The Island



Tom Allen


Kemah Bob and Jason Forbes (reporters)


Super Best Quality Video Productions for Dave, 23 March to 11 May 2022 (8 episodes in 1 series)


UKTV's press office tells us:

Across the entire series, four comics will compete to make their own personal dream desert island the best one. Each week, Allen will put these four islands, and their leaders to the test - who's got the best house band? How do you even judge that? And you may think you want your island's only drink to be Fanta Limon, but what happens when it attracts that swarm of angry bees you chose last week? Well, Kemah Bob and Jason Forbes will be on hand as they bring 'live' reports from the islands, to make sure nothing is missed.

Key moments

Tom's abject, epic, and total failure to play the xylophone correctly even once in eight episodes.

Kemah Bob's, er, description of what happens to her at a Magic Mike concert.


James Acaster, Ed Gamble, Lloyd Langford and John Robins


Originally announced in March 2021 for broadcast later that year, though didn't make it to air until over a year later.

The comedians were Sara Pascoe, Johnny Vegas, Ahir Shah and Ninia Benjamin.
