Felix and Murdo

Comedy duo Ben Miller and Alexander Armstrong bring their brand new sitcom Felix and Murdo to Channel 4.

A one off, half hour, Christmas studio sitcom, written by Simon Nye, Felix and Murdo is set in Edwardian London of 1908 – the year the Olympics first came to London.

Murdo (Armstrong) and Felix (Miller) are ‘modern’ men and best friends who indulge in a drink and drugs spree while simultaneously competing in the Olympics… with no training whatsoever.

Armstrong and Miller said; ‘Hopefully the time is ripe for an Edwardian sitcom featuring excessive drug-taking, monkey twins, and competitive javelin. And if it isn’t, then we had a bloody good time making this show anyway.’

C4 comedy commissioner Nerys Evans said: ‘Felix and Murdo combines Ben and Alexander’s wonderful chemistry with Simon Nye’s fantastic writing. It’s a real treat for Christmas’.

The same evening features a ‘best of’ selection of the pair’s eponymous sketches taken from their last series seen on Channel 4.
