Transporting you from your couch right to the heart of one of London’s comedy hubs, this brand new exclusive series delivers rib-tickling stand-up from some of the funniest figures in the game. Whip-sharp political funnyman Ahir Shah and the award-winning Josie Long are among the luminaries on the line-up – though viewers here won’t want to miss the show dedicated to the Queen Of Ireland herself, Panti Bliss.

This hospital-based sitcom certainly knows its way to our funnybones! Mixing surreal daydreams with the drama of the patients and relationships within the walls of Sacred Heart, the journey follows JD, Elliot, Turk, Carla and the gang on their journey from fresh-faced interns to grizzled veterans – without ever letting the levels of comedy flatline!



Fridays at 10pm, on Comedy Central from January 12


Slowly but surely, the Belchers have taken their place at the top table of TV comedy families – and their latest run kicks off in idiosyncratic fashion, with illustrations from fans providing the inspiration for the first episode! Elsewhere, though, it’s business as usual – or as usual as it gets with this lot! – with competitive babysitting, a Thanksgiving with a difference, and an infatuation with inspirational posters make for another superb season.
