The following project has been promoted by
Stephen Fry on Twitter and given his endorsement.

Please get involved if you can - Tom in Oz.

Russell Tovey and Stevie Webb have a mutual friend called Jack Shalloo who just happens to be a fan of the Tovey Blog. (Well frankly who isn't).

Jack has just ventured into making a new comedy show that will stream on-line called The Sketch Bank Show.

He is hoping to create a new way of looking at comedy made by first time people from across the globe that have fresh ideas to share.

If you think you are funny, or your friends are funny get involved.

You can contact the team via Email:

Grabbers movie crew are in Moville

Posted Sunday, January 9, 2011

This is Russell Tovey's current movie where he plays a policeman who spends most of his scenes award winning drunk according to the production staff!

Old Mill

The Grabbers film crew are here in Moville, Northern Ireland.

They have been filming up by the old Mill for the last couple of days.

They have also been eating and drinking at a local bar / restaurant.

The two main stars, it seems, were there for several hours on Saturday evening as well as several of those responsible for creature creation.


It's great to see them out and about and it has given Moville a bit of a boost in January which is normally quiet.

It seems, also, that a local guy called them asking for a part and got one, one would assume as an extra.

It would be great if the film became a big success as it would really put Moville on the map.


If you are out and about this week you might bump into them.

You might even get a part in it as an extra.

Even if not you might get a chat with them or even a look at them.

They seem to be fairly sociable and approachable.

Excited locals

hiboy81: Richard Coyle & Russell Tovey staying in the hotel I work in for 3 weeks!!!!

dohertydan: @russelltovey are you near Ramelton or Letterkenny? That's where my family is from :-) I'm sure you'll be warmly welcomed there

russelltovey: @dohertydan I'm near Muff apparently x

ScottieUK: @russelltovey first time for everything! :-P
