Steve Coogan hits rock bottom – Comes to Canberra

By johnboy - 5 March 2009 11

The comedy news blog “gagging for it” brings news that Steve Coogan is coming to Canberra to play the Canberra Theatre.

A decade ago Coogan was very funny. But since then he’s done very little other than appear in a string of minor Hollywood roles and star in a few B-list lemons.

And we’re talking about a man who hoovers so much cocaine and heroin that he appalls Courtney Love.

Courtney Love!!!

It could be sheer genius, it could be a complete train wreck. Just don’t say you weren’t warned.

Heck I might go along just to see the train wreck.

What’s Your opinion?

Head scratching here; I’ve just got tickets for Coogan, released a fortnight before the show. For Xmas, as one of her presents, I gave my daughter a ticket for Dylan Moran for his April show, bought 4 months in advance?

WTF gives there then?

Well I succumbed, I’ll go see him again, just got tickets. I hope her indoors and the kids enjoy him. They’ve seen his “Alan Partridge” stuff, but not a lot else.

I must get the Saxondale series on DVD.

The best stuff Coogan ever did was the; “Knowing Me, Knowing You” radio series for Radio four. The CD’s are a great hot if you have a long car journey.

He is beind Baby Cow? Interesting. I was just going through my collection of the Mighty Boosh the other night.

Off the specific topic of Steven Coogan (bear with me), but there was a nice set of graphs t’other day showing prices of ACT Heroin vs other national price trends.

We tend to follow an average of Victorian (low) & NSW (middlingly-high) prices, but closer to Victorian than NSW, but our average amount of heroin & other intravenous drugs consumed per user are amongst the highest in the country.

Steve’s travel itinerary of Canberra-Melbourne-Perth-Adelaide-Brisbane-Sydney reads almost perfectly like a list of cheap & common acceptance of drug usage -> highest priced & rare.

Its almost like he’s here for a bender instead of work. 😐

Not my standards, the ones he set earlier in his career. Before trying to get into the gossip mags became his priority.

Tristram Shandy was worth watching, but watching him live on stage…?

Pommy bastard 9:37 am 05 Mar 09

I’ve seen him live, several times, back in Blighty, it’s a good show. (Though some knowledge of his characters and their foibles is necessary to get the full joke.)

24 Hour Party People was a good movie.

That is all.

He still does some good TV. Saxondale was pissfunny.

Gobbo 8:46 am 05 Mar 09

I’ll be there.
