LGBTQ+ television and streaming service OUTtv announces its first original UK commissions, the unscripted interactive comedy series "Rosie Runs Riot" and stand-up comedy series "Live at the Queer Comedy Club" are joining the service. The series will both launch on OUTtv globally later this year, and simultaneously on its UK channel Froot.tv.
"Rosie Runs Riot" (6x15’) is a brand-new show from drag queen Rosie Beaver where each week she engages the general public about everything. Rosie is also thrilled to be joined by special guests from the London Drag Scene for some episodes, including Miss Moppe, LoUis CYfer and Richard Energy.
"Live at The Queer Comedy Club" (6x22’) is a stand-up comedy series featuring a selection of comedians performing live at The Queer Comedy Club in North London. Showcasing a range and diversity of stand-up comedians like no other show, it promises to offer LGBTQ+ people the relatable content they deserve from the UK’s first queer comedy club.
Philip Webb, COO of OUTtv said: “Comedy is such a rich, expressive genre, and we are excited to have two completely different shows which speak to the queer experience as our first ever UK commissions. There is such a wealth of talent on the LGBTQ+ comedy scene and we are proud to be broadening the spectrum of creative voices we are able to showcase on OUTtv through these two original titles.”
