Blindboy bags a BBC Three series

Taking on the bad guys following a pilot last year

BBC Three is to air a new series from Rubberbandits star Blindboy Boatclub following the success of a pilot last year.

Blindboy Undestroys The World will feature polemicist and comedian – known for wears a plastic bag on and his head on stage – taking on work and money, social media, anxiety and modern slavery.

It promises to mix undercover reporting with comedy, commentary, pranks and analysis as it exposes crooks from the small scale to multinationals gaming the system.

Kate Phillips, the controller of BBC entertainment, said: ‘In this unique programme, Blindboy pushes the boundaries on ways entertainment shows can tackle serious topical issues which really matter to young people. 

‘Following his pilot on the housing crisis he’ll be tackling subjects such as human trafficking through to scam celebrity endorsements. It’s a funny, important show and not to be missed."

The pilot is available here.
