TV: Watch a preview of this week's Comedians Watching Football With Friends (Sky One).
Thanks to Sky’s unique relationship with the Premier League, this new Sky original production Comedians Watching Football With Friends sees comedians, and friends, watch two of the big televised weekend matches while they offer sofa-situated analysis and generally chew the fat.
Each game will be recorded in two sitting room style studios simultaneously, reflecting what’s going on in living rooms up and down the country; with a live audience of partisan fans oohing, ahhing and laughing along, while two comedians and one celebrity super-fan offer their thoughts on the game, or anything else, as the action unfolds.
Regulars on the series will include: Nish Kumar (Manchester United), Jon Richardson (Leeds United), Emily Dean (Arsenal), Tom Davis (West Ham United), Matt Forde (Nottingham Forest), Joe Wilkinson (Gillingham), Lee Mack (Blackburn Rovers), Josh Widdicombe (Plymouth Argyle), Adrian Chiles (West Bromwich Albion) and Iain Stirling (Liverpool).
