It was announced today (Wednesday 31st August) that Comedy Central UK has greenlit a unique and high energy comedy entertainment series fronted by comedian CHRIS RAMSEY, with the working title Feeding Chris Ramsey.
The 8 x 30 minute series, produced by Avalon Television, will be shot in front of a live audience at the London Studios this autumn and will feature Ramsey, guest comedians, and a celebrity taking an in-depth look at the influx of random stories sent to Chris on his social media feeds, via a mixture of games, prerecorded items and audience interaction.
The show’s Commissioning Editor, Louise Holmes, Vice President of Programming, Comedy Central commented: “Following a successful pilot, we’re thrilled to be taking this show to the next level. Topical stories and a live audience always make for unexpected and unmissable TV. Chris is exceptionally talented and ridiculously hot property both on and off the comedy scene right now, so we can’t wait to see him bring this concept to life for our audiences.”
Chris Ramsey said: “I’m proper chuffed to be doing my own TV show with Comedy Central. I’m a huge fan of the channel and I’ve got a fantastic team working with me on it. I am very much looking forward to taking all of the credit for their hard work, because as we all know there is no I in team, but there is an I in Chris.”
Feeding Chris Ramsey, which is slated to air in January 2017, will be produced for Avalon by Mark Iddon, with Richard Allen-Turner and Jon Thoday as executive producers and Emma Clarke as executive producer for Comedy Central.
