Comedy Central UK has greenlit a brand new comedy travelogue series with the working title The Comedy Bus. The show will feature six popular British comedians – Joel Dommett, Iain Stirling, Tom Allen, Suzi Ruffell, Darren Harriott and Kiri Pritchard-Mclean – on the road trip of a lifetime.

The six-part series is produced by Sacha Baron Cohen and Andrew Newman’s company Spelthorne Community Television, The Comedy Bus will be filmed in the UK this month and will air later in the year on Comedy Central UK.

It will follow the six comedians as they embark on a journey to each of their hometowns in search of what life is like there now. On what will be a literal trip of their lifetimes, each comedian will act as tour guide for the episode around their own hometown. 

“I absolutely love the idea behind this format. Everyone has a past – and a hometown – and now we get the chance to delve into the embarrassing secrets and fascinating insights of both from a comedy perspective. A fantastic range of comedians from around the UK are about to hit the road together on our Comedy Bus – forensically dissecting each other’s past lives as well as sharing every part of the journey along the way. This promises to be a comedic treat on every level,” commented Louise Holmes, Vice President, General Manager, Comedy Central UK. 

The announcement underlines Comedy Central UK’s ongoing push to diversify its British comedy offering and increase the volume of non-scripted comedy it broadcasts, all of which has helped to drive the channel to its current position of the #3 non-terrestrial entertainment channel in the UK for 16/34s. 

The Comedy Bus has been commissioned by Holmes and developed by Emma Clarke, Executive Producer, Comedy Central UK. It is being produced for Spelthorne by Exec Producers Tim Allsop and Matt Edmonds, Series Producer Ben Jessop and Series Director Mus Mustafa.

Wednesdays, 10pm from April 10. Comedy Central UK.
