Monsters Of Cock

The Weekly Triva File

  • James Corden describes his upcoming flick Lesbian Vampire Killers as 'Shaun Of The Dead with tits'.

  • After Andrew Sachs's daughter, Russell Brand has claimed an even more famous descendant as the latest notch on his bedpost: Che Guevara's granddaughter Lydia. Meanwhile, Brand has also revealed who he would next like to work with. ‘I'm very keen to meet the actress Gianna Michaels,' he said. 'I would be very interested in working with her in any capacity. She's a very gifted woman.' Ms Michael's previous films include Jizz Jugglers, Blowjob Ninjas, Bubble Butt Bonanza and Monsters of Cock.
    • Ed Byrne studied horticulture at Strathclyde University.
      • Great question from a BBC entertainment reporter to Eddie Izzard: ‘You famously played one of those angry stand-ups, Lenny Bruce, in The Death Of Joe Egg...’ Um, no, that would be the play Lenny you’re thinking of, there’s a clue there somewhere..
        • Stephen K Amos is advertising his 2009 with the quote: 'Five star smash': Chortle. Only problem is we actually gave him four stars, and noted: 'If only there was a bit more substance where that banter was, [the show] would make that quantum leap to five-star smash.' Cheeky bastard.
          • Bad stand-up isn’t confined to clubs. Take a look at this clip from the horror movie Hack-O’Lantern, when for some reason star Bill Tucker launches into a stand-up routine. Horror indeed…
            • Ricky Gervais once gave his entire family Lottery scratchcards for Christmas, saying: 'I was really busy and forgot to buy presents. I got everyone £20-worth. They all laughed - but soon stopped when they realised they weren't getting anything else.'
              • Frank Carson on Bernard Manning: 'How could you call this man a racist? The first thing he did for his funeral was order four black horses.' Erm, thanks, Frank.
