KATE & KOJI

A new 'odd couple' comedy from the creators of Outnumbered and Drop the Dead Donkey.

Golden Globe winner Brenda Blethyn (Vera, Secrets & Lies) stars as Kate, the owner of a seaside cafe who forms an unexpected and sparky friendship with Koji, an African asylum-seeker, played by Jimmy Akingbola (In the Long Run, Arrow). Although from very different worlds, they are similar in ways which even they do not recognise, including a dogged determination to never back down! When the fur does start to fly, Kate’s funny and resourceful nephew Medium Dave acts as peacemaker.

Dave is played by Blake Harrison (The Inbetweeners, A Very British Scandal). Barbara Flynn (The Beiderbecke Tapes, The Durrells) stars as Councillor Bone, Kate’s lifelong arch-enemy. Meera Syal (Goodness Gracious Me, Anita and Me) guest stars as a GP who could get Koji deported.

Kate and Koji is written by Guy Jenkin and Andy Hamilton, the writers of many award-winning shows, including Drop the Dead Donkey & Outnumbered.

Andy Hamilton (Have I Got News For You, QI, Old Harry’s Game) will himself be the warm-up for these enjoyable and very funny evenings. If you like shows such as Have I Got News For You, Outnumbered, Father Ted, Episodes, Derry Girls, Who’s Line Is It Anyway, Armstrong and Miller & Drop the Dead Donkey, then this is definitely the show for you.

ROMEO + DUET

Romeo + Duet is a light-entertainment, singing & dating format; where single contributors, aka “pickers”, nab themselves a date off the back of a suitor’s song.

Divided into four rounds, with a picker in each, they’ll get to hear up to 4 singers serenade them, but crucially the picker cannot see the singer. Their decision must be based solely on whether the suitor strikes the right chord.

Set in a studio, our pickers reside on top of a bespoke balcony, in a blind spot to the performance area. The picker will only get to see the performer if they walk all the way down the balcony, passing “the step of no return”. And from there, it triggers the curtain drop to reveal their match.

After picking their perfect match, each newly formed pairing will leave the main stage and head to the greenroom. With the clock ticking, they’ll learn to sing a duet together, all whilst getting to know each other a little better.

The show culminates in the Duet Off, where we welcome back the four couples to perform their duets. Power is then handed over to our studio audience, as they’ll vote for their winning couple of the episode, sending them on a romantic getaway.

The show will record at Dock 10 Studios, Manchester.

Booking is not yet open but if you would like to register your interest, then we can email you when booking opens so that you can apply.

And of course they’ll be asking... What’s Your Beef?

We are looking for couples who will appear together on the show who will air their beef with each other. If you have some cracking 'couple beef', then do let us know.

GEOFF NORCOTT: IT'S OK TO CHANGE YOUR MIND

Don't worry, Geoff hasn't suddenly become a raging Socialist.

But one consequence of Covid is that he, like many people, has had his most solid convictions challenged repeatedly by events.

In this audience comedy show Geoff considers a lot of long-held beliefs that have been challenged by a politically and culturally turbulent twelve months;. it's confusing to have a supposedly right-wing government locking us at home getting cheered on by large parts of the left and it's a lot harder to explain why you believe in a small state when the government is in the process of successfully rolling out a vaccine.

We've seen Remainers denounce the EU over vaccines and - weirdest of all - we have a popular conservative chancellor.

People ask Geoff if he regrets voting for a conservative govt, but looking at the casual attitude to debt, he now regrets not getting one.

As beliefs get challenged, statues fall and breakfast TV presenters get cancelled, Geoff pauses to take it all in.

This show will be an attempt to get to grips with what happens to convictions and ideology when a pandemic comes along and turns everything on its head.

RACHEL PARRIS: AUSTENSIBLY FEMINIST

Would Elizabeth Bennet have been on the Women's March?
Was Fanny Price sex-positive?
How did Colonel Brandon fight the patriarchy?
Was Mr Darcy woke?

Jane Austen is renowned for writing 6 novels that had a lasting impact on British literature. But if she was alive today, would she be waiting in line for Pussy Riot tickets, or running for political office in a paisley trouser suit? The women in her books showed a wide arena of womanhood: from the witty, intelligent and rational to hilariously dull, foolishly romantic and possibly insane. She wrote so many experiences of womanhood. But that was so long ago, and in such a different world. How do her books stand up to the feminist standards of today? Can we learn anything from them? And what would her blog have been called?

Rachel Parris is many things, amongst them 1. a fierce feminist 2. a Jane Austen geek. 3. A romantic. Those things don't always go together seamlessly. But maybe they can.

In a mix of live stand-up and adapted excerpts from the books (performed by guests), Parris presents an irreverent look at Austen the modern feminist, exploring themes of independence, money, fashion, marriage, sex and politics - now and in 1814. She'll see what we can gain from Austen's stories - and whether her characters really are the feminist icons they've been held up to be. And of course, answering the burning questions such as: ‘was Elizabeth Bennet more of a Jameela Jamil or a Kim Kardashian?’.

For this Radio 4 show, our audience will be online, so join us at 7.15 for a 7.30pm start on Monday 11th January 2021 and enjoy Rachel's show from the comfort of your own sofa, alone or with your household.

EXPLICABLE ME

Hosted by Suzi Ruffell, assisted by Ahir Shah, Explicable Me is a comedy entertainment show built around personality tests. We all love those Buzzfeed and Cosmopolitan tests that discover what pizza topping we are, what percentage Kardashian we are and if our sex life were a movie what movie would it be.

Suzi welcomes two celebrity guests to the show, and Ahir administers our own bespoke, funny, slightly unusual personality tests to find out what drives them, what other people think of them, and what direction their moral compass is pointing. On Tuesday 21st January, Suzi's guests will be AJ Odudu & Tom Allen.

This BBC Radio 2 show will play host to some great stars, make you laugh and perhaps even make you reassess just who you are as a human.

The show was recorded at RADA Studios on Chenies Street just off Tottenham Court Road.

THE TEZ O'CLOCK SHOW

One of the most exciting break out stars in British comedy, Tez Ilyas, has his own show, The Tez O’Clock Show, a late-night satirical comedy show… that is TRULY anti-establishment – it’s hosted by a northern working-class British-Asian-Muslim.

Comedian Tez Ilyas presents a fast-paced mix of stand-up, sketches and studio antics. Filmed in Manchester with a combination of comedians and celebrity guests, this hilarious and subversive show will blow the cobwebs off TV satire and prove once and for all that it’s possible to joke about anyone and anything without getting cancelled.

The show is a topical mix of sketches and studio antics, including provocative monologues and celebrity interviews.

Crashing into the studio show will be parodies, sketches and news bulletins from the Pakistani Broadcasting Corporation (PBC), starring Man Like Mobeen’s Guz Khan and comedian Sindhu Vee, which will provide a satirical take on the news and show Britain (and the West) in a very different light.

The studio show sees Tez take part in a briefing room – just like the ones that happened when he worked at the Home Office - on the hot topics of the day. Here he’ll be briefed by his fellow fast rising comics and Uncivil Servants, Sophie Willan and Adam Rowe, who will each try and sway him to their way of thinking.

He’ll then be joined by his co-anchor Sindhu Vee, in the on set shisha café, where they’ll be joined by funny, opinionated, big name guests.

There’ll even be a chance for some of our audience to weigh in on hot topics – so if you like shouting at the telly, then this could be your moment.

The series was filmed at Dock 10, Media City, Salford.
