  • JOSH IS BACK FOR A THIRD SERIES ON BBC THREE THIS AUTUMN

    JOSH IS BACK FOR A THIRD SERIES ON BBC THREE THIS AUTUMN

    After a successful second series in 2016, hugely popular stand-up Josh Widdicombe returns for a third series of Josh.

    Written by Josh Widdicombe and Tom Craine, directed by David Schneider (I'm Alan Partridge and The Death Of Stalin) and produced by Simon Mayhew-Archer from BBC Studios (This Country), the will debut on BBC Three from Monday 2nd October at 10:00am with a BBC One repeat on Friday nights at 11:25pm.

    For Josh, the phrase 'nice guys finish last' doesn't quite cover it. He's the kind of guy who doesn’t realise the race has started, hits every hurdle on the way and then gets strangled by the finishing tape.

    This series follows his successes (not many) and his failures (loads) as he tries to navigate the race of life. Whether it's being dumped whilst dangling on a zip-line, tolerating an egomaniacal fellow comedian on tour or being blackmailed by a septuagenarian next-door neighbour, Josh always tries to do the right thing…and always comes off the loser.

    Trundling alongside Josh are his loyal flat-mates, Owen (Elis James) and Kate (Beattie Edmondson), closely followed by their remorselessly attentive landlord, Geoff (Jack Dee), a man so unaccustomed to normal social behaviour that he thinks nothing of moving a fully-grown swan into his house. Meanwhile, Owen, a man usually as relaxed as a sloth in a bubble bath, can’t help but 'do a Josh' and self-sabotage a burgeoning relationship with X Factor star, Diana Vickers. And then there's dear Kate, the only person who can take her mother (Jennifer Saunders) to the theatre and end up getting a police caution.

    Other cast members to appear throughout the series include; Jennifer Saunders (Kate's mum Judith), Diana Vickers (as herself), Scarlet Alice Johnson plus comedians Tom Allen, Ellie Taylor, Cariad Lloyd and Mike Bubbins.
