George W. Bush: Nice Guy to Have a Beer With, Not So Good as President; AKA Who's Responsible for Military Contractors in Iraq?

Here's the thing.  He seems like a nice guy.  Hell, I'd go have a beer with him.  Watch the game.  That kind of thing.  But good lord he shouldn't be President of the United States.

Via Digg.

More Goodness; Jennifer Warren in 'Sandy'

While at the Edinburgh Fringe had a most entertaining time hanging out with American Canadian comedian Jennifer Warren.  She was at the Fringe as part of the Naked Comedy Showcase, (yes, that's right - stand-up the nude).  I was originally skeptical of the idea but NCS organiser, (and nudist), Andy Ofiesh was so charming he convinced me to go to the show. 

Unfortunately I was unable to make it - but am glad that Jennifer has started to post on  Take a look and laugh.  I did.

More Goodness; 'Potted Potter' - Harry Potter Spoof / Parody

During the Edinburgh Fringe I was dragged, dragged I tells ya to the Harry Potter spoof 'Potted Potter' by one of our 'CCC' Producers who's a HUGE fan of the works of J.K. Rowling.

And I have to be honest here - no lie, I was dreading seeing a theatrical 'interactive' spoof for kids.  But you know what? 

The house lights dimmed.

The crowd hushed.

The performers bounded on stage and within minutes I...

...walked out.

Yeah, I gave it 5 minutes and that was enough for me.  Which was fortunate because as I was leaving I ran into William Crawley at the door, we exchanged numbers and ended up having a fine old time in Edinburgh, (for those of you who don't know, Crawley is, hands-down, the best broadcaster in Northern Ireland - I am sure a very visible career awaits him at the Beeb once he goes Network).

Anyway, wracked by guilt, (and the fact that the above mentioned Potter-mad producer had scheduled me to work with the creators of the show, Dan and Jeff, the next day!), I went back to the show.

And you know what?

It's great!

Oh sure it's mostly for kids, but adults will have a great time as well.  Guess I was just a bit grumpy the first time I went to see it.  Or something.

Anyway we shot 2 of the books for - the first book is presented above for your edification and enlightenment!

More Goodness; Susan McIntosh on What It Is To Be Scottish

I've finally recovered from the Edinburgh Fringe, but still have plenty of material to edit from the scouting expedition. 

The clip above is from that shoot, something I developed with Susan McIntosh, previously seen on LTA here:

Edinburgh Fringe Podcast Action! Part 11 - Already Dead

We tramped around the Royal Mile for a couple of hours and ended up shooting bucket loads of stuff.  The material gathered was not all comedy gold, but by goodness, we were able to tease some laughs out of the situation.

Richard Sandling - Winner of the 2007 'So You Think You're Funny' Awards - On Film Hooliganism

Richard Sandling
The smiling gentleman above is Richard Sandling; winner of this year's 'So You Think You're Funny?' competition.

As I was in town talent scouting for I of course attended the various heats and watched the finals with interest.  There was the usual observational stuff, everyone was polished, but Richard stood out for me with his hard-core/in-depth/must have gone over the heads of much of the audience film trivia material.

I approached him after the show and cajoled him to be on CCC, (as well as the Podcast). The clip below gives you a flavour of his act.

Edinburgh Fringe Podcast Action! Part 13 - Zoe Lyons Nominated for the IF Best Newcomer Award

Had the pleasure of working with Zoe Lyons a couple of months back for 'Project X' - great to hear she's just been nominated for the IF Best Newcomer Award at the Fringe this year!

The IF used to be the Perrier Awards, which are pretty damn prestigious Dear Reader.  All of us at LTA and CCC wish her good luck.  Presented below for your entertainment is Zoe's take on the recent  smoking ban in England.

P.S. Had a chance to see another of the nominees, Mickey Flanagan, at the Just for Laughs Showcase last night - if he's in your town go see him - a funny, funny guy).

Diebold Rebrands

So Diebold is changing their name to, I shit you not, 'Premier Election Solutions'.

Why not just re-brand as 'Honest McTrusty's Dependa Vote' if they're gonna go to the effort of ordering new stationary?

More Goodness; Revels Chortle Student Comedy Awards Winner Tom Deacon on Australian Hip-Hop

In ConstantComedy news here's the first vid I've done with Tom Deacon who's just won the 2007 Student Comedy Award here in the UK.  Though he's young and inexperienced he's definitely got a presence and tore up the room at the awards!


Fox Show 1/2 Hour News Hour Fails For All The Obvious Reasons

Yes, it has been cancelled.  The 1/2 Hour News Hour previously on LTA:

The America Show

After watching the embedded clip above I find no reason to go into detail about why the show was asked to cease production.  I find the whole thing has a creepy fascist, anti-life, anti-art vibe; I mean who the fuck doesn't like art? 

If you don't then email me and I'll take you around some galleries no matter what city I'm in at the time to explain to you the transformative nature of personal creativity.

These people just hate and hate. But who specifically do they hate? And why?
