Tonight I went to see the pilot of 10 O’Clock Live, a new live comedy and current affairs show hosted by David Mitchell, Jimmy Carr, Charlie Brooker and Lauren Laverne. Myself and Jopkins are doing some social stuff around the programme and it was interesting to meet some of the other people working on it too. And it was fucking funny – a bit wobbly perhaps being one of the first times they’ve done it live (this was the second pilot) but nothing a series of 15 episodes wont settle. David Mitchell was stand out, and Jimmy Carr’s seal laugh (which always makes me happy) was out in full force.
They did a bit of social media integration on the show, featuring a facebook poll from the fanpage. I really hope there will be more as the show progresses.
See the trailer for the show here and catch the first episode next Thursday 20th January at 10pm.
