About the BBC Three Comedy Feeds
BBC Three is proud to introduce its next installation of Comedy Feeds. The Comedy Feeds showcase emerging new talent by making their pilot shows available exclusively on BBC iPlayer.
Controller of BBC Three, Zai Bennett says “New British comedy is king on BBC Three. To ensure we keep finding the hits of the future we are showcasing our latest batch of eight Comedy Feed pilots on BBC iPlayer.”
Comedy Feeds are part of a BBC Comedy and BBC Academy initiative to develop the next generation of comedy talent, both on and off screen.
The Comedy Feeds got off to a roaring start in 2012 with the first set of pilots having already introduced some exceptional new talent to the UK comedy scene. Impractical Jokers and People Just Do Nothing have become BBC Three series. In addition, Nick Helm's Heavy Entertainment, one of the 2013 pilots, will soon appear as a series on BBC Three.
Shane Allen, Controller, Comedy Commissioning, says: “This wide range of shows and new talents cement BBC Three’s place as the key channel for emerging comedy stars. The Comedy Feeds show serious commitment to finding the next best voices and faces of British comedy.”
