Always Back The Writer

Idiot Comedy Actor A heckles, then throws a succession of increasingly heavy and dangerous stuff at Comedy Writer B, who is accepting an award, culminating in quite a cool moment at 1:14.



Okay, I know it's not that dramatic or anything, but for a writer, that's pretty amazing, taking into account the standard writerly lack of physical coordination alone.

Is KB as much of a tosspot as he appears, I wonder? Wasn't it him heckling during the Ricky Gervais acceptance video as well?

As for Iain Morris, I loved the Sunday morning XFM show he did with Jimmy Carr...

Apparently that James Cordon was doing his equal share of the heckling.

I feel a bit out of comedy these days, I dont think I've seen a single show that was nominated.

Also, heee, hadn't got as far as the Katy Brand bit, very good.

Excuse my language but what a complete and utter twat (I was going for the "c" word but veered off at the last minute). Hooray for Katy Brand. And I do hope Kevin Bishop ends up doing panto in Wigan.

Boz said...

Well he's already doing those bank adverts, right?

Wasn't he in Grange Hill? IMDB says yes.

It also says he's younger than me. Aha.

Jayne said...

Yeah but you get a load of cash for a tv advert. I am finding comfort thinking of him in Wigan. In a B&B. With nylon sheets. And being paid 3/6 per week for 12 performances a week. Don't destroy my dreams...

Hehe...

Who, of you lot, have been to these awardy things? Are they as embarrassing as they look on TV, or is it different when you're actually in the room surrounded by all the weird 80s gameshow smuggery?

james henry said...

Fay and Ori have been to their fair share of this kind of nonsense. I'd rather hide at home in a wicker basket (which doesn't mean I don't practice my acceptance speech every time I start a new project).

Newf said...

D'you think you'd feel obliged to go if one of your solo projects was nominated? I always reckon that's the only reason why wicker basket writers would turn up to an awardy thing! I mean, Chris Morris has picked up an award in person... he's the diety of wicker basket writers...

He could be in my cricket team.

Although he might stand out somewhat, given standard writerly lack of physical coordination.

Beautiful. Wonderfully styled out. I hope his mum was taping it.

I suppose so, but they always look like such hellish events to have to sit through, the comedy ones in particular. Also, it's a long way to go from Cornwall, just to have to wear an uncomfortable tie.
