Today's update includes BBC Three's comedy rollout, Evesham Comedy Festival, Mick Perrin's flippin secrets and student crushes on Russell Howard

  • Here's a new BBC Three comedy that is notable either because it stars Greg Davies (Comedy.co.uk), Andy Samburg (Hollywood Reporter) or is being made by ex-The Office exec Ash Atalla (Broadcast). Either way: the new BBC Three comedy rollout continues apace...
 
  • (COINCIDENTALLY can you believe we live in an age where Helen Baxendale is playing the mother to late-teenage girls?)
 
  • Continuing to carve out his niche as 'man who doesn't do much but make grand pronouncements about things every once in a while' – perhaps the recent Jubilee spirit is making him angle for Prince Charles' job – Stephen Fry is calling on the British Museum to send the Elgin Marbles back to Greece. SSP
 
  • No need to wank in the stationery cupboard in shame: do it in the corridor with pride! (Russell Howard is a popular student crush, is the relevant news story.) MTV
 
  • The bloke behind lots of the Mighty Boosh's 'look' has a new exhibition which has been excellently covered over here, as one would expect. The Velvet Onion
 
  • The award-winning John Finnemore's Souvenir Programme is back and tickets are available here. BBC Tickets
