Alan Carr: The new Rigsby?

He's writing a new sitcom for himself

Alan Carr is writing himself a sitcom to star in.

The Chatty Man host says he is ‘huge fan’ of the genre, and has been making himself laugh while working on the new scripts. 

He told the Daily Star: 'I’m writing a sitcommy thing. I’m not saying too much because you might not think it’s funny but I am laughing out loud all the time.

'Let’s see what happens. I do like writing jokes. I don’t see why I shouldn’t write a sitcom. I’m a huge fan of them.'

Carr says he has been inspired by Rising Damp, adding: ‘I’d like to be a Rigsby character. I’d love to be the lusty landlord with a tenant underneath me. In fact, I’d love quite a few nice-looking tenants beneath me actually!'
