The Bonzo Dog Chattoon Cartoon show

March 2, 2011 in News

The Chattoon! cartoon show has released a new interview with Neil Innes of  Rutland Weekend Television and The Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band (Princess Anne on Sousaphone).

The featured cartoonist in this episode, Simon Ellinas, told Bloghorn;

Neil and Yvonne Innes invited us out to their house in Suffolk to do this Chattoon! after I met him at an Idiot Bastard Band gig in London. As it was a much longer shoot than the Comedy Store, it was possible to do most of the cartooning on the spot in real time.

You can enjoy the edited highlights above – and  a back catalogue song of Neil’s below. Complete with a fine understanding of the power in good cartoon jokes.

Did you spot a young Rowan Atkinson in the video?

Chattoon at the London Comedy Store

November 3, 2010 in General, News

Cartoonist Simon Ellinas and speaker Alan Stevens have launched the Chattoon show by interviewing Neil Mullarkey and Richard Vranch of the Comedy Store Players.

Simon told Bloghorn;

After being asked to draw Ricky Gervais, Stephen Merchant and Karl Pilkington on GMTV while they were being interviewed, it struck me as a great idea for a short interview series whilst at the same time putting cartoons into the public consciousness.

We’re initially looking at it as a web project to promote all our individual talents but if a TV producer likes the idea we won’t be reluctant to discuss possibilities.
