|Syal to host new Asian comedy show
|The BBC is to make a four-part British Asian comedy series presented by Meera Syal.
Meera Syal’s Asian Comedy Story, for the Asian Network, will feature two documentaries, charting the genre from Goodness Gracious Me to mainstream stand-up stars, followed by a stand-up night to be broadcast in two parts.
That show will be recorded at the BBC Radio Theatre in Broadcasting House, Central London, on April 30 and feature Imran Yusuf, Shazia Mirza Kulvinder Ghir, Mickey Sharma, Asian Provocateurs, Humza Badman and Sami Shah
The shows will air over four consecutive nights in July as part of the digital radio station’s Stars On BBC Asian Network season, which channel controller Bob Shennan calls ‘our most ambitious, varied and exciting programming yet.’
