I can't believe it has been a year and a half since my last Daily Show COTW.

The writers' strike of... 2008(?) hit my Daily Show viewing hard. I watched it four times a week. And, as such a regularly-made programme, it was affected by the strike quickly. As the strike went on, I slowly got used to not watching it. I'm sickened as I think back on those dark days.

Anyway, the strike ended and I was used to not watching it! I am only now on a mission to get back into the swing of things. It doesn't help that Virgin Media got rid of the 'More 4+1' channel. I don't think it's even available on demand. It's obviously on the Comedy Central website, but that's not quite the same.

Nevertheless, I am on a mission to get back into watching this amusing and informative show. To help myself back to work, as it were, I am resurrecting the too-ephemeral Daily Show Clip of the Week; it's not in its magnificent third instalment. I was planning on bringing it back a few weeks ago. I've had such a hard time blogging of late, as if you hadn't noticed. I was planning on doing ten posts a month. I was rushing to get it done in March, and failed to pull the trigger on two posts. They're still not finished: they would have been pretty bloody timely if I'd done them there and then. I had a week and two days off work! I do believe this is the pathetic second post of the month. What have I become?

So here is the Daily Show in Sweden. It's really funny or something. Excuse me, I have something in my eye...

Seeing as I was linked as something of an online Morris news avenue when rumours of his latest projects started, I thought I'd post this item of delight. From the relevant FaceBook group:

Subject: FUNDED


Due to this week’s final confirmation on our funding, your chance to be in the film has just become more real... no specifics yet but it might be worth getting yourself physically fit over the summer. We may need you to do some running on camera this autumn (to cut into our shots from the london marathon last year).

This last word on our financing means we can move from faith to reality and actually start putting together a full team over the next few months. Rewrites continue. There have been meetings about posters(this seems to be far more important than actually getting the film cast, written and shot). Location planning reports are good - we are currently focused on the Alps for Pakistan.

More news when the work kicks in. Meanwhile go and see In The Loop. Chris has been banging on about it since xmas & says it is "very funny" and had him laughing "in three different registers".


'DS' apparently being Deidre Steed. Good news indeed - can't wait to see some new Morris, and glad some proper satire is on its way. Quite fancy seeing 'In the Loop', even though Iannucci is currently in my bad books. 'Skin Deep', his alleged 'opera', was so feeble and joke-deprived that - even now - I have been unable to finish writing my piece on it. And I was at the world premiere!

One day...
