Does anyone else find this show, currently on Sky1, hilarious? The people are so entertaining and it's becoming my guilty pleasure! Great TV! aha.

Does anyone know how many episodes have broadcast so far?

Pretty sure it started last week. Its awful, the people are so fake, dellusional,arrogant, weird, and annoying! Represents some of the worst sides of the industry.

I do agree though it is hilarious for all the wrong reasons.

Glad someone shares my humour. Thanks for the confirmation.

I do agree is represents all the wrong sides but is purely made up of fame hungry individuals fighting for screen time.

It's just pure laughs.

Has that Louie guy been on yet. He is one of the most awful people in the West End. He's been around for years and is a nightmare where ever he works.
His forte is splitting companys and causing such awful atmosphere backstage that agents have had to be brought in to sort it out!
I saw just seconds of him on an ad for this trash and the hairs on my arm stood up in horror!
I had gladly erased him from my memory.

Yeah he's been on Mama. He's been craving camera time and doing splits left right and centre, calling himself the "Dance master".

LOL.

When I was with my mother the other day, it came on the telly, and she turned to me and said "THIS, is the industry you want to get in to?
I can come to terms with you doing Performing Arts, but I WILL disown you if you turn into someone like that!"

Oh, how I love my Mamma, but it is things like this that make the general public conceive this extremely camp, gay and OTT stereotype of everything performance and musical theatre, when it is not a fair representation of the facts!

Don't forget this is produced by a Rupert Murdoch company. Who also owns the Sun red top. Need I say more! Repulsive.

Has that Louie guy been on yet. He is one of the most awful people in the West End. He's been around for years and is a nightmare where ever he works.

Loved this quote from Charlie Brooker's TV column in the Guardian today, talking about the programme and this guy in particular:

"The most immediately noticeable example is a berk called Louie Spence, a creature so theatrically camp he seems perpetually on the verge of turning into a disco-dancing peacock. God knows what his job at the studio actually consists of: you could watch for a thousand years and never find out. All he does is mug for the cameras, perpetually striking poses, pulling arch faces, cracking lurid innuendo, shrieking, mincing and generally behaving in a way no fictional gay character has been permitted to do for decades. Given the right narrator, this could be a heartbreaking doc about an incurable mental condition whose sufferers lose their minds at the sight of a film crew and turn into a 1978 sitcom homosexual."

Why can't I look away from this car crash? Louie, dear lord just finished watching him pretend to be a cat, he's certainly something that rhymes with cat.

I'm totally with you. At least Louie is aware that he's a prancing idiot. That Andrew ACTUALLY think's he's got talent, what a joke.

This programme never fails to entertain. LOL

Which one is Andrew? the blonde with a 90's boy band hairdo?

Also does anyone know anything about the musical they were showcasing at the end of this weeks ep-a kind of evil dead the musical type show by the looks of things! (yes I know there actually was an evil dead the musical but I'm sure that wasn't it!)

Sky1 advertised a chance to be at the 'live finale' whatever that may entail!

I'm with you, MichaelUK92. It's my guilty pleasure as well -- the sheer campness of it all leaves me gobsmacked. I positively shriek with laughter.

Bit like a car wreck, actually: you don't want to look, but...

Andrews thrashes my head and is such a diva. The girl in his band was far superior to him vocally and she seems like a decent person. I say fire the t**t and give her the opportunity she blates deserves! She's got a bit of the old Karen Oh thing going on and could work it!

Louie... i don't understand him and i'm actually quite frightened of him. He blatently lives under a bridge and harrases people with his step ball change!
Jesus Loves You... Everybody else thinks you're an idiot!
