BBC in-house Comedy prides itself on working with the very best in comedy talent - established and new - both on and behind the screen, and is responsible for some of the county's most watched and loved comedies across radio, online and all four BBC TV channels. Recent successes include the Bafta-winning Mrs Brown’s Boys which achieved record AIs and huge audiences. The award-winning Miranda, now on BBC One and a second series of the Matt Lucas Awards has just finished playing on BBC One. Olympic comedy Twenty Twelve starring Hugh Bonneville and Jessica Hynes and written by John Morton played on BBC Two last year to great critical acclaim as did Armando Iannucci’s The Thick of It. A second series of Watson & Oliver is due to start on the channel this week. A second series of Citizen Khan is currently in pre-production for BBC One, written by and starring Adil Ray, and for BBC Two a new series of Stewart Lee’s Comedy Vehicle, and a second series of Pramface for BBC Three. Filming has just finished on James Corden's new comedy The Wrong Man’s for BBC Two, co-written by Mat Baynton.
Radio Comedy goes from strength to strength with stand-out shows such as Bleak Expectations which last year was adapted for a TV version - The Bleak Old Shop of Stuff, the ever popular Newsquiz and Miles Jupp's critically acclaimed In and Out of The Kitchen. The listening figures across the board are reaching new heights.
Online, in-house comedy continues to grow - the comedy website increasing its views by 350% in 18 months and a Bafta for the Psychoville website.
