C4 renews Stand Up For The Week

...but without Patrick Kielty

Channel 4 has commissioned a second series of Stand Up For The Week.

Another ten episodes are to be made, starting this March, to air at 10.30pm on Fridays.

And Kevin Bridges – a regular on the last series – has been promoted to host, replacing previous frontman Patrick Kielty.

Jack Whitehall, Rich Hall and Andi Osho will all return as regulars, with Jon Richardson joining the line-up.

As before, the show will be filmed at the Koko club in Camden, North London, and feature a guest star each week.

Bridges said: ‘I'm chuffed to be back for a second series of Stand Up For The Week and I'm excited to be hosting the show this time.

‘It’s a brilliant line up and hopefully we can capture everything that makes a comedy club gig work and bring it to Friday night TV.’

Stand Up For The Week is made by Open Mike – the company behind Live At The Apollo and Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, and sister company to agents Off The Kerb, which represents Bridges, Hall and Richardson.
