Here’s ex-Blue Peter presenter, Simon Groom, destroying an Elvis classic. Stick around for the weirdly rehearsed chat afterwards. Just skip to 01:02.

A Blue Peter badge to Chuck Thomas for this horror.

Well, this bloke is just great. His name’s Peter Parsons, and well, I really don’t know what else to say…

And while you’re here, you might like this one too.

Thanks to Tom

I’ve expressed my love for the amazing Ross Lee on this site many a time. And here’s another reason why my love just increases.

If you still haven’t heard the funniest prank album ever (by Sir Ross) just do it now.

Thanks to Greg Scott for sending me this.

The suspense music from 1:20 onwards kills me.

Friday Night Dinner Series 4 is coming…

Jim covered in blood.

I’ve known for many months, but now it can be officially announced. It’s happening, folks!

First off, apologies to all of you lovely people who asked on twitter, ‘Is there going to be a 4th series?’ only to have no reply from me. I wasn’t being rude, I was just not allowed to say until ‘the announcement’.

Anyway, I’m so excited to be writing again for my incredible cast, and to be working with my lovely director, Martin Dennis. And, I know, 2016 is a long way off to wait – a mixture of the cast being so busy on other shows, because they’re so good, and me having had some other writing commitments. So apologies again, but hope you’ll all tune in for more japes next year.

Thanks again for all your support and kind words. Robert :)

As a massive fan of Eddie Murphy’s Coming to America, I just love this 80’s ad for a local hair salon. And that guy is seriously sweaty…

Thanks to @secretgrooves. Great find!

Ross Lee: Dick Dastard Strikes Again

by Robert Popper on March 23, 2015 · 1 comment

I am beyond excitement: Between 2001-2003, Ross Lee–armed with a hidden mic–pounded the streets/shops/taxis of Leeds, Manchester and Sheffield and caused comedy havoc. I’ve been listening to these recordings ever since (I basically know them word for word), and now Ross and I have put all the best stunts onto one album.

I have been a huge fan of Ross Lee for many years. I think he’s one of the funniest people on the planet. You may know him from various TV things, including his role as Slimmer of the Year in Look Around You (the one with the Scary Picture). He’s a complete one-off – comedian, artist (he did the cover art), songwriter, and all round sillyman.

So, I do hope you enjoy this album and spread the Ross Lee word…
