DARREN HARRIOTT AND JOSH JONES FRONT DAVE'S NEW PODCAST HARD SELL
FEATURING GUESTS JOEL DOMMETT, JOSH PUGH, HELEN BAUER AND MORE, ALL TEN EPISODES ARE AVAILABLE TO DOWNLOAD NOW
Thursday 10th November: UKTV announces today a new comedy podcast for Dave, launching on main podcast platforms via the Acast network. Hard Sell is hosted by Darren Harriott and Josh Jones and launches today. All ten episodes are available to download now.
Hard Sell is a brand-new podcast that sees award-winning comedians Darren Harriott and Josh Jones travel around the country to visit the homes of different comedians. After noseying around their houses and exposing their spending habits, Darren and Josh each take a pre-loved item to sell for charity, competing to see who can fetch the most at market.
Given just one week to sell their guest's possessions, Darren and Josh will have to be creative in their hustling, before being reunited with their guest to reveal how much money they have, or haven't, raised. Guests include Joel Dommett, Helen Bauer, Ray Badran, Stephen Bailey, Kemah Bob, Ivo Graham, Dan Tiernan, Josh Pugh, Ria Lina and Matthew Crosby.
Darren Harriott said,
It's the love child of Cash In the Attic, Antiques Road Show and Through the Keyhole all wrapped into one brilliant podcast. We get to have good rummage around and any judgy bitchiness will be offset by raising money for a great cause. (What's the cause again?)
Josh Jones added
This podcast is so much fun and we get to raise money for a great cause. But the best thing is sneaking around celebrities' houses having a nosey through their stuff - I love it! I also had a secret poo in one of the houses, so listen to the podcast to try and hear shame in my voice and figure out which house I left my dignity behind in!
The podcast has been commissioned for UKTV by Mark Iddon, commissioning editor, and ordered by Cherie Cunningham, Dave channel director and Erina Jones, UKTV's head of social. Richard Watsham is UKTV's chief creative officer and Steve North is UKTV's chief programming officer.
Hard Sell is a BBC Studios Production for UKTV
Hosts: Darren Harriott and Josh Jones Producers: Gwyn Rhys Davies and Sasha Bobak Executive Producer: Pete Strauss
Mark Iddon said "I think we're all secretly nosey and want to know what junk other people have in their home, but only Darren and Josh are blunt enough to actually go through it!" ? Cherie Cunningham said, "Hard Sell is another hilarious and unique addition to Dave's growing library of podcasts. Darren and Josh are brilliant hosts and I think listeners will really enjoy getting to know each of the show's guests in the sort of detail that only a rummage through their houses can provide."
