The bridesmaid becomes the bride as Kevin Eldon gets his own show

Advertising

March 2013, BBC2
The racist businessman in ‘I’m Alan Partridge!’. The cuckolded husband in ‘Nighty Night’. False Rod Hull in ‘Fist of Fun’. We could go on. Kevin Eldon has made a fine career out of memorable cameos and bit parts, while carving out a sideline in deeply eccentric, brilliantly funny stand-up. But finally, the bridesmaid becomes the bride: the man gets his own show in which he’ll be calling in a few favours from his comedy friends with a series of sketches, songs, characters and so on. We can’t wait.

If you love quirky British comedy, watch out for...

‘This is Jinsy’ - (Sky Atlantic, June 2013)<br>A second series of unclassifiable, star-studded oddness (Stephen Fry, Eileen Atkins and Greg Davies have signed up this year)

‘Our Men’ - (BBC2)<br>Ambassador Mitchell and Deputy Head of Mission Webb represent the nation in their first self-penned sitcom

‘Inside No 9’ - (BBC2, late 2013)<br>Another anthology of dark humour and the everyday from the ‘Psychoville’ boys

‘Count Arthur Strong’ - (BBC2, spring 2013)<br>A fading light-ent star transfers from radio to TV in this Graham Linehan-penned programme
