Calm is an award-winning charity dedicating to tackling the rate of suicide among men and challenging a culture that prevents men from seeking help.

Titled ‘Be the mate you’d want’, the new campaign aims to highlight the significant power of small gestures towards friends going through a hard time.

During the campaign comedian James Acaster will voice positive mental health awareness promos, which will take over a four-minute commercial ad break. Next year the movement will also include a podcast and a commissioned comedy to support male friendship.

The three-part series is also written by Kayo alongside Phil Bowker (PhoneShop) and produced by Lovely Electricity, and will air next year on Dave.

Josh Widdicombe and James Acaster to host new panel show on Dave

Hosts James Acaster and Josh Widdicombe will challenge two teams of comedians to a series of absurd hypothetical scenarios, with even more ridiculous answers.

The comedians will be faced with questions such as 'You have to live in a motorway services for a year, how do you cope?', and, 'You have to take a selfie with Nicolas Cage within 48 hours or you die – how do you do it?'. 

Widdicombe will be question master, with Acaster there to throw the teams curveball rules and decide which team should be awarded for the best hypothetical outcomes.
