Kicking off Saturday nights, David Tennant will host Comedy World Cup, a brand new series in which the funniest folk in comedy team up
for a new panel show. Across a seven-part series, teams of comedians will harness all of their comedy cunning to avoid being
knocked-out and be in with a chance to claim THE ultimate prize: The Comedy World Cup.
Host David Tennant, said: "As a big comedy geek I'm
looking forward to proving that I know more about it than the professionals!"
Justin Gorman, Head of C4 Entertainment said: "Needless
to say when we thought who could match, handle and wrangle some of the funniest and most talented comedians on TV, we decided
it had to be David Tennant so are thrilled he agreed."
Comedy World Cup was commissioned by Justin Gorman
and will be Executive Produced by Andrew Beint and Addison Cresswell. Production Company will be Open Mike.
Comedy World Cup kicks off on Saturday 15th September at 8pm.
