A new comedy showcase series hosted by Jonathan Ross has been commissioned by ITV.
In light of comedy venues shutting their doors during the pandemic, Jonathan Ross’ Comedy Club will recreate the vibes of our beloved small comedy clubs while continuing to showcase the best up-and-coming talent.
Four acts will perform each night under the watchful eye of comedy and broadcasting legend Jonathan Ross. While more familiar faces will have the opportunity to try out new material, the series will also offer a stage for new comedians on the cusp of their big break.
Ross commented: “The excitement and joy in seeing a new face come out and deliver memorable comedy is a wonderful feeling, and we want to make sure as many people as possible get to experience it.
“There’s so much incredible comedy talent around at the moment with all too few opportunities to do what they do best. I’m very much looking forward to giving these acts the exposure they deserve, having a good laugh and finally leaving my front room.”
Jonathan Ross’ Comedy Club will air on ITV later this year.
