LOCO teams up with Comedy Central to bring fresh talent to fresh audiences.
Comedy Central is the only UK channel dedicated to comedy for 16-34 year olds, with a wide range of shows featuring established and new talent. Highlights include new UK commissions, such as Drunk History and Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central, through to top US shows such as Inside Amy Schumer, Broad City, South Park and of course, Friends. They are also the UK home of stand up, showing more than any other UK channel, which continues with their upcoming ‘Summer Of Stand Up’ with classic and new shows.
Comedy Central will make more UK original shows than ever before over the next year and beyond, with a variety of TV pilots and new series in development. So as a leading supporter of new and established UK comedy talent, with shows that feature many LOCO favourites including Isy Suttie, Tony Law and Josie Long, they are the perfect partner for LOCO.
With so much great comedy living online, Comedy Central will be helping LOCO to spread the freshest short-form British comedy talent far and wide with a special online channel: ‘CC Presents: The Best of The LOCO Comedy Film Festival’.
You’ll be able to watch the LOCO trailer alongside films from LOCO filmmakers for six weeks from mid-March to the beginning of May, on ComedyCentral.co.uk, Snapchat, and via Facebook and Twitter.
We’re thrilled to be bringing new British comedy film-makers to Comedy Central’s audience of more than seven million. So go discover, laugh and share.
