Shane Allen, controller of BBC comedy, said: ‘Ali and Aatif are funny bones personalities who come up with really sharp ideas and observations that they characterise wonderfully. 

"This format plays to their strengths as prolific creators who knock out really grabby ideas, we’re proud to back them to wider exposure and appeal.’

Chris Sussman, Head of Comedy at BBC Studios, said, "BBC Three has been the launchpad for some of the country's best-loved comedians - and with Ali and Aatif, I think there's a real chance we might be adding a couple of names to an already long and impressive list. 

"They're great writers and even better performers, and we're delighted to have the chance to show them to the world in Muzlamic."

Muzlamic will be shown on BBC iPlayer, BBC One and BBC Three.
