When you appear on a television show, you can go in many directions: Instant fame and Hollywood, constantly appearing on the same show, or appearing on reality TV before absconding into obscurity. British TV seems to be worse – it’s really, really hard to break the chains of a famed character and you, usually, end up playing the same role repeatedly.
So James Buckley, who played the foul-mouthed Jay in popular show The Inbetweeners hopes to escape the character confine’s with his latest film The Comedian’s Guide to Survival.
The film revolves around failed comedian James Mulligan (based on Buckley’s experiences,) who has come across a crossroads in his life. Stuck between the demands of his wife and his day job and his love of comedy, his boss tells him “Stick to your day job, or lose it!” Which is exactly when an opportunities arrives to interview the best comedians, his faint slither of passion strikes up again!
If you are a big fan of British humour, then you’ll be pleased with this upcoming film. What do you
THE COMEDIAN’S GUIDE TO SURVIVAL IS OUT 28th OCTOBER!
