|Corden vs Debelle in the Weekly Triva File
|Peter Kay was approached by an old lady while shopping at Morrisons in Bolton last week, who asked him: ‘Can I have your autograph, Vernon?’
A strange night out even by Russell Brand’s standards: The comic went to the launch of ‘decadent fetish club’ Porn Dwarf in East London this week, featuring dwarf pole-dancers and midget bouncers.
James Corden had a bit of a touchy incident with Speech Debelle at the launch of the Take That Singstar game on Wednesday. After the rapper was roundly booed for her ear-abusing rendition of Pray, Corden said: ‘I’d like to defend her – but that was shit!’ One of her entourage told him: ‘She’s a rapper not a singer, you know’, and Debelle stormed: ‘Listen, I don’t do that Take Shit stuff.’ Corden then raised the obvious question of what the hell she was doing a Take That launch in the first place, telling her: ‘Maybe you should leave, because we all do.’ After Debelle left the stage, Corden said: ‘She’s proper angry… we can all rap’ – and launched into his own freestyle. Nicely handled, Mr C. Watch it all unfold [url= http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oIqHE-_qORU]here[/url].
David Cameron’s personal photographer is called Andy Parsons.
Meanwhile, the stand-up of the same name has been commenting on I’m A Celebrity star Katie Price. He said: ‘You can now get ironing-board covers with a Jordan on that when it gets hot she loses the clothes. I suppose it’s one way to get teenage boys to do ironing. Although you'd think it’d be pretty dangerous holding an iron in one hand, and your teenage cock in the other.’
Robin Williams only found out that the ABC network had axed Mork And Mindy in 1982 when he read about it in the Hollywood trade press. ‘I found out the show was cancelled by reading it in Variety,’ he recalls. ‘In Hollywood that's like reading your own obituary, “You’re dead, good luck!”’
YouTube clip of the week: Some American kids pretend to be doing a stand-up gig in the Nineties. Strange
It seems Chortle’s comedy geekiness failed us in a review of Michael McIntyre’s DVD recording at Wembley last month. Our review mentioned a bit he did about ringing a missing mobile to locate it… but missed the fact that Ed Byrne used to perform a similar routine. And we would like to thank a Mr E Byrne of London for pointing that out…
Is this the first time The Sun has given coverage to the launch of an independently published book of avant-garde poetry? Read all about Edinburgh Comedy Award winner Tim Key’s event here.
Perks of being a comedian No 1: Stand-up Bennett Arron has been given a free subscription to pensioners’ newspaper Mature Times, after mentioning its dating column in his set.
Perks of being a comedian No 2: Alan Carr got a £1 discount when he brought a fake dog turd in Blackpool – because the joke shop owner was a fan.
