Don’t think TMINE is ignoring you, Southbank Centre. You may not have your own Events category here yet, but you soon will at this rate, because you’ve got yourself another TV event, this time in September.
Richard Ayoade: Ayoade on Top
Date: Thursday September 5
Venue: Royal Festive Hall
In a London exclusive, the writer and director reflects on his award-winning films, comedy and perhaps the best cabin crew dramedy ever filmed in conversation with Adam Buxton.
Ayoade first burst onto our screens as the character of Dean Learner in Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace and Maurice Moss in the Emmy Award-winning The IT Crowd, for which he was awarded a BAFTA as Best Performance in a Comedy.
In addition to directing and co-writing Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace, he has adapted and directed Joe Dunthorne’s novel Submarine for the screen, and is the co-writer (with Avi Korine) and director of film The Double, starring Jesse Eisenberg.
Hear from Ayoade as he reflects on making comedy and films, and argues for the canonisation of View From the Top, starring Gwyneth Paltrow, as a cinematic masterpiece.
Drawing on his latest book, Ayoade on Top, the author takes us on a journey from Peckham to Paris by way of Nevada and other places we don’t care about.
Along the way we encounter unforgettable and forgettable characters, descend into madness and ascend to the sublime summit of a film that celebrates capitalism in all its victimless glory.
