The BBC say: “We’ll meet a huge range of comic creations including thwarted Nigerian philanthropist Prince Alyusi, Croydon’s leading voodoo doctor Professor Lofuko, misunderstood superhero Eclispe, never-satiated chicken-loving schoolboy Fat Sam and over-amorous daytime TV hosts/lovers, William and Funke.
“Along the way we’ll also learn some newly-unearthed Black British History with garage MC Scribbler P, get a sneak peak of the latest Nollywood blockbusters, and at last see some much-needed cultural diversity injected into Midsomer Murders.”
Shane Allen, Controller, Comedy Commissioning, says: “This exciting ensemble of comedy talent delivers their fresh and funny take on the multi-cultural Britain of today. Although sketch shows will forever be reviewed as ‘hit and miss’, they are a vital and crucial way to bring through the next wave of comedy stars and in Famalam we’ve got a supremely funny troupe.”
Damian Kavanagh, Controller of BBC Three, adds: “I’m really pleased that Famalam is coming to BBC Three. It’s a great new take on the sketch show featuring fresh, new comedy voices and an array of brilliant new characters that I know our audience will love.”
Akemnji Ndifornyen the show’s prodcuer, says: “I can’t wait to unleash this amazing show on you all! Credit to our cast, crew and brilliant director, Mr Tom Marshall. Get your knives and forks ready for a comedy feast, Famalam.”
