Top hosts front Friday Night Project

David Tennant, Billie Piper, David Walliams, Mel C, Sharon Osbourne, Rupert Everett, Joanna Lumley, Christian Slater -just some of the guest hosts you’ll see on Friday Night Project which starts next week on UKTV.

The “Tonight” style show allows guests to take the host chair while comedians Allan Carr and Justin Lee play sidekicks. Both Carr and Lee have contrasting styles of humor, one’s a bloke and one’s definitely not!

Airing in the UK on Channel 4 it is described as “part sketch, part stand up, part chat, part game show, part hidden camera, part audience participation, part performance.”

A full line-up of who’s hosting when is below:

Press Release:

We’re turning every night into a Friday night on UKTV from 2 January 2008 with the hilarious, high-energy and phenomenally popular Friday Night Project.

With the co-hosts hailed as the future of British comedy, Justin Lee (a large, hairy, affable Cornishman) and Alan Carr (a bespectacled, high camp Mancunian with a sharp dress sense and an even sharper tongue) team up for half an hour of good humoured mayhem fronted by a different celebrity guest every night. And the celebrities are queuing up around the block to be on it – Rob Lowe, Mischa Barton, David Walliams, Jamie Oliver, Joanna Lumley, Sharon Osbourne, Jerry Springer, Rupert Everett and Paula Abdul to name but a few.

Part sketch, part stand up, part chat, part game show, part hidden camera, part audience participation, part performance – all the ingredients for a fabulous Friday night in front of the television – except now you can do it every night!

  1. Love how David Tennant is now “top of the list” of importance here … absolutely right too … he is phenomenal and will definitely not be typecast by Doctor Who … it is a stepping stone to a stellar career for him. He deserves every possible success!!

  2. i remember watching the episode that mischa barton hosted when i was in england last year. i thought it was pretty good and really wanted the show to air here. and finally its happening.
