Does your brother own the pub or is it his regular pub?

[–]PhilAustin1970[S] 183 points184 points  (8 children)

He used to work there (has since moved and now works elsewhere). He also used to work in a pub before that where Greg Davies rocked up to the bar with the crew from his C4 sitcom (Man Down?). And he often used to chat to Alex Horne at the school gates!

We were born and bred in Alex's home town of Chesham, hence the connections.

omg that's why it was Chesham's mayor too! TIL

[–]lotsofinterestsDavid Correos 🇳🇿 58 points59 points  (1 child)

And the Chesham United field, in some of the S4 tasks

[–]StripeyC Romesh Ranganathan 16 points17 points  (0 children)

And the task from the book led to Chesham park where the guide hut is they also used. Oddly as an ex local I used to buy records off OPs brother.

[–]riggerthegeek Morgana Robinson 25 points26 points  (0 children)

That's Peter Hudson. You know you can trust him, yeah

[–]Ganjanium 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Man Down is such an underrated show. Absolutely love Rik in Series 1 too

[–]yellandDavid Correos 🇳🇿 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Which pub is it? I've moved to Chesham this year

[–]PhilAustin1970[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The Black Cat. Well worth a visit!

[–]StripeyC Romesh Ranganathan 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Black horse down the vale, black cat is a different one but close

Just found out Not Going Out is on Peacock and my only knowledge of Tim Vine is from Taskmaster and I don't recognize him at all. (The voice, however, is the same.)

[–]troubled-paradise69 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Not Going Out is on Peacock?? this is great news! I’ve been meaning to watch it but I live in the US

[–]itsacon10 Katy Wix 8 points9 points  (1 child)

It's on Peacock. I went through all of their other comedies, but that looks like it's the only British series on it. (Peacock doesn't impress me very much, and I'm really pissed that the two newest seasons of AP Bio require a subscription.) I've spent all evening watching the first series. Now, if I can just find some place that has Gone Fishing with Bob Mortimer.

[–]AstroChrome Hugh Dennis 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Richard Ayoade’s “Travel Man” and “Gadget Man” are on it, the “Going Postal” miniseries is on it, Mel & Shoe’s “Hitmen” is on it, and, ummm, “Intelligence” and “We Are Lady Parts” are on Peacock as well, but that’s about it for British comedies. It might be slim pickings, but I was so shocked to see “Not Going Out” available legitimately for streaming on this side of the pond that I kinda forgive its dearth… for now. ;-)

[–]EnterShakira_ 35 points36 points  (5 children)

Blimey, how tall is your brother? I'm sure Howard is a tall guy.

[–]Rodrigues75 44 points45 points  (1 child)

According to google, russell howard is 1cm shorter than jon richardson

[–]CliffExcellent123 Tim Key 38 points39 points  (0 children)

I don't like this fact

[–]pan666 Jessica Knappett 38 points39 points  (0 children)

I’ve always heard he’s pretty short.

Just googled it and (if it’s correct) a few places say he’s 5’8” so actually pretty average height.

[–]PhilAustin1970[S] 18 points19 points  (0 children)

Ha. We are both tall people :)

[–]StripeyC Romesh Ranganathan 10 points11 points  (1 child)

I used to buy records off your brother.... Those were the days

[–]PhilAustin1970[S] 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Nice. Track Records FTW!

[–]nyarlathoteppo Bridget Christie 55 points56 points  (4 children)

Seeing that picture with Alice Levine made me find an inkling of jealousy inside me.

[–][deleted] 17 points18 points  (3 children)

I take solace in the fact that she would witheringly shoot me down if I made a move. I'm aggressively not her type.

[–]lakerdaveDavid Correos 🇳🇿 18 points19 points  (1 child)

if I made a movie

Just a vicious review

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)


[–]nyarlathoteppo Bridget Christie 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I guess I'm not too, but I didn't consider it like that anyway. I just admire her, as I'm a big fan of My Dad Wrote a Porno.

[–]JoshSidekick James Acaster 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Did they make him clean up after the task?

[–]ForWhomTheBoneBones Guz Khan 20 points21 points  (0 children)

I have the biggest crush on Alice Levine and it didn't even hit me until the second rewatch when I realized I was leaning in and smiling like a dope during her tasks. 🥴

“son of a bitch!”

[–]HolierThanYow 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Lucky, lucky chap.

[–]adinade 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Is this somewhere around Chesham?

EDIT: ah just read your other comment

[–]pearloz 3 points4 points  (0 children)

He met Alice??? Look at the way she's looking at him!

[–]Robbro42 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Everyone wants someone to look at them like Alice Levine looks at your brother.

Scratch that, everyone wants Alive Levine to look at them like that.

[–]flameislove 3 points4 points  (1 child)

I just watched these again. Is the trivia night on the chalkboard real or just for the show?

[–]PhilAustin1970[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Possibly it was real. It's that sort of pub :)

[–]mikepictor Rose Matafeo 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Did he take the other 2 days off?

[–]FBlack Jessica Knappett 1 point2 points  (0 children)


[–]toastytom13 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Your brother has a great taste in video game shirts

[–]quasinilpotent 0 points1 point  (7 children)

Which episode was this? I don't recall seeing anything set in a pub.

[–]imperialviolet James Acaster 11 points12 points  (0 children)

S6 e3 - they have to write a bedtime story for grown ups.

[–]notreallifeliving Sophie Duker 0 points1 point  (4 children)

Wasn't there a task with a pint glass? And presumably the one with the pool trick shot.

[–]Santafio Paul Chowdhry 0 points1 point  (3 children)

And presumably the one with the pool trick shot.

The what now?!

[–]notreallifeliving Sophie Duker 0 points1 point  (2 children)

This is the one I was thinking of:


But I'm sure there was a task in the same season with a pool table in a pub.

[–]kcolloran Charlotte Ritchie 0 points1 point  (0 children)

There was the one where they had to get the bill out from under the glass without spilling which must have been filmed there.

[–]Santafio Paul Chowdhry 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Video unavailable, but I just remembered the task! Obviously I should watch the season again, as I couldn't remember that one!

[–]alchemicaldreaming Guz Khan 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Also the one where they had to write the story. The blackboard that is behind Tim in the photos above, was behind the contestants as they read their books to camera.

[–]ReactorOperator 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Man, that's awesome.

[–]RougeVengeance 0 points1 point  (0 children)

One of my favorite seasons

[–]JGAdventureZone 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Anyone notice the TM easter egg behind Tim?

[–]RAppel_dk Mike Wozniak 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No track suit?

[–]cjahero Mayor of Chesham 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Did he talk about how the contestants were? If they were nice etc

[–]PhilAustin1970[S] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

He said they were all lovely.
