The latest comedy pilot from BBC Two is a sketch show, which these days is somewhat rare. A sketch show with an all-black cast is even rarer.

Starring Vivienne Acheampong, Gbemisola Ikumelo, Samson Kayo, John MacMillan, Tom Moutchi and Roxy Sternberg, Famalam claims that there is, “no area of the universe off-limits”.

Among the sketches on offer we see a trailer for the latest Nollywood blockbuster, meet two women trying to prove they don’t need men on the life, learn who is responsible for spam emails, and encounter the real rulers of the world.

Famalam is on BBC Two at 22.00.
