New comedians recruited as Last Leg Correspondents

Spin-off series for All4

Some of Britain’s best up-and-coming comics have been recruited as ‘correspondents’ for the Last Leg in a new spin-off series.

Tez Ilyas, Richard Gadd and Ivo Graham are among those who will be sent around the UK ‘to find out what the hell is happening outside of the studio in the big bad world’.

The Last Leg: Correspondents has been commissioned for Channel 4’s on-demand service All 4.

Each episode will be introduced by one of the show’s regular hosts – Adam Hills, Josh Widdicombe or Alex Brooker. Then Channel 4 says: ‘Each correspondent will approach their report from their own unique perspective, [dealing] with the stories in amusing, inventive and borderline ludicrous ways.’

In the first instalment, due to launch on All 4 soon, British Muslim Ilyas sets out to determine how people get radicalised. He’s pictured on the left of the picture above out on assignment.
