Comedian Russel Kane is to host a new 8 part comedy-entertainment show for BBC Three later this year. BBC Three has commissioned ‘Live At The Electric’ which will mix stand-up, sketch and musical comedy aimed at showcasing talent which are breaking through on the comedy circuit.

“Our ambition for Live At The Electric is to give emerging comedy talent a new home where they can really experiment with characters and comedy. We hope that this show will not only be an incubator for the stars of the future, but also a brilliantly funny watch in its own right – no pressure Russell…” – Zai Bennett, Controller of BBC Three

Russell Kane is co-presenter of ITV’s I’m A Celebrity spin-off show ‘…Get Me Out Of Here Now!’. The newly commissioned show will be produced Avalon Television.
