Comedy is a weird one. One minute you're performing to 12 people (8 of whom are comedians) in a room above a pub in Leicester Square with no microphone, no stage lights and a potted plant as a set piece and five years and a lot of miles later you can sell out your own show at The Lowry. Then, if you get super lucky, you get to do some TV.

Scots comedienne Janey Godley's daughter Ashley Storrie has decided to take up comedy again, after a gap of about 11 years (depending on how you calculate it). Ashley got her first acting part at the age of three as 'the wee girl in the metal tea urn' in the movie Alabama.

To save money on paying the police, England and Wales are now blessed with cheaper "Community Support Officers" to back-up the 'real' police. I suspect (with no evidence, m'lud) that these are often wanna policemen and wannabe policewomen with over-developed superiority complexes.

I went to the recording of a TV show as a member of the audience and queued up with the audience. It was a pilot for a possible comedy panel show series and was being recorded by an experienced independent production company at a BBC studio site for (it seemed) possible transmission on a non-BBC channel.

Picture the scene, it's a Tuesday evening at the Novello Theatre just off the Strand and I am sat between Ronnie Corbett and Andrew Scott (Moriarty from Sherlock). Dotted around us are the American from Downton, a man from War Horse, Patricia Routledge and Olivia Coleman. It could not have turned out better.
