Directed by Michael Winterbottom, Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon play “loose versions of themselves” as they travel around the Peak District, Lake District, Scotland, Lancashire, and the Yorkshire Dales writing food reviews for a national newspaper. Read more about it here.

Love it.

“Rise of the Idiots”, by Dan Ashcroft

Just popped out for lunch in Shoreditch. Reminded me of this. I think they’re now called “Hispters”.

Scene from the excellent “Nathan Barley” series in which Dan Ashcroft gives a commentary on the rise of the idiot classes. Many people think this rant is the exposition of co-creator Chris Morris’s own feelings on popular culture.

Comedian Doug Stanhope on the US News Media networks

I thought long and hard about posting these videos because I imagine quite a few people won’t like a) what Doug Stanhope has to say, and b) the way he says it.

His bio reads like a NSFW website warning: “Dougs material ranges from true-life graphic perversion to volatile social criticism. Doug is vulgar, opinionated, brutally honest and shockingly uninhibited and is certainly not for everybody.” But I think his observations are dead on.

The following are all from Season 2 of Charlie Brooker’s Newswipe.
