If you like dead pan comedy > September 26, 2007Posted by grhomeboy in Entertainment.
One of our regular readers, Jonathan from Britain, has sent us a short press release, which we are please to reprint below. Take a note of it please >
If you like dead pan comedy > Dan Fielding “Domestic God” is right up your street.
Dan fancies himself as the next Jamie Oliver, spliced with Domestic Goddess Nigella Lawson. His mission in life is to help 20- something guys take control of their chaotic home lives (and make himself rich and famous in the process). In his quest to be talent spotted by a TV producer, Dan has a MySpace page dedicated to his amazing domestic skills and his glamorous lifestyle. He has also created a series of clips which are basically tasters of a TV show “Domestic God” which Dan would like to make and star in.
You’ll laugh at Dan’s complete and utter arrogance, fame seeking and wannbe attitude – he could even teach a Z list celeb a lesson or two! Some people are so passionate that he is the most annoying thing to grace My Space that they have created another My Space page devoting to sending Dan up. All this “hate” activity is topped off with a disgruntled, unpaid editor who is currently uploading some rather embarrassing out-takes on You Tube.
Dan is clearly a complete product of the “I wanna be famous (and will do anything for it)” mentality, but he is also part of a riddle backed by a rather large brand…but can you guess who it is?

Madcap one-man show September 20, 2007Posted by grhomeboy in Entertainment, The Royals.
Avalon Productions presents Jim Tavare at the Guildhall Arts Centre in Grantham on Friday, September 28, at 7.30pm.
This brilliant comic blends witty jokes with deadpan delivery and more bizarrely, a double bass, in this madcap one-man show. Hugely successful as a live performer, Jim has built up a loyal fan base across the country with his special brand of humour, including some blue blooded ones.
After several appearances at the Royal Variety Performance, Prince Charles invited Jim to perform at a private party at Highgrove before the Queen and 13 heads of state for the King of Greece’s birthday, so if you fancy seeing Jim perform you’re certainly in good company. Hailed by the Independent as “the natural heir to the Tommy Cooper Fez”, you’d be mad to miss him!
Tickets cost £12 each (concessions £10) and are available from the box office on telephone number 01476 406158.
Artistic mud wrestling May 1, 2007Posted by grhomeboy in Entertainment.
Mud wrestling and art aren’t commonly associated. The Come Out festival, however, this year is bringing them together, in a way that only an Adelaide festival can.
Performed by South Australian theatre company Chopt Logic, The Most Massive Woman Wins tells the story of four very different women battling body-image issues. So, what better way to combat them than wrestle in mud?
“If we all honestly couldn’t care less about how we look, the streets would be a glorious riot of colour, texture and shape,” director Jenn Havelberg says. Funnily enough, we think she’s referring to the dirty side of beauty. . . right?
Artistic director of the festival, Sally Chance, says “it’s a thought-provoking, funny and touching piece of physical theatre”. We bet there’s some guys who wouldn’t mind getting in on the action.
Three of the stars of The Most Massive Woman Wins, Catherine Campbell, Tina Mitchell and Lisa Lanzi, entertained guests at the program highlights launch of the festival at the Art Space yesterday. Thankfully, everyone came away squeaky clean.

Is Jesse set to bare all? April 22, 2007Posted by grhomeboy in Entertainment.
Former Desperate Housewives star, Jesse Metcalfe, may have to strip off to bag his next role. The actor is rumoured to be replacing Daniel Radcliffe when his run in Peter Shaffer’s play, Equus, ends.
The star is expected to take on the role of a young man who has an erotic fixation with horses, in a play that has received rave reviews from many critics.
The move comes after Jesse recently checked himself into a rehab centre for alcohol abuse last month. News of Metcalfe’s rehab stint came after a report that he had indulged in four days of partying in Hollywood. He is currently dating Girls Aloud singer Nadine Coyle.
