Details for 'The Tez O’Clock Show', a late-night satirical comedy show on Channel 4 have been announced.

Hosted by Blackburn comedian Tez Ilyas it is described as 'a topical mix of sketches and studio antics, including provocative monologues and celebrity interviews.'

Crashing into the studio show will be parodies, sketches and news bulletins from the Pakistani Broadcasting Corporation (PBC), starring Man Like Mobeen’s Guz Khan and comedian Sindhu Vee. The studio show sees Tez take part in a briefing room – just like the ones that happened when he worked at the Home Office - on the hot topics of the day.

Here, he’ll be briefed by his comics and Uncivil Servants, Sophie Willan and Adam Rowe, who will each try and sway him to their way of thinking. He’ll then be joined by his co-anchor Sindhu Vee on set 'shisha café'.

The show will be filmed each week at Manchester’s MediaCityUK in front of a live studio audience.

Tez Ilyas said: “OMA! This is proper surreal man. Thank you Channel 4 for this massive opportunity to follow in the footsteps of giants. Mama! We did it mama! "I‘m can’t wait for everyone to see it.. I hope y’all are ready for my silly, smart and subversive take on the world.

"Seriously though... you don’t understand! This is the show I’ve always dreamed of doing (after Blue Peter obvs).”

Ben Wicks, Creative Director, Comedy and Entertainment at Expectation said, “Tez Ilyas is an extremely smart, wonderfully playful satirical comic and we should all be hugely grateful C4 have given him a series. Had they not he might have returned to his old job at the Home Office where - given the strength of his jokes - he’d have done untold damage.

"He is flanked by the ludicrously talented Guz Khan, Sindhu Vee, Sophie Willan and Adam Rowe. They are collectively wrestling satire from rich white people in a show that oscillates from sharp to silly in a fast-paced comedic blitz.”

Karen Murdoch, Commissioning Editor, Entertainment, Channel 4 said: “Tez Ilyas is an incredibly exciting talent, and we are thrilled to have him on Channel 4.

With all the political shenanigans going on in the UK and the world in general, it feels particularly timely to be launching a brand new satire show, hosted by such a smart and fresh new voice.”

The series will air on Channel 4 every Thursday for three weeks from 25 July.
