Scottish comics land series

Five Scottish-based comics have landed their own TV show.

Frankie Boyle, Bob Doolally, Craig Hill, Miles Jupp and Reverend Obidiah Steppenwolfe III for the regular team for The Live Floor Show.

Doolally, pictured, is a heavy-drinking football manager, the creation of comic Paul Sneddon, while the Steppenwolfe character is rambunctious Southern preacher.

Nine shows are to be made, each promising a big name guest comic and a band. They will be screened on BBC1 in Scotland.

Recording starts next month at the BBC studios in Glasgow. Check our free tickets page to be in the audience.
