While the Channel 5 network has been recently producing documentaries profiling comedians, actual comedy shows are thin on the ground.
Now they have made a new satirical comedy for their My5 channel entitled Comedy Bigmouths. Hosted by comedian Ian Stone, the show features stand-up and sketches, central over-arching subjects, and attempts to challenge audience opinions. Among the regulars they include Ian Moore, Jo Caulfield and Zoe Lyons, but the one who is perhaps of most interest is Geoff Norcott, one of the few Conservative-voting pro-Brexit stand-ups in Britain – or at least one of the few to admit it. Each episode also features a special guest, and the first is Ross Noble.
Should be worth a watch, but one worries how it will cope as it goes out at the same time as The Last Leg.
Comedy Bigmouths is on My5 at 22.00.
