Are you having a laugh? After this particularly grim winter, we wouldn’t blame you if you weren’t. But don’t worry – HBO are here to banish those blues once and for all. The cable and satellite network is known for its top-quality comedy shows, and this spring it’s releasing a cacklesome cache of both brand-new and much-loved shows on DVD, Blu-ray and digital download.
Fresh this year is the first series of Insecure, co-written by and starring Issa Rae, best known for her web series, Awkward Black Girl. Also making its debut is teachers-at-war comedy Vice Principals (above), from the outrageous minds behind Eastbound & Down.
The Big Issue has inspired the launch of 120 street papers globally, including sister titles in Australia, South Africa, Japan, Taiwan and Korea.
Ballers is back, with Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson this time flexing his comedy muscles as a retired American football star now immersed in the murky world of player management. And to complete this veritable gag-bag of giggles are withering US political satire Veep and Mike Judge’s computer geek-com Silicon Valley.
We have five sets of all five HBO hit comedies – Insecure, Ballers, Vice Principles, Veep and Silicon Valley – to give away on DVD.
