Radio sitcom for Stephen K Amos

Co-written with Jonathan Harvey

Stephen K Amos is to star in his own radio sitcom, written Gimme, Gimme, Gimme creator Jonathan Harvey.

What Does The K Stand For? revolves around the comic’s young life, being ‘complicated by being black, gay and funny’.

He explained some of the same experiences in his 2012 autobiography, I Used To Say My Mother Was Shirley Bassey. The scripts have been written entirely by Harvey, based on the comic's stories and stand-up.

Amos will host each show, adding stand-up narration to the action – but no other casting has yet been released.

Four episodes are to be recorded in front of a studio audience this autumn - see our Free Tickets page to be among them.

Playwright Harvey’s TV credits also include Beautiful Thing, Murder Most Horrid and Coronation Street .

The series is scheduled to air from Wednesday November 27 and will include a festive Christmas Day special.

Radio 4 have also just recommissioned Amos’s stand-up series, Life: An Idiot’s Guide for a third series.

And the K stands for Kehinde...
