Now I’m not sure why on earth you’d stay in and watch tv when the 10days in Dublin festival is still going strong but if you do happen to be in need of a giggle from the comfort of your couch then you’re in luck because it’s not just Sky Atlantic who are bringing new comedy to the small screen! Comedy Central have 2new comedy series starting this week and I for one am pretty excited to see them both!
First up we have ‘How to be a Gentleman’ which starts tonight at 9pm. Inspired by the book of the same name ‘How to be a Gentleman’ is a brand new comedy about the unlikely friendship between a traditional, refined writer and a rough-around-the-edges personal trainer. It stars Andrew, (David Hornsby) the etiquette columnist whose devotion to ideas from a more civilised time has led to a life detached from modern society, and Bert (Kevin Dillon) the asshole from Andrew’s past who inherited a fitness centre and hasn’t grown up one bit. When Andrew’s editor Jerry (Dave Foley) tells him to make his column more modern and sexy or face a firing, he hires Bert as a life coach in the hope he’ll learn to be a little less ‘gentle man’ and more a ‘real man’. Add into the mix living comedy legend Rhys Darby (Flight of the Conchords), Diane Lenehan (Malcolm in the Middle) and Chloe from 24 (Mary Lynn Rajskub), and that’s ‘How to be a Gentleman’ in a nutshell. Sounds like a character combination that’s bound to result in hilarity, but you’ll just have to watch it yourself to see if succeeds where so many sitcoms fail and makes you laugh out loud!
