Craig & Danny: Funny, Black and On TV – 13 October 2020 – 13/10/2020 – Tuesday – ITV

This new show features friends Craig Charles and Danny John-Jules celebrating 50 years of Black British comedy legends.

Part of ITV’s programming to mark Black History Month, this specially-commissioned documentaru explores the work of the greatest and sometimes forgotten Black comedy icons of our time.

Through a combination of nostalgic archive footage and star interviews, it profiles legends from the first breakout Black comic, Yorkshireman Charlie Williams, to today’s rising stars such as Michaela Coel, as well as genre-defining shows like Desmonds and The Real McCoy.

Others whose work features include the legendary Lenny Henry, Don Warrington in Rising Damp and Norman Beaton in Desmonds, alongside those from the new generation of comedy talent like BGT star Kojo and Stateside breakout Gina Yashere.

Craig and Danny, whose work in comedy stretches back more than 30 years to the start of Red Dwarf, also tell their own tales from their careers in showbiz.

This celebration of pioneering stars draws our focus from their work to the present day to offer an insight into the legacy of decades of comedy talent that has touched the new generation of Black comedians who are now shaping the future.

ITV is marking Black History Month with new shows and channel branding throughout October, celebrating the contribution of Black people to television, comedy, history and our wider culture in new programmes. The work of Black artists will feature as the channel’s on-air branding in a series of idents that will appear throughout the month.
