James Mullinger - Living the Dream - 3 1/2 Stars

Mullinger continues to mine for comedy within the rich seam of his own life and often strikes gold. One of my criticisms of Mullinger's previous performance was his inability to move on when the well was running dry but Living the Dream has a better rhythm and structure than his previous effort.

In my head I am brilliant at DIY and I want to be able to say things like, "Pass me the Phillips screwdriver will you?" "You want a use square drill head for that..." I would love to be one of those lesbians that can deal with any kind of DIY emergency.

Honey I've Planned a Romantic Meal, How Does McDonalds Sound?

It seems almost laughable that McDonalds could be associated with any kind of class, grandeur or romance. Yet that is exactly what messers Ford, Welland, Peachey and co. attempted to do. Yes, people from my school, my class at school have achieved internet fame!

It's All Come to This: GTA V Launch Day Experiences

I won't ruin the game for anybody who hasn't played it yet, but I must make a serious point about it: It is even better than I expected. Everything about it feels amazing; it is as close to perfection as a video game can be, and totally worth the time and effort that Rockstar have gone to to develop it over the last few years.

Since I turn 25 next weekend, I thought I'd do some light research into quarter-century bucket lists. Not that I'm dying (physically), but it's always good to know what you should have achieved by now.

This was it. The result of three months of hard work was about to be broadcast to a roomful of big-hitters. Three of Britain's top talent agents, and two of the industry's most successful producers of on-screen talent were on the panel; Kirsty Wark was chairing the session...

Why Brits Still Don't Get the Irish

Comedy shows like Mock the Week, Live at the Apollo and Eight Out of 10 Cats have all had British comedians mocking the Irish, normally on account of Dara O'Briain or some other 'Paddy' being present.

The park near our house is huge. Ovals, playgrounds, tennis courts and a big creek runs through the park; it's more of a suburb than a park. The park has many places to setup a party, many, many idyllic settings. My Dad had an abundance of places to setup the party table. He set the party table next to a stolen car.

Here's one quick way to work out if someone's racist. If they say, 'I'm not racist, but...' Then they're definitely racist. Really, that phrase should be outlawed. The phrase should be, "I am a racist, and..."

Twitter of course breeds opinions faster than Nick Ferrari on a Waltzer. I no longer need to stand on the top of an African mountain to "find myself", I can quite easily log onto my 'interactions' to find that someone anonymously thinks I look like Ed Sheeran with AIDS.

My mum once told me that "life is a journey," which is unfortunate as we're both prone to carsickness, seasickness and airsickness. I'm pretty sure most people don't feel a rising nausea watching someone on a moped.

At the time of writing it looks like a casual remark by Secretary of State John Kerry has accidentally made the third world war a little less likely.
