The Midnight Beast returns to E4 this evening, and once again, Simon Farnaby is in tow.
The first series of the cult hit based around the YouTube comedy rap sensations aired back in 2012, with TVO regular Ben Gregor (Blake’s Junction 7, Ant Muzak, The Wingnut Tapes) at the helm. Since then, Ben’s gone on to make his first movie, All Stars, and has been replaced by Screenwipe veteran Al Campbell (best known for his alter ego, Barry Shitpeas).
As ever with the Beast, the series will be accompanied by an album of songs from the show, Shtickheads, due out in March. You can see a preview trailer and the lead track below.
To promote the show, TMB have spoken to RWD Mag over yonder, whilst Farnaby – who plays hapless neighbour Sloman – appeared in today’s edition of Metro, in which he had very nice things to say about the other TMB in comedy.
The Midnight Beast Series 2 airs from 10pm tonight on E4, and will be available on 4oD soon after transmission.
