BBC Scotland announces Limmy's return

Wednesday 21st March 2018, 4:02pm

  • Limmy is to return to the BBC for a new one-off comedy
  • The Scottish comic has “self-shot” a new sketch special
  • It will be broadcast on BBC Two Scotland early in April

The BBC has confirmed it will broadcast a single episode comedy special from Brian Limond, aka Limmy.

Limmy’s Homemade Show is described as having been “self-shot in his home and out and about in locations around his native Glasgow”.

It will be broadcast by BBC Two Scotland on Thursday 5th April at 10pm.

Producers say: “This one-off half hour treat is packed full of scenarios and observations which spring from his unique imagination. Punctuated by techno versions of familiar ditties, Limmy’s Homemade Show features scenes and musings which often seem to be rooted in the mundane – until the funnyman adds his own particular twists.”

The programme promises “dabblings in the spirit world”, “a vision of the future”, and Limmy attempting an “academic explanation of how comedy works”.

Scottish comic Limond was last seen on the BBC in a concluding Christmas special of his hit sketch show Limmy’s Show!, also on BBC Two Scotland, in December 2013. The cult hit series had run for three series since a 2009 pilot episode.
