Coogan and Brydon Reunite As Themselves (Again)

Just when you thought Rob Brydon and Steve Coogan couldnt do anything wrong (well Brydon anyway) they have decided to make yet another Curb Your Enthusiasm style comedy, even though its hard to imagine Brydon and Coogan doing something bad, is another sitcom about the life of celebrities really what anybody wants to see at the moment? The reaction to Simon Amstell’s Grandma’s House would suggest not.

Although having said that, this preview clip that has been released reminds us that Rob Brydon’s “Im the best at ¬†impressions” gag will be funny forever so why cant sitcoms about celebrities be funny forever aswell, lets just hope it can live upto Curb, Extras or even Robs’s own Annually Retentive.

The Trip, set to be release in the autumn, is produced by Coogan’s Baby Cow productions is directed by Michael Winterbottom, who directed the two in 2005’s A Cock and Bull Story.
