Radio 4 pilots an East Asian sketch show

With Nigel Ng, Evelyn Mok and Ken Cheng

Radio 4 is to pilot a new sketch show from a team of East Asian comedians.

Nigel Ng, Evelyn Mok and Ken Cheng will star in the half-hour programme, Drop The Dead Panda.

The half-hour programme will be recorded next spring and be broadcast in an 11pm slot.

Mok said: ‘We’re so excited that Radio 4 are giving us the opportunity to write and perform in our own sketch show. We can't wait to offer insights into Asian culture and the humour found in our idiosyncrasies. 

‘Also, now we're working with the BBC, our parents might stop questioning our careers choices.;

According to the programme blurb, the show ‘will ask tough questions such as why is hot pot better than a relationship? What’s better, rice or pasta? and how do you come out as a creative to your East Asian parents?’

The producer is Adnan Ahmed for BBC Studios.
