|Solo show from comedy veteran
|Kevin Eldon has landed his own BBC Two series, to be called It's Kevin.
The six-part series Itís Kevin will feature sketches, songs, characters, and guests, according to the BBC.
It is being made in-house at the BBC by the team behind Stewart Leeís Comedy Vehicle, and will air next year.
Eldon said: 'I have always liked chaffinches. The money I may receive from this show may well allow me buy more pictures of chaffinches.'
Cheryl Taylor, the BBC's controller of comedy commissioning, said: 'Kevin Eldon is a very special comedian indeed and weíre delighted to have the opportunity to showcase his many talents on BBC2.'
Eldon has appeared in pretty much every cult comedy hit of the past 20 years, including: Big Train, Brass Eye, Iím Alan Partridge, Smack The Pony, Nighty Night, Hot Fuzz, Stewart Leeís Comedy Vehicle and Four Lions Ė†but it was only in 2010 that he made his solo debut at the Edinburgh Fringe.
Sketches in the BBC Two show are said to include The Incredible Moose Human, A Fictional Northern Man, John Lennonís Head, The Perspective Twins, Wendy Wilsonís White Coat Window On The World Of World Wide Wonders, and performance poetry from his most enduring creation, Paul Hamilton.
