An up-and-coming comic has landed a batch of TV work - after a chance encounter at a dinner party.
Danny James is to appear in a forthcoming Channel 4 hidden camera show after one of its producers showed up at his girlfriend's do.
The TV exec, a friend of a friend, got chatting to the young comic and asked for a tape - then called back a few days later to offer him work on the programme.
"It was pure chance," Danny told Chortle. "My girlfriend is Australian, and she had two friends over from back home - this guy was a friend of one of theirs."
Filming on the as-yet untitled programme, which uses hidden camera stunts to observe human reactions to extreme scenarios, started last week.
A commissioned pilot is being made by Radar, the company behind Banzai, with the rest of the series to follow
