THE LATEISH SHOW WITH MO GILLIGAN TO END AFTER FOUR SERIES

Mo Gilligan has announced that his Channel 4 comedy chatshow The Lateish Show is to end this Christmas after four series.



The first series which aired in Summer 2019 featured games, sketches, music and chat with some of the biggest stars from the worlds of entertainment, music and sport including Tyson Fury, Riz Ahmed, Jada Pinkett Smith, David Schwimmer and Kelis.




Mo wrote in a statement: "After four incredible years, The Christmas episode of The Lateish Show with Mo Gilligan which, transmits at 10pm on Wednesday 20th December will be my last...


"I can’t even begin to describe how proud I am of this show. It genuinely changed my life and has created an industry-wide impact. It’s won numerous awards and achieved even more nominations, but it’s the army of people behind the scenes that made it happen who are so important. There are so many moments that I’ll always look back on with so much happiness...




"From that very first moment at Channel 4 where they took a chance on an ambitious young black creative who just couldn’t find a way into the industry. To endless creative meetings with all the team at Expectation who all worked so hard to try and make something with scale, joy and game changing ideas at its heart...



To every single production team member who worked relentlessly across all 4 series. The epic guests who gave it their all, week in and week out. To the outstanding Compozers and phenomenal MOcalists...


"All the excellent stand up comedians who performed on our Lateish Introduces platforms and the outstanding individuals who joined as crew for our game-changing Lateish Accelerator Programme. All the brilliant crew and staff at BBC Studios. My incredible team at my production company MOMO G who always push me in the best kind of way...



"To everyone at Channel 4 for continuing to support me over and over again and most importantly, the viewers - those who have watched us, shared the clips, taken part and supported us for so long. It’s been a huge privilege to bring people into my world every Friday night and just have fun.


Next year is a busy one for me but I’m beyond thankful for what has been achieved and I’ll never take lightly the opportunity that I was given. I promise to keep pushing for more of those opportunities for the next generation of young creatives. And to that next young Mo, who is just trying to catch a break…To them I say, keep going. Don’t give up. Everything is possible... The Lateish Show proves it."



The Lateish Show Christmas Special airs on Channel 4.
