AboutEmma Louise Obank
Admittedly I was fairly dubious about last night’s theatre visit after having drudged through several reviews that deemed Saunders’ Spice sensation musical a massive flop. I felt I’d let the side down, as being the family thespian it is always my duty to pick a show.

2013 is to be set to be another great year for British Television. At the end of January when everyone tires of bidding friends and colleagues a Happy New Year, Ricky Gervais’ ‘Derek’ will be returning to our screens for its much anticipated full first series. The pilot was first broadcast in 2012 and was welcomed by over 3 million viewers in the UK. The series is both written by and stars Ricky Gervais who has previously had us peeing ourselves with laughter at television hits such as ‘Extras’ and ‘The Office’. ‘Derek’ also stars Ricky’s best mate Karl Pilkington (An Idiot Abroad), as well as Kerry Godliman (Live At The Apollo) and David Earl (Extras).
This week Comedy Chords sat down with Kerry to chat about her role as Hannah in the upcoming series that is sure to be yet another success for Ricky Gervais. Kerry plays a lonely singleton carer with a heart of gold. Kerry is no stranger to the comedy scene having regularly performed as a stand-up as well as dabbling in a bit of comedy radio. Kerry talks to us about Ricky’s farting antics, cracking up on set and how she went from being a drama school student to performing on the big screen as a female stand-up.
