The Jason Lewis Experience will see a mix of pre-recorded sketches featuring Jason's take on a variety of famous people, such as Jay Z trying to deal with one of his with his 99 Problems or Tinchy Strider lamenting on the challenges of getting with the ladies when you're a tiny pop star.

Through the pilot they will be able to enjoy the return of characters such as Nanny Discipline (the kick ass granny, as well as a host of new additions including David Cameron, Prince Harry and Dizzee Rascal.

Cheryl Taylor, Controller of BBC Comedy Commissioning, said: "Jason is an incredibly talented young comedian, who has so far starred alongside some comedy veterans as well as building up a loyal online fan base for his own work. We are delighted to have commissioned a pilot featuring some of his best characters and look forward to a host of new ones."

The show will be filmed in September and air later this year. Jason's next video for BBC Comedy will be on the site soon.

Good work Jason!
