News: Last Leg Returns To Channel 4 – Line-Up Here

News: Last Leg Guests Tonight

The Last Leg returns this Friday for its 21st, yes, that's right, 21st series. Note the earlier kick off time this week of 9pm.

Adam Hills, Josh Widdicombe and Alex Brooker are all present and correct and the guests in the first episode are Edinburgh Comedy Award winner Rose Matafeo, Sue Perkins and comedian Munya Chawawa, who can be seen in the new Dane Baptiste BBC Three comedy, Bamous. Check out his bingo sketch.

Matafeo appears in the film Baby Done, which was executive produced by Taika Waititi. Matafeo plays Zoe, a tree surgeon who reacts to the news of her pregnancy by going into denial and trying to cram as much fun into her life as possible before everything changes, while her boyfriend just wants to settle down. 

Sue Perkins has a brilliant interview podcast, entitled An Hour Or So With...In the final epiode of the current series she interviews stand-up legend Hannah Gadsby. She has also interviewed the likes of Katherine Ryan, Ruby Wax, Emma Thompson and some rugby-playing Aussie bozo called Adam Hills. Listen here.

Last November Adam Hills was named as an Ambassador for the Rugby League World Cup 2021.

The Australian stand-up is also a rugby player himself, having turned out for the Warrington Wolves in the Physical Disability Rugby League. He is even hoping to play in next year's PDRL World Cup, but has to make the decision who to play for. He told the Guardian: “I’m Australian and of course I want to play for my country. But most of the guys playing for England are my mates. So I don’t know what to do. I was talking to {former England full-back} Shaun Briscoe about it. And he said: 'Well, it’s a very simple choice. Would you rather represent your country or win the World Cup?’”

The Last Leg, Fridays from January 15, C4, 9pm, tonight then probably back to its usual 10pm slot but check schedules closer to transmission so that you don't miss it.
