Russell Brand: In Plain Sight [renamed]

Channel 4 have scheduled a 90 min long Dispatches special with no announced subject yet for Saturday night. Rumour mill's been turning a bit about this over the past day or so.

Could be related to a "big story" that the Sunday Times are also supposedly dropping, could be an apparent exposé of many prominent late 80s/90s/00s comedy types for Me Too-adjacent sleaze and other wrongness.

Or it could just be an overdue final death knell for Dan Wootton by the mainstream. Who knows?

Rumours flying around that the top-secret Channel 4 Dispatches airing tomorrow night is 'mass expose of an obscene amount of high profile comedians' who have 'incredibly shocking accusations held against them, including footage that's been collected over the last 3 years'

How long did it take GL to write the book again...?

Only joking, presumably if this is what it is, it's D**** W*******, maybe more on Hardeep Singh Kholi and others?

Will be very surprised if R****** B**** is not included in this

Shame, I loved The Good Life.

I was hoping to get some goss from here...

No idea who the big name is in Channel 4's little Dispatchy-watchy doc

Don't know what this is, to be honest.

Or D**** B******. No one likes him.

Hang on, which comedians other than the anti-woke nutjobs (and Tom Binns) have been cancelled in the last 3-years? Am I forgetting something?

There's been loads of rumours about RB, DW and JC but none of them are 'cancelled'.

George White

A certain gliding enthusiast?
A certain ex-celibate atheist?

Toby Young is getting his little pinger excited because the Sunday Times are about to break some scandal.

Can't imagine it's related to this though.

Please please please don't let our man be involved. He wouldn't be would he, but imagine how many people would absolutely fucking love it.

About time the boz-boz was EXXXPOSED

DW lost a high profile and high paying job, that's more consequence than most cancellation cases.

Aha, I didn't know that. Well, in that case, he's very likely to be one of the subjects.

There are a few lesser known comedians that I can't imagine would be the subject of a major C4 doc, and for whom any publicity would simply constitute a legge up.

Could this be why the most recent series of 8 out of 10 Cats does Countdown consisted of one new episode and then two clip shows?

I want no part in this salacious tabloid television spectacle!

Just received word Stewart Lee has 6 mill laundered in an offshore business account

QuoteIt WAS pretty baffling that Russell Brand went from staunchly socialist democrat for decades and then WOMP far-right conspiracy just asking questions bilge but I guess the decision will all make perfect sense soon enough.

Oooof!

You should should have smelled Emu's beak back in the seventies!

Oooof!

I've been saying this for ages! The far right wingnut vlogosphere he's pivoted to over the last few years is the perfect escape pod for when his Metoo number comes up. Smart lad, I guess :(

If I ever find out that a comedian or musician I like has taken drugs...

How much money could you possibly launder through films like the Parole Officer and Cemetery Junction
