The Brits Hilariously Invade Comedy Central

THE BRITS HILARIOUSLY INVADE COMEDY CENTRAL

THE INBETWEENERS, PLEBS, FRIDAY NIGHT DINNERAND ABSOLUTELY FINE TAKE OVER TUESDAY
NIGHTS ON COMEDY CENTRAL

GREAT BRITISH COMEDY PREMIERES TUESDAY MAY 9 FROM 9:10PM ON SKY CHANNEL 011

The home of laughs, Comedy Central, is dishing up four of the best British comedy shows all on one night.

Premiering on Tuesday May 9 from 9.10pm on Sky channel 011, Great British Comedycelebrates the best of British comedy with The Inbetweeners - from the beginning - and new premiere shows Friday Night Dinner, Plebs and Absolutely Fine.

It is difficult, awkward and often humiliating growing up, and The Inbetweeners captures it all as it follows four friends and their antics during their final years of school.

After its hugely successful first series on Comedy Central, Plebs returns for a second session following three desperate young men from the suburbs as they try to get laid, hold down jobs and climb the social ladder in the big city - a city that happens to be Ancient Rome.

New to Comedy Central, Simon Bird (Will McKenzie in The Inbetweeners) and Tom Rosenthal (Marcus in Plebs) join together in Friday Night Dinner, a comedy that centres on two siblings that share their Friday night dinners at their parents home and, somehow, something always goes wrong.

Rounding out Great British Comedy is the new Comedy Central short form seriesAbsolutely Fine. Each four-minute episode follows British comedian and star of Plebs andFriday Night Dinner, Tom Rosenthal, on all his awkward run-ins with everything from Uber Drivers to amorous pensioners chatting up his girlfriend.

Grab your baked beans on toast, kick off your jandals and enjoy the laughs of Great British Comedy.
