Elevenish is a new, quick thinking ITV 2 comic and sketch show. Written & performed by a cast of stand-up comedians the series offers a new take on the week’s topical events.
Funny man Bobby Mair, one of the comedians involved in brand new show, spoke exclusively to Reality Box about the late night fix, the weirdest thing he’s done as part of it and what a week in the life is really like.
Answering what makes the show so different, Bobby began: “It’s a show where the comedians have a lot of freedom to get their ideas onto TV with a really quick turn around. For better or worse, that’s pretty cool.”
With Elevenish being filmed so close to transmission, a day in the life of Bobby is pretty hectic.
“The shooting schedule is different for every comedian as we’re not all in all day every day. On Saturdays and Sundays I dread all the work I’ve done the previous week.”
“On Mondays with the others I film the Writer’s Room sketches. On Tuesdays I write usually for a sketch I will film Fridays. And on Wednesdays and Thursdays I return to the self doubt and dread of Saturdays and Sundays.”
The show also offers a wacky take on the week’s topical events, but in a pretty odd way.
“In the first episode I breast fed an adult man. I haven’t topped it yet.”
When he’s not tuned into Elevenish or running around writing scripts for the show, Bobby is also a fan of a BBC One drama. “I just finished watching Happy Valley. Oh God.”
“Tune in this Thursday because if you don’t I will never recover emotionally.”
Elevenish airs Thursday nights at, well… Elevenish on ITV2.
