'JOSH' RETURNS TO BBC THREE FOR A 2ND SERIES THIS AUTUMN

 

After a successful debut first series in 2015, hugely popular stand-up Josh Widdicombe returns for a second series of Josh, a quirky comedy about the highs and lows of life as an anxious old man trapped in an anxious young man’s body.

Written by Josh Widdicombe and Tom Craine with Henry Paker and directed by David Schneider (I'm Alan Partridge and The Day Today), the 6 x 30 minute series will air on BBC Three this September (date to be confirmed).

Josh is back and he’s nerdier and more awkward than ever. And his hopelessly selfish flat-mates aren’t helping matters. Welsh charmer and football shirt aficionado, Owen (Elis James) is sabotaging Josh’s love-life – again – and disaster-prone Kate (Beattie Edmondson) is scoring more own-goals than Josh’s beloved Plymouth Argyle. Not to mention over-familiar landlord, Geoff (Jack Dee), who always seems to be popping round and getting in the way.

SEANN WALSH ‘ONE FOR THE ROAD’ ** BRAND NEW TOUR ANNOUNCED FOR AUTUMN 2016**

The Lie-in King returns with a brand new tour kicking off this autumn! Described by the Guardian as “unquestionably the best observational comic of his generation" Seann Walsh will be traveling the UK with over 60 dates of his highly anticipated show ‘One For The Road’

However disheveled he may be, the Foster's Comedy Award nominee is also one of the best comics in the country. With a keen observational mind, Seann can spot the absurdity in everything and convert it to perfectly delivered stand-up comedy.  You might have seen Seann on TV, but he’s something else live – pacing the stage, working the room and reducing crowds to hysterics. Even if he’d probably rather be at home watching Sky Sports News.
