Queen Of Comedy Back On The Airwaves

BRITISH STAND-UP comedian Angie Le Mar has joined Premier Gospel with a second series of one-hour evening shows.

The Angie Le Mar Show promsies to be a humorous topical discussion broadcast every Friday from 7pm.

The programme will also be available online for viewers to enjoy after the show has aired.

Throughout the series, the comic, actor and writer will talk about pressing issues in her life, early church memories and will take us back with her archive of well loved Gospel classics.

The star will be joined by the acclaimed gospel music journalist Marcia Dixon and celebrity friends from the world of entertainment including actors Kwame Kwei Ahmah, Treva Etienne, Apprentice winner Tim Campbell and Bazil Meade, leader of London Community Gospel Choir.

Dubbed The Queen of Black Comedy following her appearances on BBC TV’s ‘The Real McCoy’, Le Mar has also appeared on top TV comedy and chat shows including Channel 4’s Get up – Stand up and ITV’s Loose Women.

A regular headliner at comedy clubs Up the Creek, Jongleurs and the Comedy Store, the funnywoman also had a sell-out one-woman show at London’s Apollo Theatre.

“We are delighted to welcome Angie to Premier Gospel after the successful launch of her first series and it’s a show which is both funny and informative,” station director Muyiwa Olarewaju said.

“Angie is a great comedian who will undoubtedly bring a touch of humour to a light-hearted chat-show format.”

Premier Gospel broadcasts on DAB across London and Surrey, via the free Premier app and online at premiergospel.org.uk, with a listen again facility for 30 days following broadcast.
