Lauren Rutherford to star alongside “Hollywood’s Queen” in hit new Comedy show – Students


Hailed as the next Inbetweeners, this bold new comedy showcases the trials and tribulations of University life. Filmed in North London, the show has all the ingredients to become a phenomenal success.

Nouveau Media United Kingdom, is to produce the series which is aimed at Netflix audiences in all territories. “Gripping, funny and addictive viewing” says, Peter Wilson CEO of NMUK. “The talent we are working with is some of the best I have witnessed. We have numerous surprises in store for our viewers and that’s all I can say”.

Life is a journey of twists and turns. Good times and bad times. Happy and sad times. But life is always a forward movement. And it all starts at Knob Haven University (KHU) for these five students, each one between 18 – 22 years old who live in London. All are flying the nest to face university head-on, while resisting the impulse to turn back to their parents.

We follow them in their personal and educational lives as they pick up valuable lessons that will prepare them for their future . . . life lessons on being a nobody, coping with workload, student loans, procrastination, all linked to stress and anxiety.

“This show is not a users guide on “Tips for Dealing With the Pressures of University” but rather to explore the common misconceptions people tend to have about university” reveals the shows Executive Producer, Alexander Saunders.

Anticipated Release Date: February 2021 Worldwide

Contagious Covid Comedy – PR Fire


https://www.prfire.com/

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (June 26, 2020) – KeithFromUpDaBlock’s new comedy album The Covid Theory is an audio visual diary of paranoia, social distancing & activism through a comedic lens. Parodies of Prince, Bill Withers, Dr. Dre, Eminem, MC Hammer, Men With Hats, Lil Nas X & A Tribe Called Quest provide an eclectic blend of funky, soulful, thought provoking, funny jams written, produced & mixed by Keith himself while in isolation due to the Corona Virus Global Pandemic. Keith says “I wanted the album to sound old, tangible, frequently played & classic . I had to make this album because it was the only thing that kept me sane.”

Everything about “The Covid Theory” is executed for levity & insight during this particularly stressful moment in history. On track #4 titled “Forgot About A.I.D.S” he transforms Dr. Dre & Eminem’s Hip Hop masterpiece “Forgot About Dre” into commentary about Police brutality, The Tuskegee Experiment, Racism, Homophobia & parallels between the Covid-19 Global Pandemic of today & The A.I.D.S Epidemic of the 80’s & 90’s. On track #1 titled “Can’t Touch That” he sets his sights on M.C. Hammer’s smash hit “Can’t Touch This” & breaks down the various things you shouldn’t touch & one thing you should touch – The $1200 Stimulus Check. As intelligent as his perspective is, it is also masterful by capturing the original songs cadence & rhyme schemes while interjecting facts & funny punchlines.

This is KeithFromUpDaBlock’s 9th studio album & possibly his best work to date. He is a Philadelphia born Creative & Performing Artist, Producer, Comedian & Arts Educator whose credits include opening for Jay-Z, Kevin Hart, J.B Smoove, Deon Cole, Hosting the popular Philly Music Video Show Urban X-Pressions, Racking up millions of views on Youtube, Vlad TV & Worldstar Hip Hop, Dancing for The Philadelphia 76er’s NBA team, Founding Philadelphia Comedy College along with appearing on The Dr. Phil Show, MTV’s Ridiculousness, VH1 ‘s Undateable, Mindhunter on Netflix & performing a piece he wrote alongside Triumph The Insult Comic Dog on HULU. In January of 2021 he will appear as Frederick Douglas in CNN’s “Lincoln: An American President”

Good Moaning France! Officer Crabtree’s Fronch Phrose Berk

*Publication 24 October 2018 in paperback & ebook

9781909976597

Based on a favourite character from BBC TV sitcom ‘Allo ‘Allo! In this delightful book, Officer Crabtree’s masterly grasp of Fronch falls under the spotlight as never before.

From ‘Ploose may I hov a kippy of the dooly nosepooper?’ to ‘frigs logs’, ‘scrimbled oggs’ and ‘fosh and chops’ the book is a tribute to mangled words and phrases. Arthur Bostrom, who played Officer Crabtree on stage and screen, mixes vowels and pronunciation trying to educate those less gifted in the French longwodge.

Criss chunnel fairy.
Which bonk do you bonk with?
Would you lick a drunk?

Illustrated by John Cooper and ideal for travellers and fans of ‘Allo ‘Allo! alike, Good Moaning France! is a wake-up call for anyone who thinks they are competent in French (or English or any other language). Readers’ questions are answered in Ask Crabtree, there are examples from Crabtree’s poloce newtberks and a most unhelpful Undex. In a Foreword music legend Rick Wakeman recalls how he fell off his chair laughing on seeing the character created by screenwriters David Croft and Jeremy Lloyd at the start of the second series(the book is published by permission).

Reviews
‘Listen very carefully, you will read this more than once. I loaved it’― Les Dennis.

‘Buck your fairy trip to Fronce now and take Crabtree’s guide with you. A must-read. Hilarious’― Su Pollard.

‘DO NOT BUY ZIS BOOK!!! IF YOU DO, YOU VILL BE SHOT!!!’— Helga (Kim Hartman).
