Crackanory returns to Dave later this month, with just one narrator per episode and some of Britain’s best comedy actors bringing each story to life.
The new series, in partnership with Audible, will welcome Sheridan Smith, Dara O Briain, Doc Brown, Anna Friel, Mackenzie Crook, Miriam Margolyes, Bob Mortimer and Mel Giedroyc into the famous Crackanory chair.
To celebrate the brand new series, Doc Brown will host a live reading of his story ‘Devil’s Haircut’ at the Central London location on Sunday 29th January at 12pm. For more information on how to get tickets, please visit Dave.
Crackanory has seen success in recent years on Dave with the likes of Back to the Future star Christopher Lloyd, Taskmaster giant Greg Davies, late Star Wars legend Carrie Fisher and northern funny woman Sarah Millican each taking their turn to sit in the famous chair. Series two also featured the much-missed comedy legend Rik Mayall in his final television appearance, reciting “The Weatherman“.
The critically-acclaimed show will return to UKTV from Monday to Thursday across two weeks, with eight new and original stories. Crackanory has won a coveted Broadcasting Press Guild Award and been nominated at the Monte Carlo Television Festival, Broadcast Awards and Broadcast Digital Awards.
Live action features throughout the series and stars previous Crackanory actors Steve Oram, Alex Kirk, Rebecca Humphries and Matthew Steer plus brilliant appearances from Ken Collard, Jamie Demetriou, Ritu Ayra and Nicholas Burns. The dark and twisted original stories spawn from some of Britain’s best comedy writers including Kevin Eldon, Tony Way, Nico Tatarowicz, Arnold Widdowson, Katherine Jakeways, Sarah Morgan and Toby Davies.
