morgan as single mum Liz. The first episode featured a chaotic birthday party, with a racist entertainer and a sick birthday girl. Anyone else watching, or identifying strongly with the characters?
  11. I binged the whole series of this on the Iplayer yesterday and it's great - about two young lads from Elephant and Castle trying to make it as entrepreneurs. Very funny, likeable characters and some surreal moments (A guy in armour on a horse turns up in one episode - "you man seen Iago? Tell him I'm looking for him"). You would have seen star and writer Kayode Ewumi as the American Lets guy in Stath Lets Flats and also apparently from that head-tapping meme!
  12. I watch American comedy TV series, and four-quadrant blockbusters with a lot of jokes (like the MCU), but I don't often watch things that are just marketed as broad comedy films. I have a massive blind spot when it comes to the last 20 years of live-action US comedy movies, and the cast members who came from things like SNL. For example, when reviews of the 2016 Ghostbusters came out, I saw a lot of people criticising the improv-reliant style of a lot of Apatow/Feig US comedies, but I don't think I've seen any examples of what they were talking about. I think 21 Jump Street is pretty much the most recent thing I've seen and liked (and I watched it purely because of Lord & Miller rather than because of any of the stars). I've never seen Superbad, Knocked Up, Bridesmaids, 40-Year-Old Virgin, Dodgeball, or any of the Hangover films. In fact if it's a live-action film that includes any of the following names, I probably haven't seen it: Judd Apatow Paul Feig Seth Rogen Melissa McCarthy Jason Segel Ben Stiller Adam Sandler (I've only seen Punch-Drunk Love and the Hotel Transylvania films. The consensus seems to be that I should consider myself lucky.) Bill Hader Paul Rudd (apart from Ant-Man) Kristen Wiig Steve Carell Will Ferrell Things I've heard are good: Spy (seems to be considered McCarthy's best movie?) Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping Things I have seen: 21 Jump Street Tropic Thunder Anchorman (I liked a few jokes, but not enough for it to live up to its reputation ) The first two Meet the Parents/Fockers films and Zoolander... but that's going back even further! Sausage Party (animated, but I mention it because it features some of the names in the list above. But apart from the Alan Menken song, I really disliked it. ) What's worth watching?
  13. So this is on Netflix. It's literally just Hannah Gadsby doing her new comedy set at the Opera House. It runs for just over an hour. I don't know how to sum it up. It's about non-comformity. The trap of self-depreciation. Art history. It's funny in places, incredibly confronting in others. It's worth its own thread.
  14. Not a fan at all, but I've always found Morrissey's interviews good value for money and always considered him to be self-aware and at least having a sense of his own ridiculousness. I'm really taken aback by how defensive and unable to take criticism he is in this video. I never thought I'd hear Morrissey, of all people, refer to journalists as "haters", for goodness sake, and his moaning about his record not being played because of some organised conspiracy against him is just pitiful, paranoid and completely off base. The stuff he says about journalists having an agenda against him is simply based on his new record not being very good and his complete lack of relevance to anyone under 40, not some carefully constructed masterplan to undermine him by sending negative messages to his fanbase via the music press. Concluding his miserable little moan with a sickeningly cynical message to the victims of the Manchester bombing completely undermined any credibility he might have had left. Terrible cunt.
  15. Know who Mitzi Shore is? You should probably be watching I'm Dying up Here, Showtime's new Sunday night one hour drama about the Los Angeles comedy circuit, mostly focused around one club, very closely based on The Comedy Store. Melissa Leo play's basically Mitzi Shore, who gave loads of massive comedians their big break by putting them up at the club. I'm only really a part-time comedy nerd, most of what I know I've gleaned from comedians podcasts over the years, but I'm still loving this. It's really well acted, evocative of the time period through spot on detailing. With heavy like hitters Melissa Leo and Alfred Molina and being exec produced by Jim Carrey I thought it would be getting more promotion and love, but it's on the fifth episode tomorrow and it's not really getting much buzz at all, want to fix that so it gets a second series, as I'd like to see an eighties and nineties version.
  16. Now that BBC Three is online only they seem to have also gone all "edgy" with their social media and content. I just saw this clip (because it's all about the clips) of the show The Real Housewives of ISIS. It's a comedy. Facebook video - Mirror at vid.me The reaction seems quite mixed; some people feel like this is unacceptable / insensitive, with others defending the show because 'if shows like Family Guy mock ISIS, why can't the BBC' - to paraphrase. Where do you stand?
  17. Just wanted to share a webseries I was part of quite a while back but the first episode has just finally been released online. It's called 'Road To FA Cup' and is a 6 part mockumentary based around a fiction semi-pro football team, the Croydon Terriers, who have just been entered into the FA Cup for the first time in their history at the same time that they have just been bought by a playboy millionaire. Hope you enjoy! (I play Ian 'Speedo' Davies and was a good 4 stone heavier at the time!) http://youtu.be/zumZ-naIGTs www.roadtofacup.com
