SOUTH Tyneside funnyman Chris Ramsey could be set to land his own TV show.

The 28-year-old comic, from Marsden, South Shields, is piloting a show with Channel 4.

The programme, dubbed Chris Ramsey’s Too Much Information, will be a unique take on the big mainstream pop culture stories, with the studio audience taking part in their own social media challenges.

It will also see the comic delve into the headlines, trends and news from across the media spectrum including TV, news and online.

The pilot episode was commissioned by Channel 4’s Head of Formats, Dom Bird and is an Avalon Television production produced by Mark Iddon with Executive Producers Richard Allen-Turner and Jon Thoday.

Chris tweeted about his excitement, saying: “Great day in the office working on my TV show today. Getting proper excited about it now.”
