Patrick Kielty to front C4 stand-up comedy show

Patrick Kielty is to host a new post-pub stand-up show for Channel 4 as a satirical reaction to the week’s news.

Stand Up For The Week will feature regular guests such as Rich Hall and Kevin Bridges when the six-part series is screened on Fridays at 11pm.

Channel 4 said it will be ‘intelligent, spiky and, above all, outrageously alternative’.

The shows will be filmed at the KoKo club in Camden, north London, in front of a live audience which will also include celebrities and politicians.

Each week a topical public figure or guest will also be put on the spot.

Other regulars will be Jack Whitehall and Andi Osho.

Channel 4’s head of entertainment, Justin Gorman, said: “What better way to reflect on the week, than through the razor-sharp wit of some of the nation’s most talented stand-ups?

“Stand Up For The Week will be raucous and close to the bone.”
