In other David Mitchell related news a trailer for a new movie ‘Gun Shy’ has just appeared online. Apparently this is the new title for ‘Salty’, the movie David filmed for last November. He appears for a split second holding up a tray in this trailer so see if you can spot him:

No doubt some of Robert and David’s teenage adventures will be documented. In other news here’s David’s Observer column that I apparently forgot to post last week:

David’s new pilot: Bring It On – What’s it all about?

david456.PNGLast night at the Leicester Square Theatre David, Hugh Dennis, Tom Allen, Angela Barnes and Ed Gamble recorded a new pilot produced by Mock The Week producer Dan Patterson. ‘Bring It On’ invited people to bring anything along to the recording with a story attached. Last night’s overall winner was a man who had attempted to clean yoghurt off his top on a date which eventually resulted in him burning a hole in it. There were various rounds with categories such as ‘Embarrassing dating stories’ or ‘regrettable purchases’ and with each of these the panel would offer up alternative embarrassing items of their own. It would be up to David to decide if the audience or the panel had won the round. The recording included an interval which made me wonder which TV channel this show might be for. At the end was an ‘Auction of Weirdness’ David and the gang would wander through the audience trying to decide on the weirdest item there. David  eventually decided a tupperware full of air from the day a couple had married 30 years ago won this round.

I thought it was a very funny show and was extremely well received by everyone there. We can only hope that Bring It On will make it to TV in the future.

Tickets for The Unbelievable Truth now available.

A little more about ‘Bring It On’ and ‘Back’

cropped-p967418588-51.jpgA few more details about ‘Bring it On’ have emerged. The show will apparently be a panel show of sorts with Hugh Dennis, Tom Allen and Angela Barnes being the guests for the pilot episode which will be trialled at The Leicester Square Theatre on the 25th July. Tickets are available here if you want to come along:

On a side note tickets are also available for WILTY? on there so get applying Mitchell fans!

Every audience member must bring an object. SRO’s press release says:

‘Showcasing everything from regrettable impulse buys to embarrassing family photos, inappropriate gifts to toe curling teenage love letters or even baffling family heirlooms to hideous items of clothing, the format combines the curiosity of the Antiques Roadshow with the spontaneous wit of Mock the Week. There’ll even be a cash prize for the best item on the night!’

So it appears to be a panel show with a bit of a gameshow twist. We still don’t know what TV channel this is being piloted for but we can probably assume it is TV.

Back

Meanwhile Mitchell and Webb are still filming back. Robert Webb said the pair were on a night shoot yesterday and we have a few new names joining the cast such as Louise Brealey as Cass. We also have a set date for autumn. Not dates yet for Upstart Crow.
