The Jason Lewis Experience

Cheryl Taylor, Controller of BBC Comedy Commissioning today announced an exciting new pilot for BBC Three.

The Jason Lewis Experience is a 30-minute show which sees a mix of pre-recorded sketches featuring Jason’s take on a variety of famous people, and some of his own characters along with a musical finale.

Throughout the show Jason will parody the nuances of race and culture in everyday modern life, as well as looking in on the world of celebrity, whether it’s Jay-Z trying to deal with one of his with his 99 Problems or Tinchy Strider lamenting on the challenges of getting with the ladies when you’re a tiny pop star.

Fans of bbc.co.uk/comedy will be familiar with Jason’s sketches, as the site has been showcasing his work over the last few months, after discovering him on YouTube. Through the pilot they will be able to enjoy the return of characters such as Nanny Discipline, the kick ass granny, and Jay-Z, as well as a host of new additions including David Cameron, Prince Harry and Dizzee Rascal.

Cheryl Taylor, Controller of BBC Comedy Commissioning, said: “Jason is an incredibly talented young comedian, who has so far starred alongside some comedy veterans as well as building up a loyal online fan base for his own work. We are delighted to have commissioned a pilot featuring some of his best characters and look forward to a host of new ones.”

The show will be filmed in September and air later this year. The show was commissioned by Cheryl Taylor and Danny Cohen, Controller of BBC Three. It will be produced by Nana Hughes (Comedy Live Presents: Russell Brand, Friday Night Project) and the team behind hit comedy Miranda, executive produced by Jo Sargent (Miranda and Coming Of Age).

Jason has starred in various BBC comedy shows, such as Miranda and Bellamy’s People for BBC Two, Coming of Age for BBC Three, and will feature in the forthcoming series of Armstrong And Miller.
