Following its debut as a Comedy Short in 2020, the full series of critically-lauded BBC comedy sketch show Lazy Susan (4x15’) is set to premiere on BBC Three and BBC iPlayer in 2022.
The series has just finished shooting on location in Watford. Also released today is a first-look image and the supporting cast has been revealed from the forthcoming new series.
From the minds of writer-performer Freya Parker and Celeste Dring, Lazy Susan is a fresh and unique sketch show. Freya and Celeste (Lazy Susan) return with well-loved characters from the BBC Three pilot.
Expect smart commentary on our modern world and people falling over. Welcome to the world of Lazy Susan - as inviting as a warm bath, as unpredictable as a soufflé. Sketch comedy with heart, soul and just the right amount of weird.
The supporting cast of the new series features a plethora of comedy talent including James Acaster, Lou Sanders, Kiell Smith- Bynoe, Jason Forbes, Catherine Bohart, John Kearns, Evelyn Mok, Luke McQueen, Sunil Patel, Shivani Thussu, Ellie Kendrick, Rajiv Karia, Anna Leong Brophy, Laura White, and Phil Dunning.
Celeste Dring and Freya Parker of Lazy Susan say: “We couldn’t be more grateful to everyone who worked so hard on this show, especially our wildly talented director Molly Manners. Thank you BBC for the opportunity and the free car!”
Simon Wilson, Commissioning Editor at the BBC says: “Freya and Celeste’s unforgettable array of characters are beautifully written and utterly hilarious. We can’t wait for the new series to bring BBC Three viewers a host of brilliant new creations alongside old favourites.”
A transmission date will be announced in due course.
