Clips service

Byrne and Green to host Bravo shows

Ed Byrne and Jeff Green have been signed up to present clip shows on cable station Bravo.

Bryne will front 20 half-hour shows called Downloaded, based around the viral email campaigns and video clips doing the rounds on the Internet.

While Green presents yet another collection of advertising campaigns from around the world - The Ultimate Ad Show.

Both shows start next month.

They follow the success of John Thompson Stands Up for Comedy, a stand-up clips show that was the first comedy commission from the laddish TV channel last year.

Bravo's director of programmes Richard Woolfe said:  "This is an important area of the schedule and we are determined to offer the funniest and most eclectic shows that resonate with young men."
