Local talent features strongly in a year of new TV comedy

 

THERE is plenty to watch out for on TV in 2013 and, not surprisingly, we’ll be seeing a lot of prolific performers John Bishop and Ricky Tomlinson.

John Bishop’s Only Joking is a new 10-part series on Sky One which kicks off on Friday January 11. It’s a stand-up comedy show that “deals unashamedly in jokes and nothing but jokes”.

John will be joined in the studio by a host of modern day and old school comedians, including Jason Manford, Andi Osho, Tom O’Connor, Katherine Ryan, Jason Byrne, Stewart Francis, Jimmy Cricket, Rob Rouse and Jason Cook.

Ricky Tomlinson will be seen playing a pub manager in ITV1’s new six-part comedy series Great Night Out, on our screens next week. Made by Hat Trick Productions, it focuses on four thirtysomething men who gather for a weekly night on the tiles in Stockport.

Ricky will also feature in three-part BBC3 zombie drama In The Flesh, alongside veteran actor Kenneth Cranham. Set in the fictional Northern village of Roarton, it stars newcomer Luke Newberry as Kieren Walker, a teenage zombie who is reabsorbed into society. Royle Family star Ricky will play one of the villagers at the centre of the drama.

Southport-born writer and producer Tony Jordan brought the curtain down on Hustle in 2012 but 2013 will see him bring a new drama to BBC1. By Any Means, a six-part series created by a team of writers led by Tony, follows a covert police department that, when the legal system fails, goes to any lengths to bring the criminal elite to justice.
