I TALK The Warm Up Guy

With nothing to watch the other evening I opened the 4oD app on my iPad and clicked on the Comedy category to see if there was anything I hadn't watched yet.

In amongst established programmes such as Black Books, The IT Crowd, Pete vs Life, The Inbetweeners and Facejacker was something called Comedy Lab.


Comedy Lab is a project by Channel 4 of which I was previously unaware. What it offers is a platform for new Comedy talent and has helped to launch the careers of Ricky Gervais, Peter Kay, Russell Brand and Jimmy Carr as well as programmes like Fonejacker, Modern Toss.

I had a choice of watching Mr & Mrs Hotty Hott Hot Show or The Warm Up Guy.<
