Hello from the BUG team!
It’s an exciting week at BUG Towers: the very first episode of our TV series, Adam Buxton’s Bug, airs on Sky Atlantic tonight at 9.30pm.
The series runs for 8 weeks and alongside some of our best-loved videos and YouTube comments, it also features a clutch of brand new videos made specially for the series by some of BUG’s favourite directors. Find out more about the making of the shows and the directors we collaborated with on Adam’s blog. And if you can’t wait til tonight, here’s a sneak preview of the series.
And you can also find some special behind-the-scenes interviews and videos on the Sky BUG page. Right now you can watch Adam and Garth Jennings talking about the making of the video for Guitar Wolf’s Summertime Blues which appears in tonight’s episode!
BUG at Latitude this weekend, and Cambridge next weekend!
Seek out Adam and the BUG team in the Film & Music Arena at Latitude at 5.15pm on Saturday afternoon. We’ve got a whole hour of the best BUG videos of the past year, and loads more fun with Dr Buckules. Then we’ll be in Cambridge on Sunday 22nd for the Comedy Festival at 7pm at the Junction J2. Why not grab a BUG t-shirt from our store so we can spot the real BUG fans from the people who just wandered in to shelter from rain!
