The Glove – Vic and Bob’s movie is set to finally go in to production next year, and some posters have been released hinting at what it might be like, along with an official synopsis: “The Glove is a comedy road movie about two best friends in search of a mythical training glove. Vic and Bob are childhood friends who own a junk shop together where they both work and live. Profits are down and with their futures in jeopardy, they approach their obnoxious landlord to explain their ‘rent’ problems. Rather than helping them, the unsavoury character gives them a choice: eviction, or locate for him a rare and unusual item…”. Interesting originally the glove’s was Michael Jackson’s, but given there’s no reference to him now that may well have changed. Also, currently no casting news has been announced, though that does look like Vic and Bob regular Matt Lucas in the poster. https://www.comedy.co.uk/film/news/5993/vic-and-bobs-the-glove-posters/

To much reserve, she now finds herself in conservative middle America alongside her well-intentioned husband (J. Bernard Calloway), a struggle of a sister (Tami Roman), and two distinct sets of kids (Theodore Barnes, Briyana Guadalupe, Vince Swann) raised under very different circumstances.” https://variety.com/2020/tv/news/ms-pat-comedy-series-bet-plus-1234803355/

My Life In Quarantine – Is a brand new comedy special from Steve Treviño all about his life in quarantine. “On September 12th, Steve Trevino performed this once in a lifetime show outdoors, in-front of a masked, socially distanced audience, and you can watch it below, and an episode of his live podcast follows afterwards. In the special Treviño takes on the brutal reality of realizing he’s nonessential. He uses his tongue-in-cheek humour when referencing not being able to tour over the last few months, while also finding laughs in all aspects of the “shutdowns”— panic shopping, being home with his wife and best friend Renae (whom he jokingly calls Captain Evil), the etiquette of face masks/hand sanitizing, and of course, living and working in your PJ’s. But in this unique time, Treviño’s ability to find humour in the everyday is what we all need to hear and exactly what you find within the special. Please note a portion of proceeds from this special & live podcast are going to our Veterans in support of Veteran’s Day on November 11th, 2020.” https://onlocationlive.com/product/steve-trevino-my-life-in-quarantine

After a year of societal upheaval, plague, murder hornets and banana bread, Yearly Departed will give 2020 the huge send-off it deserves, from some of the world’s funniest women.” https://www.beyondthejoke.co.uk/content/9510/amazon-phoebe-robinson
