stars in a new one-off comedy special from the mind of Flight Of The Conchords star Kristen Schaal, at the end of the month for Channel 4.
Schaal has written the show, entitled Penelope Princess Of Pets, with her co-star Kurt Braunohler. In it, she plays the titular role of Penelope â€“ a young lady with the ability to talk to animals. Together with her orphan friend Kyle (Braunohler) and her pet bird Ruby, she travels to England where she was only 3762 hours to save the world from the evil MP Thomas Stone (Barratt).
The show was filmed last year, with Mighty Boosh producer Spencer Millman in charge.
The show features Kristen Schaal (Flight of the Conchords), Kurt Braunohler and The Mighty Booshâ€™s own Julian Barratt. It will air as part of Channel 4â€™s Comedy Lab on April 26th.
As soon as we have an exact air-time, and any more details on the show, weâ€™ll post them here for your peelingâ€¦Editors note: thanks to â€œStar Shaped Oneâ€ for this news story!
