BRAIN REACTION: RICHARD HAMMOND TO FRONT COMEDY CENTRAL PANEL SHOW

Comedy Central UK has announced brand-new comedy science panel series Richard Hammond’s Brain Reaction. The 6x60' series will be hosted by Richard Hammond along with his brainy side-kick, Comedian Ria Lina.



Each week, a team of comics and celebrities led by team captains Johnny Vegas and Victoria Coren Mitchell will battle it out trying to make sense of the world through brilliantly bizarre conundrums.

Richard Hammond said: "Pop science is my absolute sweet spot in TV. I love shows that blend funny with facts and can’t wait to get going with this one."


Filming began at Pinewood Studios in February and the series is expected to transmit on Comedy Central UK later on in 2022.
