British Comedy Guide: Comedy stars line up for Channel 4’s 80s Night

Channel 4 has announced The Channel 4 80s Night, a strand of programming involving established formats being given a 1980s theme. The plan follows the success of previous programming blocks including Channel 4’s Mash Up and Channel 4’s Funny Fortnight.

Described as “a night of retro most definitely bodacious fun”, the main evening of shows will be broadcast on Friday 20th September, with additional programming over the next two days. Saturday 21st will see the channel screening classic films from the 1980s, then Sunday 22nd will see The Big Fat Quiz Of The 80s take over prime-time on the channel. The long-running panel format broadcast an 80s special last year as part of Channel 4’s 30th birthday celebrations, but this will be a brand new episode again. Jimmy Carr will resume his regular host role, with Jim Bowen, Kim Wilde, Tony Robinson and Toyah Willcox amongst those setting questions for the panel.
