Comedy panel shows are popular, as are puppets, and so new channel Dave (formerly UKTV G2) have gone and combined the two in their first commission for the recently re-branded station. ‘And Then You Die’ is the cheerily named show to be hosted by puppet Barrie Stardust, which like other fault-finding fests such as the Grumpy series, will look at the disappointments of modern life.
Over to Dave to explain: “Host Barrie Stardust is joined by a panel of star comedians. But Barrie is a host like no other… not least because he happens to be a puppet! Each round of the show is based on life’s terminal failures, disappointments and annoyances. But this is no gloom-fest… And Then You Die can always see the funny side of being miserable.”
