Comics line up for more of Sky's Little Crackers

Sky is to revive its series of Little Crackers short films, this time featuring such comedians as John Bishop, Alan Davies and Shappi Khorsandi.

It follows the success of the 12 short films released last Christmas, featuring the likes of Stephen Fry, Dawn French, Catherine Tate and Jo Brand reliving tales from their childhood.

This year, the theme will be ‘The First Time I...’. Other names signed up so far include Sanjeev Bhaskar and Jane Horrocks, with more to be announced nearer the time.

Sky’s head of comedy, Lucy Lumsden said: ‘Last year Little Crackers was a fantastic success for Sky 1 HD, bringing some of the biggest and best names in British comedy to the channel. But there were always more names that I wanted to be a part of the show, and I’m delighted to have secured such brilliant comedians for the second series.’

The new Little Crackers will be produced by independent comedy production companies including Baby Cow Productions, Sprout Pictures and Open Mike Productions.
