It’s time to get excited Mitchell and Webb fans because the El Dude Brothers are here again…
We don’t know which Wednesday Channel 4 are referring to so keep your eyes peeled for this trailer across their networks…
I will try and embed a video of the trailer as soon as possible, for now here is a link to the trailer on the Radio Times website.
Here’s the full line up for the new series of Would I Lie To You? which will likely be on TV in the coming months, but there’s no date yet.
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:
Robert Webb’s new teenage memoir is released on the 29th August and you can go and see him talk about it live! Tour dates are in the link below:
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:
Last 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 have just been released for The Unbelievable Truth. The dates are the 12th, 14th and 26th of September, and are available here at Lost In Tv:
When we have the details of the guests we will list them here.
Tickets for David’s brand new panel show pilot – ‘Bring It On’ are also available as are some WILTY? dates via SRO Audiences:
Experience all David’s WILTY? rants in this epic compilation! Tickets are still available for the next series here: http://www.sroaudiences.com/
A 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.
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.
David will host a new audience participation pilot show called ‘Bring It On’. Described as Mock the Week meets Antique’s Roadshow every audience member is encouraged to bring along a quirky possession with an interesting story behind it. Below is a link to the full story on The British Comedy Guide although we don’t know yet which channel this pilot is being made for or indeed if it is for TV or Radio.:
Tickets are available here so get your thinking caps on as to what you might want to showcase:
After the success of Thursday’s Alternative Election Night talk amongst David Mitchell fans has signalled that we are really missing a wry, witty and informed take on the current bizarre – and ripe for satire, political landscape. We feel a David Mitchell and Jeremy Paxman lead weekly news show may be the only solution to help us make sense of it all. After the marathon broadcast I found myself thinking: ‘I wonder what David and Jeremy would be saying about all of this now?’
After 10 0’clock Live came to an end C4’s only satire comes from The Last Leg, unquestionably a great show, but also primarily a chat show. There is a gap in the market for a full on political analysis show for Channel 4. That’s why I want us to try and make this happen!
We can do this by tweeting C4’s @4viewers twitter feed telling them what we want which is roughly this:
@4viewers After the Election Night I’d love David Mitchell and Jeremy Paxman to host some sort of weekly political show!
