Comedy Central UK has re-commissioned Stand Up Central from Avalon for a fourth series with comedian, writer and actor Rob Delaney hosting the new series.
The new 8 x 30-minute series will begin filming in May at The Electric Ballroom in Camden. Each episode will feature stand-up from Rob Delaney, before he welcomes two guest comedians on stage to perform in front of a live audience. Previous series have included performances from Katherine Ryan, Al Murray, Russell Howard, Isy Suttie, James Acaster, Bridget Christie, Desiree Birch, Nish Kumar, Ellie Taylor, Jimmy Carr, Roisin Conaty, Lee Nelson, Sara Pascoe, and Chris Ramsey. The fourth series of the top-rating show will air later this year on Comedy Central UK.
Louise Holmes, General Manager, Comedy Central UK commented: “Rob has outstanding stand-up credentials and we are delighted to be home to his uniquely cool and charismatic brand of comedy. I’m thrilled to have him take the reins of the new series which promises to bring the very best stand-up to our comedy hungry audience.”
Rob Delaney said “I’m excited to be hosting a series for Comedy Central that will showcase a slew of great standups and is also walking distance from my house.”
Rob Aslett, Executive Producer at Avalon, added: “We’re delighted to be working with Comedy Central to bring more of the most exciting stand-ups out there to the channel and incredibly pleased to have the exceptionally talented Rob Delaney on board to host it.”
Comedy Central UK has been recently increasing its volume of non-scripted comedy airing Roast Battle and commissioning Talkback to produce a third and fourth series of noughties gameshow, Your Face or Mine and is currently airing the channel’s first ever topical chat show, The Chris Ramsey Show, also produced by Avalon.
