Tittybangbang
The Italian Lady
 in Tittybangbang

Tittybangbang
Starts Tuesday 10 January on BBC THREE at 9.30pm


 

Introduction

 

"Disturbingly funny" Radio Times

"Promising, if wilfully repellent" FT

"Laughs galore" The Sun

"Very funny, very horrid" The Observer

"Not very funny" The Times

 

Outrageous new sketch show Tittybangbang polarised critical response on its first outing as a one-off programme in autumn 2005.

 

Now the almost all-female roster of brand-new comedy talent features in a debut six-part series to be screened from 10 January on BBC THREE.

 

This bizarre, manic and outrageous collection of women - including an exhibitionist cleaning lady ("don't look at me!"); Maxine Bendix the plastic slapper; a team of quivering darters; balding, frustrated bachelor Don Peacock; and naked needle-pointers - will be joined by an equally eclectic range of new characters: fighting OAP Mrs Baxter; Stella the market thief; and the dysfunctional Shut-Up Family.

 

Tittybangbang is performed by Lucy Montgomery and Debbie Chazen, with Lorraine Cheshire, Shelley Longworth, Velile Tshabalala, Katy Brand and Tony Way.

 

The pilot version of Tittybangbang, broadcast in September, achieved one of BBC THREE's highest ratings for a new comedy show - more than doubling the channel's average audience share.

 

Written by newcomer Jill Parker and produced by Lisa Clark, Tittybangbang is a Pett production for BBC THREE.

 

Tittybangbang is set to premiere on broadband via bbc.co.uk/bbcthree a week ahead of each episode's transmission, building on the successful multi-platform launch of BBC THREE comedies Man Stroke Woman, Nighty Night and The Mighty Boosh.

 

Broadband users will be able to watch the comedy on the BBC THREE website and catch up if they miss an episode, and all episodes will be available to view for up to seven days after transmission of the final programme in the six-part series.

 

Sneak preview clips will also be available to download on video-enabled mobile phones (by texting BANG to 81010 in the run-up to transmission) and to view on the BBC THREE website.

 

These trial services are part of a BBC project to explore the opportunities that new technologies offer.
