Another channel joins in Sky's comedy empire...
- In 'sort of file it under Sky comedy expansion news', Mount Pleasant will move to ladychannel Sky Living for its second season. iMediaMonkey
- Daniel Tosh has apologised for a rape joke (Chortle). Let's read something very sensible Rob Delaney wrote about this on Reddit once, seeing as he yesterday added an extra date at the Bloomsbury Theatre. It didn't sell out in an hour this time.
- Danny La Rue's life is going to be made into a movie, which makes sense, given that BBC Four have pulled the plug on most of their comedy and drama ambitions. BBC News
- Andy Murray was in the audience for Mock The Week. Is this not the best-looking TV audience you've ever seen? Think about the opening shots to the average episode of the Graham Norton Show. Now look at this. 'Blimey'. Facebook
- In preposterous news, if you don't fancy any of the many comedy festivals in the UK this weekend, there'll be an internet cat video festival in LA. Paging Drennon Davis... LA Times
