They Came, They Saw, They Conquered

Here is my interview feature with the two guys (James Wan and Leigh Whannell) who created the first Saw movie and which has since become a torture porn phenomenon that has grossed nearly $900,000,000 dollars. That is insane, but as the lads said the studio money men just sit their counting the profits waiting for more unwilling victims to become part of Jigsaw's plans. I met the lads in the U2 Clarence Hotel and they were beaming smiles on legs...their new movie called Insidious is out today and cost only $800,000. It has already grossed over $35m at the US Box Office. Unreal. No wonder they're all smiles.

Just click on the pic:

"Whatever you do, DON'T shout cut!"

And, Insidious isn't the only horror being inflicted on us today...Will (you marry me) and Waif celebrate their nuptials across the water...If two Jack Russells were getting married I would happily wish them the world of good especially if i was getting the day off! Good luck to them they seem pretty down to earth...well for people who have Granny's in Palaces I suppose. And because I have been caught up in the romance of it all, here is a wonderful clip of Wills and Kate talking about how they first eyes are welling up just thinking about it...awwwwww

Sometimes these flash mob adverts get on my tatties, but this is actually very funny. Prince Harry posted this video on his Facebook page saying, "this is what it's really going to be like!" His lookalike in the video is brilliant....and Camilla Parker Bulldogs is pretty good. Dancing up the aisle to "House of Love" by East 17 is a lot more palatable than domestic violence specialist Chris Brown...those chino wearing bell-ends in that other famous Youtube monster hit melted my head.

Things I learned this week...

Pigs can have unfeasibly large bollocks. Lord help us, but how does this fella sit down...although they probably pop up in front of him like a footstool :-/

John Sullivan R.I.P.

Very sad to hear the news over the weekend of the death of a comedy legend. He is the man who gave us one of the greatest comedy characters Del Boy Trotter. A character up there with Homer Simpson as far as I'm concerned and nearly as influential especially on a wee big toothed, side parting, nobbly knee'd, short pants wearing wee man like myself. Every Friday or Saturday I loved to sit and watch Only Fools and Horses, and catch the "Rodney, you plonker!", "Mange tout" "ruby murray" "Dave" and any number of legendary catchphrases that Sullivan engraved in comedy lore in between trying to hear the jokes because my Mum and Dad would be wailing in laughter. There was a cracking piece in the Mail about the genuine pleasure of Sullivan's took the piss but was never snide.

He also gave birth to a very special little three day Rodders, we'll be millionaires!

One of my favourite scenes was the chandelier. As many of his stories came from his Dad, a plumber in London, this is supposed to have happened. All of the best comedy comes from truth and one of the reasons why OFAH was s o successful is because of the believable characters.

And this wasn't far behind...

Although in this situation I hope that I will be able to make clips until me hair tis greay and my bowels run astray. Here's a clip of a brand spanking new addition to called I-ON (as in "eye on" geddit? very clever, ye see all those years at Uni paid off!) that is a video magazine hosted by yours truly and featuring a ton of comedy, music, movie, exhibitions and events and the punters who attend. It will be a great craic and obviously the most important people are yourselves, so if we stop you for a chat say hello! Gonna start in the Capital and then work our way around the country.

This one is all about Fast & The Furious 5 - Rio Heist. I went along to the premiere party to speak to the fans of the monster motor movie.

WARNING: This clip features gratuitous boobs, (Georgia Salpa and hot blonde) even more gratuitous attempts at comedy, loads of fans, clips from the movie, and to top it all...a fantastic Gardai outtake....stay to the's gas! Wooooop Woooop!

So, please give this video some love on youtube and pass it on if you can :-)

Fankooooo xx
