After some of the funniest evenings in the London’s BFI one has ever experienced and a host of YouTube joy, Adam Buxton’s TV version of BUG takes to UK screens this July.
Airing on Sky Atlantic HD from 9.30pm, Monday 9th July, the show’s inaugural season will run eight episodes and include videos presented in Buxton’s inimitable, hilarious style from well-known award-winning high-budget directors, right through to young newcomers.
Describing the show, Buxton said: ”I tell people it’s like going round to a friend’s house and having them open their laptop and show you interesting and amusing things they’ve found or made, except not as tedious and shit as that sounds.”
Seriously, it’s neither tedious nor shit. Here’s a taste of what you can expect:
This, alongside Sky Atlantic‘s Alan Partridge: Welcome to the Places of My Life pick up, a new Kathy Burke show (Walking and Talking) and Armando Ianucci and HBO‘s Veep form the channel’s Comedy Mondays slot. A very strong showing indeed.
