Are you having one of those miserable Sundays where your regretting the night before and are struggling to raise a smile? Are you a fan of Curb Your Enthusiasm and Larry David?
Then, how about an old photo of Larry David with hair – really curly, silly hair. That’ll put a smile on your face, surely:
Here’s the trailer for Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen‘s latest comedy, This Is The End.
The film’s stars (James Franco, Paul Rudd, Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill, Michael Cera and loads more) all play their celebrity selves and the basic ‘one line’ plot is as follows – “While attending a party at James Franco’s house in Los Angeles, Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel and many other celebrities are faced with the apocalypse.”
The pair’s last few films, The Watch, Pineapple Express and Superbad have helped redefine modern US comedy cinema. Whether success will continue to follow the pair is open to debate. The Godfather of modern US comedy cinema, Judd Apatow‘s last film, This Is 40 got a critical mauling in the most part, and Rogen‘s been in a fair few flops too.
The trailer below looks pretty good though, and the cast is a role call of current US comedy stars (it only seems to be missing Will Ferrell and Steve Carell):
This Is The End is released in US cinemas on 12th June, and in UK cinemas just over a fortnight later on the 28th.
Here’s a funny for the weekend – spotted on a train somewhere – and pinned on Pinterest by Jamie AFRO…
I’m a big fan of absurdist oddballs, Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim. Their surrealistic and satirical show, Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! warped comedy from the bowels of US public-access television and low budget-commercials, and ran for five seasons between 2007 and 2010.
In the US the show aired on the Cartoon Network‘s Adult Swim comedy block – but it’s not an easy one to find on UK TV. I initially stumbled across it early last year on TCM – but had to track down the majority of episodes online (mild grumble over).
Anyway, Tim & Eric have recently debuted a new ‘reality show’ online. Over the past week the pair have uploaded six five minutes episodes of, Tim & Eric’s Go Pro Show.
After being sent a pair of Go Pro head-mounted cameras the pair decide to document their everyday lives – and that’s the show in a nutshell. It’s very daft and fans who haven’t seen it yet, will no doubt love it.
If you haven’t seen it yet, here are all six episodes to watch in full:

Here’s a new tune/video from Seattle-based comedian and musician, Reggie Watts – lots of swearing – enjoy:
Ricky Gervais‘ David Brent returned to our screens last night in an exclusive 10 minute ‘sketch’ as part of Comic Relief.
Brent is still on the road as a rep selling cleaning products, but his interest in music remains strong and he’s now managing a ‘hip hop’ act. He’s even paid for studio time and a debut video – as long as it involves him of course.
The sketch was as funny and cringeworthy as the premise suggests and the resulting music video, Equality Street (by Brent and Johnson) is an absolute treat. If you laughed at Brent‘s ‘If You Don’t Know Me By Now‘ music video, get ready to guffaw some more:
