Courtney Act to host world's first Dragazine show for Channel 4
Channel 4 has commissioned a brand new late-night entertainment show with drag superstar and reality sensation Courtney Act.
Dubbed the world’s first Dragazine show, where “everyone is welcome” the hour-long The Courtney Act Show (1 x 60’ w/t) will see the glamorous and fabulous pop culture icon author her own show featuring an array of celebrity guests, studio items and music numbers.
As passionate about Harry Styles as she is human rights, Courtney’s skill and sass will redefine late night television entertainment.
Sarah Lazenby, Channel 4 Commissioning Editor for Entertainment said, “Courtney has undeniable star quality. As entertaining as she is emotionally intelligent, as savvy as she is sassy, Courtney was born to perform. We are utterly delighted she has chosen to come to the Channel to host the world’s first Dragazine show.”
Courtney Act added, “This is my show and I say come on in, all you heroic misfits, those of you who are a bit chipped around the edges…I want to welcome you all. You bring the open minds and I’ll bring the open bar and we’ll meet in the middle for a gay old time!”
Ollie Brack from Monkey Kingdom said, “Courtney has a smart and sensitive take on the world, a super-quick wit, a killer voice and a wardrobe to match. We’re really excited to be working with her - now is the perfect time for her show and Channel 4 is the perfect home for it.”
The Courtney Act Show (w/t) was commissioned for Channel 4 by Sarah Lazenby, Commissioning Editor for Entertainment and Steve Handley Commissioning Editor for Entertainment. It is a Monkey Kingdom production and the Executive Producers are Ollie Brack and David Granger.
