Daisy May Cooper and Yung Filly are among the comedians joining Sky’s new show Dating No Filter.
Rather than The comics go on dates themselves, the series will see them watch members of the public heading out on blind dates, providing a running commentary on the singletons’ search for love.
The eight-part series will see pairs of singletons sent on first dates, with quick-witted commentary from Daisy May Cooper, Joel Dommett, Josh Widdicombe, Tom Allen, Suzi Ruffell, Susan Wokoma, Tom Lucy, Rosie Jones, Judi Love, Chunkz and Yung Filly. The comedy duos will watch and weigh in on the dates, giving hysterically unfiltered observations on every awkward interaction and heart-warming moment. Activities trying to help the contestants break the ice will range from axe throwing and ballroom dancing to pole dancing and a visit to a goat farm.
Daisy May Cooper said: “I cannot tell you the amount of times Susie and I have been sat in Wetherspoons p***** on Pinot analysing other people’s cringey Tinder dates. Now we’re getting paid for it… honestly can’t believe it.”
Susan Wokoma commented: “Its absolutely criminal to call laughing at dates with my closest pal Daisy, work! I can’t wait for everyone to watch us crying with hysterics at the weird world of dating.”
Further comedians announced include Munya Chawawa, Donna Preston and Verona Rose.
Produced by Monkey, part of NBCUniversal International Studios, a division of Universal Studio Group, Dating No Filter was commissioned by Zai Bennett, Managing Director of Content at Sky and Phil Edgar Jones, Director of Sky Arts and Entertainment at Sky. The format originally aired on E! in the US. The UK version marks the second international adaptation of the format, following the Polish version, which is currently airing on Polsat Café.
The series will premiere on Sky One and NOW on 25th February.
