The nation’s funniest MC is finally getting his own TV show. Channel 4 have commissioned a brand new late-night entertainment series featuring Big Narstie.
The Big Narstie Show will see the BDL boss team up with internet star Mo Gilligan AKA Mo the Comedian. Billed as a late-night alternative entertainment show, each episode will see Narsie joined by celebrity guests as he gives his unique straight-talking take on the news of the week, TV, showbiz gossip, trends, phone-ins and food.
Narstie made his debut on Channel 4 last year featuring on both Gogglebox and The Big Fat Quiz of the Year. He stole the show on both occasions and it wasn’t long before Channel 4 snapped him up to make a pilot. Commissioning Editor Syeda Irtizaali called the pilot; “like nothing else on television – mad, funny, anarchic and utterly distinctive.
Ahead of the show both Narstie and Mo took to Twitter to request fans with “hilarious embarrassing stories that they are willing to share” get in touch. Could an aspect of the show feature Narstie reprise his beloved Uncle Pain role in which saw him dole out relationship advice on YouTube?
Filming will take place from next week at Television Centre, White City, London. If you want to be in the audience you can apply here.
