Veep

God, I love Veep and I have a bit of a thing for Julia Louis-Dreyfus. She’s awesome – watch Veep for proof!

Is it me, or is American politics just cooler than UK politics?! I can’t imagine Maggie Thatcher, Neil Kinnock or Gordon Brown aping themselves like this.

The Comeback to make a comeback

Great news! Valerie Cherish is set to make a comeback after HBO announced that it was to go into production for the show’s 10 year anniversary.

The Comeback stars Lisa Kudrow as Valerie Cherish, an actress trying to get back into showbiz. It is a mockumentary format with a great supporting cast and Kudrow’s spot-on comedy timing. Some of it is hard to watch as Valerie gets knocked back time and time again, but at the same time it is hilarious.

The original series only ran for 13 episodes and HBO have only committed to a further six for now, but still it’s great to know it coming back. Season 1 is available to watch on YouTube. If you’re not hooked by episode 1, stick with it, because it gets really good and you grow to really love Valerie.

One Second A Day For A Year

Saturday Night Live cast member, Brooks Wheelan, films one second a day for a year and the result is a video that is actually quite inspiring.

I’m a fan of the US TV show Parks and Recreation and am particularly fond of the character Ron Swanson. Ron is a man’s man; he likes the great outdoors, survival and making stuff with his bare hands. He dislikes bureaucracy, vegetarians and health & safety. He really is a fantastic character and so I am overjoyed to find out that Nick Offerman, the actor who plays him, is pretty similar to his character in real-life.

Click here and check out Nick Offerman’s Woodshop where you’ll find all manner of handmade wood items, designed and made by Nick and his colleagues.

I also found out that Nick is married to Megan Mullally, Karen from Will & Grace, which makes me like him even more! I bet there’s no *ahem* wooden comedy in their household. Sorry!
