The new late-night entertainment series follows a successful pilot earlier this year.
The six-part series will see Grime MC Big Narstie will flex his unique and captivating presenting technique in front of a live studio audience in a new 11pm series for Channel 4. Stand-up comedian Mo Gilligan AKA Mo the Comedian will join Narstie as co-host in the studio as they present a late night, alternative entertainment show.
In each episode Narstie and Mo will be joined by celebrity guests as they present original, straight-talking segments on the news of the week, TV, showbiz, trends, phone-ins, and food. It was announced earlier this month that Mo Gilligan will be making a non-TX pilot, Mo’s Town, for Channel 4 as part of the broadcaster’s commitment to bringing diverse and emerging talent to a nationwide audience.
In 2017 Big Narstie took part in two of Channel 4's most popular programmes for young audiences, Gogglebox: Celebrity Special for Stand Up To Cancer and The Big Fat Quiz of the Year 2017.
Commissioning Editor for Channel 4 Syeda Irtizaali says “I can safely say the pilot was like nothing else on television - mad, funny, anarchic and utterly distinctive - and I am delighted that we now get to spend quality time in the company of the indomitable and brilliant Big Narstie and the ridiculously talented Mo Gilligan. This series is going to be a real treat.”
Executive Producer Ben Wicks, says “Big Narstie - musician, titan of the internet and master-twister of the English language - let loose in his own anarchic late-night Channel 4 show, is the best thing to happen this year. We cannot wait to work with him, and his co-host - 2018’s hottest comedic talent - Mo Gilligan. You’ve never seen anything like it, unless you’ve watched Graham Norton on acid.”
