BBC Radio 4 is piloting a new East Asian sketch show titled Drop The Dead Panda.

The 30 minute programme is created by a team of East Asian comedians, starring Nigel Ng, Evelyn Mok and Ken Cheng.

Drop The Dead Panda will focus on East Asian culture, questioning why “hot pot is better than a relationship” and ending debates such as rice vs pasta.

“We’re so excited that Radio 4 are giving us the opportunity to write and perform in our own sketch show. We can’t wait to offer insights into Asian culture and the humour found in our idiosyncrasies,” said Mok.

“Also, now we’re working with the BBC, our parents might stop questioning our careers choices.”

Radio 4 will be record the show next spring and will broadcast it in an 11pm slot.
