The Great Xmas Rant


The Great Xmas Rant is a Christmas special featuring comedians and other recognisable faces as they discuss their yuletide grievances.

Capturing Christmas weariness our Grinches wax lyrical about everything from dry turkeys and naff music to party hats and terrible gift sets. 

The 90 minute show aired in December 2017 on ITV2 and featured comics such as Mark Watson, Ellie Taylor and Stephen Bailey alongside famous faces Joey Essex and Chris and Kem from Love island.

ITV’s Paul Mortimer, who commissioned the show, said the ‘comically alternative take on the festive season will no doubt amuse tired out shoppers and party-goers.’

The show was produced by Gina Lyons and directed by Ben Mallaby, This was Chalkboard TV’s second Christmas-themed commission following the three-part series The Office Xmas Party in 2014.
