This season of comedy shows starts on Channel 4 on 16th August.

There's certainly a lot of new shows on, a list of which can be seen here. There are other shows too - there's another Alan Carr's Summertime Specstacular, and the TV debut of Peter Kay's Tour That Didn't Tour - Tour and their online Comedy Blaps.

Also there are several late-night repeats. Shows mentioned so far include Green Wing, Brass Eye, The Comic Strip Presents and obscure Vic and Bob sitcom pilot The Weekenders.

Any news on whether Toast Of London has been picked up? I thought this was easily the best of the pilots that I saw.
