Andrew Mickel18 June 2012
Comedy acting hero Kevin Eldon has landed his own show on BBC Two.
It’s Kevin will be written by and star Eldon.
The show will bring together sketches, songs, characters and guests, and will also call on Eldon's sizeable number of comedy friends.
Trailed sketches include the Incredible Moose Human, The Great Spagboletti, A Fictional Northern Man, John Lennon’s Head, The Perspective Twins, and Wendy Wilson’s White Coat Window On The World Of World Wide Wonders.
The six episodes will air early next year.
The show was commissioned by Janice Hadlow, BBC Two controller, and Cheryl Taylor, controller for BBC Comedy commissioning. It will be produced by BBC In-house comedy.
Cheryl Taylor said: “Kevin Eldon is a very special comedian indeed and we’re delighted to have the opportunity to showcase his many talents on BBC Two.”
Kevin said: "I have always liked chaffinches. The money I may receive from this show may well allow me buy more pictures of chaffinches."
