Steven Toast interview

From growing up in the tallest castle in the world, to becoming Britain's finest actor in high-winds and now crossing the pond to appear in the next Star Wars movie, actor Steven Toast tells Tim Bano about moments that have made up his theatre career.

TV review: Toast Of Tinseltown, Episode 3, The Scorecard

I think Toast Of Tinseltown is my favourite comedy on television at the moment.

Reviews: Mandy; Toast Of Tinseltown

It's unsurprising that Mandy attracts such a high calibre of co-stars: it's crammed with ingenuity and whip-smart silliness. Last week also saw the return of cult comedy character Steven Toast. I've viewed the second Tinseltown-set episode and I'm a little anxious: Toast is such an intrinsically British concept; I do hope he travels well.

Toast Of Tinseltown review

Toast is hot stuff - with more laughs in 30 minutes than in most sitcom series.

Steven Toast: One of the best comic creations of the last 10 years

The Fellini of failure's return in BBC sitcom Toast Of Tinseltown is a long-awaited chance to catch up with a televisual joy - who has more in common with most of us than we'd like to admit.

TV review: Toast Of Tinseltown, BBC Two

The script is superb and and the visual gags are the icing on the cake, from the 1970s titles (Columbo 1974?) to the gaggle of ancient in-joke celebs in the "Colonial Club" including David Hockney, George Melly and Tom Baker in his Doctor Who iteration.

Toast Of Tinseltown review

With no great change from the Channel 4 series, Toast Of Tinseltown might not win this bonkers, larger-than-life creation many more fans beyond its original devoted, but cult-sized fanbase. Nonetheless, it's good to see mainstream TV still has space for this thick-skinned self-centred oddball.

Toast Of Tinseltown review

Matt Berry's idiotic actor returns - and is just as weird as ever.

Toast Of Tinseltown, BBC2, review

Matt Berry's gloriously surreal cult comedy goes to Hollywood.
