Comedian and actor Adam Buxton of TV show Adam and Joe fame, appears in a new film in which he plays a stately manor gentleman who takes a sideways look at 18th-century portraiture, as part of Tate Britain’s campaign which promotes the gallery’s free collection.

Richard Herring – Hitler’s Moustache DVD

October 31, 2010 · Leave a Comment

Whilst working in a restaurant in the USA, Keith came across this old-fashioned sign in the manager’s office. Stranger still is that the employees consisted of a young African-American, a Jewish waiter and his Irish self, but no dogs to be seen, so perhaps certain prejudices never die. ‘No Blacks. No Jews. No Dogs. No Irish. All Welcome’ is the exploration into racism and religion-ism in the bad old days as well as the issues raised by immigration today.

Critically acclaimed comic Keith Farnan has always found being Irish an advantage – who doesn’t love a good old Irish accent … Read the rest
