Apologies if this has been done - couldn’t see it.
Anyone else in the UK catch “The Fear” on TV last night?
Unicycling gets a brief appearance on mainstream TV but only so a unicylist can get beaten up by the main character.
Maybe I’m being overly sensitive but it’d have been nice to see something a bit more positive for an often maligned sport.
Haven’t seen it yet, but I think I’ve taped it.
Now you mention it, I seem to remember they posted on this board some time back looking for a unicyclist in Brighton for the part? Or am I dreaming it?
Yes, I could search. Maybe in a bit.

No I didn’t watch it although I had read of the unicycle attack. In his defence isn’t the main character supposed to have alzheimer’s? Though if and when I suffer from dementia I hope I behave more like…
Have fun and stay safe,
Not sure who the unicyclist that got beat up was but Im in it along with Sam Goodburn and 3 other lads. Not sure how much screen time we’ll get or even if you’ll be able to see our faces but the story certainly sounded interesting
I am the unicyclist in that episode. The cast crew and writers definitely weren’t anti unicyclist in any way
Everyone was entranced by the unicycle most of the time. Peter Mullan who played the lead was very nice and constantly worried about my safety bless him nicest man to be beaten up by ever
The script called for a unicycle as it was a bit more “Brighton” I.e. zany
It’s ironic as most of Brighton is infested with cyclist who were less than happy to stop for the filming. A few of them just refused to slow at all while we were filming and rode past at full speed with no consideration for what I was doing at all.
