Dave (previously UKTV G2) was launched in September 2007 on Freeview and it instantly became one of the most watched digital channels, thanks to a strong mix of British comedy scheduling and Top Gear repeats. Popular British comedy shows repeated on Dave include Bottom, HIGNFY, Would I Lie To You? and Mock The Week. The channel also commissions its own shows too. And Then You Die, its first production, was a disaster but subsequent programmes like Argumental and Dave's One Night Stand have been met with a better reaction. The channel is now bringing back Red Dwarf. Website
On Dave today
Series 6, Episode 3 - One Warm Prawn
The five comedians take a nostalgic trip to childhood as they are compelled to taste-test some mystery baby food, among other odd tasks. As usual, they are judged harshly by Taskmaster Greg Davies, who is aided by resident stats geek, Alex Horne. Plus, Russell Howard presents a nightmarish fairy tale and Liza Tarbuck introduces a plastic lizard to a cordless drill.
