KEITH LEMON ‘BREAKS THE INTERNET’ WITH OVER 7.2 MILLION VIEWS FOR HIS ‘BIG FAT GYPSY KARDASHIAN’ SKETCH

Kim Kardashian may well have broken the internet in 2014 but the selfie loving star is now (unwittingly) helping Keith Lemon rack up his own internet hit as his ‘Big Fat Gypsy Kardashian’ sketch reaches beyond 7.2 million views on Facebook.

The sketch, in which Keith plays a moustachioed Kim, has been released as a sneak peak ahead of his brand new series, The Keith Lemon Sketch Show, for ITV2 which airs this week and is made by Talkback. The high level of engagement for the clip includes over 64000 likes, 22000 comments and 89000 shares.

The Keith Lemon Sketch Showis a fast paced show in which Keith affectionately spoofs the world of TV, film and famous faces. Alongside the Kardashian clan Keith will emulate other celebrities including Harry Styles, Ed Sheeran, Holly Willoughby and Ant and Dec.

Leon Wilson, Managing Director, Talkback and Executive Producer, The Keith Lemon Sketch Show, says: “We’re thrilled Keith’s fans are enjoying the Kardashians clip and promise there are plenty more big laughs and brilliant sketches in store when the series starts.”

ITV’s Commissioning Editor, Comedy Entertainment, Claire Zolkwer adds: “The level of engagement for the ‘Big Fat Gypsy Kardashian’ clip on our Facebook page is a testament to Keith’s unique characters and we can’t wait to launch the series to our viewers on ITV2 at 10pm on Thursday 5th February.”

The Keith Lemon Sketch Showwas ordered for ITV2 by ITV’s Director of Digital Platforms and Acquisitions Angela Jain and was commissioned by Commissioning Editor, Comedy and Entertainment Claire Zolkwer.  It will be made for ITV by Talkback, executive produced by Leon Wilson and written by Leigh Francis with Jamie Deeks and Dan Johnston.  The 6 x 30’ show will be series produced and directed by Jamie Deeks and Dan Johnston and co-directed by Paul Taylor.
