The Comedy Bus (w/t) will follow six comedians as they travel to each of their hometowns to see how they have changed over the years.
Joining Dommett and Stirling for a trip down memory lane are Mock the Week regular Tom Allen, Suzi Ruffell, Darren Harriott and Kiri Pritchard-Mclean.
The series will be produced by Sacha Baron Cohen and Andrew Newman’s company Spelthorne Community Television
The duo’s warm and funny relationship is once again dissected for the third season of their travelling adventures.
Following the success of the pair’s USA Road Trip, the new 6-part season will see mother and son discover a world of Samurais in Japan, advanced technology in South Korea, and an island paradise in Thailand.
Their journey continues with a visit to a 5-star acting academy in Mumbai to learn what it takes to make it in Bollywood. The pair also attempt folkoric water puppetry in Vietnam and care for rescue elephants in Chiang Mai in Northern Thailand.
The revival will stay true to the original 80s and 90s format of the show, which aired on ITV, and sees students attempting to cross a hexagonal board for a chance to win an ‘experiential prize.’
Students and sixth formers will answer trivia questions correlating to a certain letter and be able to move forward onto the iconic Gold Run bonus round.
The first two series are set to be recorded early next year and will include two celebrity specials.
“I’m delighted to take over this classic quiz-show,” commented Dara O’Briain.
