Friday nights on ITV2 must be the place to be if you, like me, are called Katie. At 9pm is Katie and Peter: Unleashed, a talk show by celebrity marrieds Peter Andre and Katie Price/ Jordan which is followed by new comedy sketch show Katy Brand’s Big Ass Show. I’m new to the world of the other KB, but apparently she has been building up quite the comedy resume with work on Comedy Cuts, Tittybangbang and Peep Show. Now she’s been given her own show by those generous folk at ITV and she’s using it to spoof many celebrities including Kate Moss, Kate Winslet (so many Kates/ Katies!) and Lily Allen (who, as we all know, is sadly for her, not called Katie.)
Turning your one-woman antics into a full comedy show can be a make-or-break moment for many, but Katy is supported by IT Crowd actress Katherine Parkinson (I wonder if she calls herself Katy!) in her attempts to crack the big time. Having watched a number of teaser clips on YouTube, I have to admit it’s not tickled my funny bone, but I’m not one to turn my back on a fellow Katy and wish her all the best for the show. Catch one of the sketches below to see if you’re going to be staying in for the Big Ass Show on Friday night.
