Emily Atack spills all on her new ITV2 comedy show – watch a first look
Emily Atack has shared all on her upcoming ITV2 comedy series.
The Emily Atack Show will see the Inbetweeners actress and I’m A Celebrity star taking to the stage to perform stand up and present themed sketches.
The 6 part series will start on Wednesday, November 4 at 10PM on ITV2. Each episode covers a different theme, including Dating, Going Out, Friends, Family, Image and Adulting.
Each show topic will allow Emily to not only have real fun with her comedy but also explore her own life experiences and showcase her loveable, unfiltered self.
In the first episode of the new series, Emily will be looking at the perils and pitfalls of dating, offering some hilariously honest insights and anecdotal scenarios as she explores the many, many rituals that we all face when attempting the dating game.
Emily said of the show: “I want to create and write a sketch show that gives snap shots into the weird and hilarious world of everyday life as a young (ish) person.
“I can guarantee whatever age you are you will relate in some way! It’s a dream come true, since I was a child this is the kind of television I’ve wanted to make and be part of. I can’t quite believe it.”
She continued: “When I was very young I always wanted to do my own sketch show and I’d make characters up in my head. I think the series is a modern version of those traditional sketch shows that I used to watch. Seeing how a woman of my age navigates her way through life and all of these obvious topics that we’re faced with, like dating, families and friends and just having a good old laugh at my expense to see how I handle these situations.”
“I really want these sketches to be relatable. I really hope they are. I’ve watched the greats, like French and Saunders, Catherine Tate and all these incredible women.
“The difference with their sketches is that they have created so many incredible characters that have stood the test of time, I just hope I can do this too.”
She added: “Viewers will see in the episodes where I focus on my family, that I end up admitting quite a lot of things on stage in front of my poor parents! It’s taking a look at how we feel about things as women in general, so it’s not always just my personal experiences.
“I do have a problem with oversharing though, I want to reach out to people and say we’re all human beings and this is what we sometimes have to go through in life, whether it’s breakups or awkward moments with your family.
“I just really hope people identify with all these things.”
