So you love Dibley, you adore Fawlty, and you can’t live without Porridge. But, if like me, you are a little sick of endless re runs of classics on UK Gold then this is the article for you. It’s easy to think that they just don’t make em like they used to, but with so many channels producing top quality comedy there is as much great new stuff as there has ever been. In fact there are upwards of thirty British comedy shows in production ready to hit the small screen next year. Here’s a roundup of a few.
GREATEST STAND UP COMEDIANS (Channel 5)
If you’re a bit of a comedy geek like me then you are probably a bit of a fan of those Channel 5 list programs. It’s a guilty pleasure but we all do it. The latest offering is the top fifty greatest stand up comedians of all time in this three hour special.
SPENDING DAVE’S MONEY (Dave)
Well this is a new take of Brewster’s Millions. Celebrity duos jetted to far flung places and challenged to spend up to £10,000 of channel Dave’s money in just 24 hours. It may sound easy but are hapless profligates face strict rules, can only gamble away 10% on rash bets and face forfeits if they keep even one penny.
