Premiere comedy forum cookdandbombd mentioned on stage tonight at the Barbican event for the new book. Apparently their editor was trying to make them change it to "twitter". "Only about 100 people would get it but cookdandbombd was funnier"

They were absolutely correct, they even brought attention to the way to do it in Bernie Clifton's Dressing Room - stating that specifics (Garibaldi) were more funny than generals (biscuits).

the specificity makes it funny. But also "I bet you're loving this on twitter, aren't you" has no cadence or anything. cookdandBOMBD forum. it's a good line

also when I search British stuff (like say, Jimmy Savile) this place comes up pretty soon. well ok maybe this place talks about Jimmy Savile too much. but regardless. it's not an insignificant site, there's nothing like it really.

Might be more to do with garibaldis cookies on your devices.

Twitter would have been a rubbish line but I'm trying to think how I'd have responded had it been a forum I've never heard of. I mean I'd probably google it but I'd also think I'd missed something, either a reference to it in the show or that it had some link to Inside No.9 that I didn't know about (which "Hi Reece!" and when he's mentioned CaB in interviews sort of are, but I'm still amazed that was enough to get into a line in an episode.) I'd probably read their reaction to the mention too just to see what it was all about.

Interview with Mark Gatiss in today's Observer:

... messing about in a pedalo on a boating lake with his old League of Gentlemen muckers Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith for a new series of their TV comedy Inside No 9

So, the 9 in question will be a paddle boat.  Obviously there's no details yet, but if it's a two/three hander on location in the middle of a lake, you wonder if this was like getting him back for their Rope homage in Psychoville. In the face of some very challenging filming restrictions, the easiest thing to do is get a co-star you've an established working relationship with.

It won't be as good as their previous work.

FUCK WALES, IS IT?!

Least if you went you wouldn't need a plane or a boat :-(

BritishHobo

True.

To be fair to them even if there was a Wales date I probably wouldn't go on account of I'm lazy and I've spent all my money on cakes.

icehaven

I might try and go to the Birmingham one, if it doesn't sell out before I get paid. Is it me or does this seem really short notice? The first date is less than 3 weeks after the tickets go on sale. Or is that Covid related somehow?

Steve said on twitter they only had a 2 week window of availability and so it was just a matter of finding venues that weren't booked.

Oh, so they only decided to do it very recently? Fair enough, it's just being so used (in normal times anyway) to gigs/shows etc. being planned and tickets available months if not a year in advance it seems extraordinarily short notice but OK. I suppose that's the advantage of there being a lot less planning needed for three blokes on a stage than for massive tours/entire bands etc.

JamesTC

Completely forgot about the tickets going on sale this morning. Thankfully wasn't sold out when I went on.

icehaven

Birmingham's selling fast so sod it, I've booked. Really looking forward to it actually, it's the first live comedy thing I've been to in aaages, even before Covid.

Malcy

I will not be watching the next series based on their venue choices. Dirty racists. Nah but seriously I think this will be a great gig. I hope they extend it elsewhere in the future. I narrowly missed meeting Reece at a BAFTA event a few years ago. I was too late on getting tickets to his thing but got tickets to others. No sign of him at the free bar afterwards (probably for the best due to me downing 3 bottles of wine in a very short space of time)!

JamesTC

Just got back from it. Was a great evening (though it seemed to go all too quickly).

Highlights of the evening were Reece suggesting that at least one person in the audience must have "a fritzl", Reece pretending he has "a Fritzl" all evening and Reece blurting out "the twist is she's fat" while somebody in the audience is describing an episode of Tales of the Unexpected.

Someone please ask Reece what his CaB username is.

Vroomo

I was very intrigued at Steve saying there'd been one guest star that Reece really didn't like.

Just finished watching series 4, 5 and 6 on DVD. Great stuff.
The Commedia dell'Arte one was particularly enjoyable; I enjoy madcap puns more than anything. Very clever.
'Zanzibar' from series 4, written in verse, was plainly brilliant. That's right up my alley.
'Last Night of the Proms' made me jealous. I tried to do summat like that in a play some years ago, but this Inside No 9 episode did it ten times better.

The only one that left me a bit cold was 'Love's Great Adventure' in series 5. Not sure what the message was there; neither did I care much for the characters.

Anyroad, keep up the good work, lads. I wish I could write like that.
