Comedy Central renews The Chris Ramsey Show

This time with a topical bent

Comedy Central has ordered a second series of The Chris Ramsey Show.

And the run of ten half-hour episodes are to have a change of format, to put new focus on topical comedy.

Aimed at 16-34-year-olds, the new series will be filmed close to transmission when it launches early next tear.

Louise Holmes, vice-president of programming with Comedy Central UK,  said: ‘After the success of the first series of The Chris Ramsey Show, we are rightly upping the ante with the ambition of the second.

’It feels like the right time for us to give our audiences our take on a weekly must-see chat show, with funny at its heart. Chris is a brilliantly warm and generous host and we’re delighted to continue our journey with him and this show.’

Ramsey added: ‘Some of my best ever experiences were made during the first series and working with my team was an absolute pleasure, so I can’t wait to do it all over again, but this time bigger and better.’

The first series of The Chris Ramsey Show delivered strong ratings for the channel – 34 per cent than the average audience in its slot.

Comedy Central UK also recently announced a third series of Stand Up Central, also with Chris Ramsey at the helm,  which is set to air in the autumn.

The Chris Ramsey Show is made by Avalon, whose agency arm also represents the comedian.
