Tim Clark13 June 2012
Today's update includes BBC Three's comedy rollout, Evesham Comedy Festival, Mick Perrin's flippin secrets and student crushes on Russell Howard
- Here's a new BBC Three comedy that is notable either because it stars Greg Davies (Comedy.co.uk), Andy Samburg (Hollywood Reporter) or is being made by ex-The Office exec Ash Atalla (Broadcast). Either way: the new BBC Three comedy rollout continues apace...
- (COINCIDENTALLY can you believe we live in an age where Helen Baxendale is playing the mother to late-teenage girls?)
- Continuing to carve out his niche as 'man who doesn't do much but make grand pronouncements about things every once in a while' – perhaps the recent Jubilee spirit is making him angle for Prince Charles' job – Stephen Fry is calling on the British Museum to send the Elgin Marbles back to Greece. SSP
- No need to wank in the stationery cupboard in shame: do it in the corridor with pride! (Russell Howard is a popular student crush, is the relevant news story.) MTV
- The bloke behind lots of the Mighty Boosh's 'look' has a new exhibition which has been excellently covered over here, as one would expect. The Velvet Onion
- The award-winning John Finnemore's Souvenir Programme is back and tickets are available here. BBC Tickets
- Festivals! Comedy! Evesham has one now, populated by your favourite funny sonograms like Tom Deacon and Matt Richardson. Evesham Observer
- Read a bit about Mick Perrin's business secrets in a strange flipbook magazine over here, starting on page 14. Business First
