LGBTQ+ television and streaming service, OUTtv, has announced its first original UK commissions.
Unscripted interactive comedy series Rosie Runs Riot is produced by Tuck Shop and stand-up comedy series Live at the Queer Comedy Club is made by Milli Productions. The series will both launch on OUTtv globally later this year, and simultaneously on its UK channel Froot.tv.
Rosie Runs Riot (6 x 15’) is a brand-new bite-sized show from internationally not-recognised-by-anyone drag queen Rosie Beaver. Join Rosie as she pounds the pavements of London, making new friends, playing games and causing havoc in this hectic, irreverent show. Each week Rosie engages the general public about, well, about whatever is on her brain. Its wacky, it’s weird, and it’ll probably confuse the hell out of you! Rosie is also thrilled to be joined by special guests from the London Drag Scene for some episodes including Miss Moppe, LoUis CYfer and Richard Energy.
Live at The Queer Comedy Club (6×22’) is a stand-up comedy series featuring a selection of comedians performing live at The Queer Comedy Club in North London. Each show will feature one of the founders of The Queer Comedy Club as MC and two special guest performers picked from the club’s roster of amazing LGBTQ+ talent. Showcasing a range and diversity of stand-up comedians like no other show, it promises to offer LGBTQ+ people the relatable content they deserve from the UK’s first queer comedy club.
Philip Webb, COO of OUTtv said: “Comedy is such a rich, expressive genre, and we are excited to have two completely different shows which speak to the queer experience as our first ever UK commissions. There is such a wealth of talent on the LGBTQ+ comedy scene and we are proud to be broadening the spectrum of creative voices we are able to showcase on OUTtv through these two original titles.”
