BBC orders new children's comedies School Bus and GiggleQuiz

CBBC has ordered new sitcom School Bus, and CBeebies will bring Gigglebiz spin-off GiggleQuiz to the screen.

British Comedy Guide, 3rd July 2018

Gigglebiz stars Justin Fletcher - Cbeebies colossus and veritable god to the preschool demographic - in his own sketch show. Fletcher's vast array of comic characters include the superhero Captain Adorable, Arthur Sleep the narcoleptic newscaster, Gail Force the weather forecaster and Packed Lunch Pete, who never gets to eat his sandwiches.

As you would imagine, slapstick features prominently and the humour isn't overly sophisticated, but Fletcher is a very likeable, versatile performer working with a script that is constantly inventive. I found it genuinely funny, and certainly more entertaining than the majority of BBC3's vast sketch show output.
