The 22 minute special, which will air on the channel on 26th August, features comedians performing their unique take on their favourite songs from classic musicals.
The TV show, produced by Burning Bright Productions, is based on the live show of the same name. Launched at Backyard Comedy Club in March 2017, it has since travelled to various festivals, including the Edinburgh Fringe. It returns to the Scottish festival this year on 21st August.
The Amusical shows see Adams and Pritchard-McLean encouraging comedian guests to take to the stage to perform. The guests often dress in a costume related to their chosen number. The music is performed by live band The Quavers, lead by format co-creator and producer Dave Cribb.
Speaking ahead of the recording, which took place at the Hackney Empire in September, Louise Holmes from Comedy Central said: “I fell in love with Amusical as a stage show at Edinburgh last year and am so thrilled that we’re able to bring it to the screen for the first time. With two of comedy’s most dazzling leading ladies, Kiri and Jayde, at the helm, plus a stellar line up of guest comedians brave enough to be taken out of their comfort zones as they sing their hearts out, Amusical promises to be a gloriously entertaining treat of a show.”
