Tim Vine heads to ITV, the Inbetweeners writers head to Hollywood and more: the last 24 hours in comedy
Andrew Mickel4 July 2012
ITV's interest in comedy seems to be bringing up some interesting projects...
- Tim Vine has a new family quiz show on ITV1 called Don’t Blow The Inheritance, examining the intergenerational tensions caused by baby boomers retiring early while their unemployed offspring suffer in the fundamentally flawed economy of Britain in 2012 (tbc). British Comedy Guide
If that isn’t time for some Whittle, I don’t know what is:
- The Inbetweeners’ writers are going to Hollywood to do something like the Inbetweeners in an American movie. Den of Geek
- Lucy Lumsden reckons there's room for even more comedy on Sky, with Sky Living named as a channel where there could be ‘more fun with female leads’, which sounds like something that should be happening on much dirtier channels on Sky. Hollywood Reporter
- Eddie Izzard a effectué la première fois en langue française concert par un Anglais en Amérique ce week-end. (S'il ya un problème avec la traduction, le blâme Google Translate.) Le Chortle
- And if you want an incisive read into the Twitter joke trial that lots of comedians are getting involved with, you’ll be wanting this IT World report.
