Spirit produced a brand new comedy show for ITV2 in early 2019 called The Stand Up Sketch Show . The show (6 x 30) that combines both stand-up and sketch. The show will come back with a second series in early 2020.
From established stand up routines by some of the nation’s best loved comedians, to brand new material from Britain’s most exciting up and coming talent.
Each sketch begins with a comedian telling their story on stage in front of a live audience, before shifting into a surreal reconstruction of the material. Using some of the circuit’s funniest material, the reconstructions feature visual jokes, supporting performances, ridiculous props and absolutely killer comedy.
In each of the sketches the comedian play the role they were born to play…themselves. Any dialogue in the routines is lip-synced by the comedians and comedy actors adding to the surreal tone of each scene.
With 8-10 sketches per episode, each one varies in length and is fast paced and funny with a ton of additional gags to make sure the laughs keep coming thick and fast.

Spirit worked with ITV Marketing to help market the series by working with the talent to promote the shows/sketches through social media.
Series 2 is announced for 2020:
