Train2game News Gaming Comedy Show


Comedian-led TV show for gamers Console Yourself , produced by GINX TV, is set to return for a third season this week on Sunday April 10th at 8 p.m. on Virgin Media channel 290 in the UK.

Building on the trend to rally gaming to TV audiences, the show will see the return of Host Neil Cole (award-winning comedian & broadcaster) and some of the UK circuit’s favourite comedy talents dissecting the common ground of video games. The show is like a stress-busting therapy session for gamers – but funny.

Guests in the new series include comedians and gamers  Inel Tomlinson (CBBC, Virgin Radio),  Steve McNeil (Go 8 Bit), Ellie Gibson (Eurogamer), Bec Hill (Sky’s DC Fancast), Jim Smallman (BBC Radio 5 Live), Bisha K. Ali, Archie Maddocks, Matthew Highton, Sam Golin and Simon Feilder.

Series 3 of the comedian-led show will see Host Neil Cole and stand-up favourites chat the loves  and loathes of videogames, with every episode focusing on a range of popular gaming themes from the PlayStation 4 console and the Street Fighter Franchise, to Pokémon, the Zelda series and the SNES.

Neil Cole commented: “When I first started performing stand-up comedy, it was a relief to realise that I wasn’t the only comedian who spent as much time playing videogames as writing jokes and driving to gigs – so this show is as natural a meeting-place for funny gaming chat as the arcade at the services on the M6 Toll Road” 

Console Yourself will be co-produced by Adam Mason and Neil Cole. For a look at previous episodes of the series, see
