Dubliners wanted for Channel 4 comedy shoot next Wednesday

British comedian Joe Lycett has asked Dubliners to help him out by appearing in a film shoot next Wednesday.

The Great British Sewing Bee presenter posted a tweet earlier this afternoon calling on Dubliners to take part if they’re free and added an email address for his Channel 4 consumer show Joe Lycett’s Got Your Back.

For those who don’t know, Got Your Back sees Joe fight for the rights of consumers, alongside different celebrity guests every week. Since first airing earlier this year, the 31-year-old has tackled big banks, unhygienic takeaways and low-budget airlines, all in the name of making the world a better place for consumers. So far, guests have included Kathy Burke, Richard Madeley and Liza Tarbuck.

In his tweet this afternoon, Joe said: “DUBLIN! I’m coming to your city next Wednesday to film a little something and might need your help. If you’re free from 11am-3pm and up for being on camera drop [email protected] an email with the subject DUBLIN. It’ll be a laff.”

So if you feel like helping out the consumer cause and you don’t have any issues appearing on camera, you know where to be.

Joe Lycett was born in Birmingham in 1988 and was a finalist in the 2011 BBC New Comedy Awards. The following year, he was nominated for Best Newcomer at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards.

He started presenting Got Your Back earlier this year and it has since been renewed for an eight-part series. Judging by today’s post, Dublin will likely feature so if you want to see your mug on the small screen in the near future, be sure to email the above address.
