C4 joins a new movement dedicated to eradicating testicular cancer
Channel 4 has joined forces with the recently created movement Check One Two that to date has proved to be an incredible success. They’re on a mission to get everyone ‘feeling nuts’ and help understand the risks of testicular cancer.
The recently commissioned comedy show ‘Feeling Nuts’ will be broadcast in October and hosted by Jack Whitehall and friends. Its set to be an evening full of surprise comedy pairings, some seriously awkward conversations and a host of challenges, whilst encouraging the nation to feel nuts.
Produced by Fulwell 73 and Attention Seekers, the 90’ show will be recorded in front of a live audience, many of whom have been involved in the social movement throughout the year. The event will take place at the Brooklyn Bowl within London’s 02.
Check One Two was created by two sets of brothers Simon and Andrew Salter and Simon and Phil Tucker. They launched the movement after hearing the story of one mother’s loss of her son to testicular cancer at the age of 19, due to embarrassment and lack of knowledge, and through Check One Two aim to empower men worldwide with the positive message about staying in regular check with their testicles.
The Check One Two campaign has already been seen up to 153,838, 967 times on Twitter and Instagram alone (data gathered by Brandwatch). Also a host of celebrities have joined the movement and are now spreading the message via the hastag #FEELINGNUTS.
Ricky Gervais joined the cause earlier this month by challenging Ben Stiller, Will Arnett and Aaron Paul to grab their crotches on Twitter.
Jonathan Rothery, Commissioning Editor, Music said; “The Check One Two campaign’s focus on awareness rather than fundraising is a smart USP, particular as testicular cancer is so treatable if caught early. Channel 4 are very much looking forward to joining the movement and Feeling Nuts in October.”
The show will air alongside Channel 4’s Stand Up to Cancer Season.
