A new six-episode series of The Rob Brydon Show will be screened this summer on BBC2, the broadcaster has announced.
The programme will follow its usual format, filmed in front of a live studio audience, with guests from the world of comedy, music and entertainment. Once again, there will be a short comedic stint, before Rob offers the floor a chance to ask their own questions to interviewees, and takes to the stage to perform alongside his musical guests.
The show was first aired on BBC Two in September 2010. The past two series have featured a variety of guests, including James Corden, David Walliams, Stephen Fry, Bruce Forsyth and Matt Lucas. There have also been performances from Mark Ronson, Tom Jones and The Script, whilst up-and-coming comedic stars including Tom Deacon, Daniel Sloss and Elis James have been offered the stage to showcase their talents.
Rob Brydon said: “We already have some great guests lined up; I can’t wait to get started.”
Dan Baldwin, Managing Director of Talkback, who produce the show for the BBC, added: “Rob is a huge talent and we are delighted to be working with him once again on ‘The Rob Brydon Show’. I can safely say, whilst sitting here eating my generic breakfast cereal, that we’re delighted with this re-commission.”
