BBC Three unveils 7 online comedies

MUMBAI: BBC Three has announced seven new web exclusive comedies produced for bbc.co.uk/bbcthree.


The seven web exclusives will be available on the BBC Three site from 2 July. Feed My Funny exclusives extend BBC Three’s reputation for breaking new comedy talent on TV to the web.


From new sketch show formats like ‘For The Win‘ and ‘Dawson Bros Funtime‘, to hidden camera stunts in ‘Impractical Jokers‘, a mockumentary about a pirate radio station in ‘People Just Do Nothing‘, a vehicle for exciting new stand up Imran Yusuf, Alison Jackson’s spoof celebrity gossip show Celebrity Bitchslap News and surreal silent comedy from ‘The TapeFace Tapes‘, this is British comedy only available online.


Impractical Jokers is the hilarious show in which four friends compete in unbelievably awkward scenarios – all recorded by hidden cameras. But in this show, winning doesn’t matter – it’s the loser who counts, because whoever loses gets punished in the most mortifying challenge ever!


For The Win is a surreal sketch show taking a sideways glance at the lives of four friends, featuring a human python, the resurgence of bum-bags, and a talking third nipple called Reg. Featuring The Mighty Boosh’s Rich Fulcher, it is produced by Matt Stronge, directed by John Hopkins and executive produced by Stephen McCrum.


Dawson Bros Funtime is a sketch show from Steve and Andrew Dawson and Tim Inman, with an exciting new cast pulled together from YouTube and the live comedy circuit, including Mike Wozniak, Cariad Lloyd, Jenny Bede and Chris Kendall. The first sketch from the show, Horse Ipad is already on YouTube, where it has notched up over 350,000 views. Dawson Bros Funtime has been produced by Will Saunders and executive produced by Jo Sargent.


Celebrity Bitchslap News is a spoof celebrity-gossip show that brings you the ‘real stories’ behind the headlines. Footage captured by members of the public on their camera phones, recorded on CCTV cameras and leaked by indiscreet staff, this is every celeb PR’s worst nightmare - all as imagined by BAFTA winner Alison Jackson.


People Just Do Nothing is a mockumentary that goes behind the microphone of Kurupt FM – the second most popular pirate radio station in West London, receiving up to eight texts per show and playing the finest in UK garage and drum ‘n’ bass. Co-founded by the MC Sniper and DJ Beats in 2002, the station has now built up a following of over a hundred people and has attracted the attention of the BBC who are making a documentary about the lives of those behind Kurupt FM.


The Tapeface Tapes is a show from the Edinburgh Comedy Award nominated mime act. The Boy, real name Sam Wills, performs in the pilot with his trademark tape over his mouth and brings his own special brand of surreal silent comedy to BBC Three.


The Imran Yusuf Show is a mix of stand-up and sketches starring Imran Yusuf, a rising star on the British comedy scene. With appearances on Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow and an Edinburgh Comedy Award nomination to his name, Imran now brings his unique views on life, dating and people talking in the cinema to life in his very own comedy special.
