Preview: Friday Night Live

Ben Elton - Friday Night Live

Friday Night Live returns for a 90-minute comedy variety special that promises to be loud, outrageous, noisy and VERY funny.

Kicking off Truth and Dare season, to mark Channel 4’s 40th anniversary, Friday Night Live reunites the game-changing architects of anarchy who broke through in the mid-1980s and blends their ground-breaking comedy exploits with today’s trailblazers who are storming the circuit. Back to host is the masterful Ben Elton, who is joined by friends from the original series such as Harry Enfield, Julian Clary and Jo Brand, and new friends from today’s circuit including Rosie Jones, Mawaan Rizwan, Jordan Gray, Ronni Ancona and Sam Campbell, who will provide a mixture of topical sketches and incredible stand-up. As well as all that stonking comedy talent in one room, there’s live music courtesy of Mercury Prize nominee Self Esteem.

Friday Night Live is back! And it promises to be the biggest, boldest party in town

Friday Night Live – Friday at 9.00pm on Channel 4.
