The duo will pair up to host the new comedy show on Radio X which will air every Sunday from 8am – 11am, starting this Sunday 9th June.
The news comes following the departure of long-time Radio X hosts Elis James and John Robins to 5 Live.
Actor and comedian Matthew Crosby, who is also part of sketch group Pappy’s, says: “I’ve always wanted to know what 8am on a Sunday looks like, and what better place to find out than the studios of Radio X? I cannot wait for Ed and I to demonstrate the ‘3 Golden Cs’ of broadcasting: Chatting, Chuckling and Churning out the hits.”
Mock The Week star Ed Gamble adds: “Although I agreed to this under the misapprehension that it was 8pm and not 8am, I’m still very excited to start doing a show on Radio X with Matthew. Providing he doesn’t run with his stupid idea about the ‘3 Golden Cs’.”
Radio X’s Managing Editor Matt Deverson comments: “Ed Gamble and Matthew Crosby are renowned for their sharp, witty humour and it’s hugely exciting to bring these two exceptionally talented comedians together for a show which will become a true appointment to listen on Radio X. With the addition of Ed and Matthew’s brand new show, Radio X listeners can look forward to a superb comedy offering – as well as the biggest indie and rock tunes – on Sunday mornings with Danny Wallace also on the schedule. We’re thrilled to have them on the team as we carry on the X brand’s long-standing heritage in comedy on the radio.”
