The new series of Brian Pern broadcasts exclusively online on www.bbc.co.uk/comedy this Friday July 16. Brian Pern used to front prog-rock band Thotch; flamboyant and massive in the 1970s. But times have changed; Brian’s solo and serious, less flamboyant, bald and overweight. His back catalogue still sells but concerns over whether gorillas should wear bullet proof vests to protect themselves from poachers means the new album will take god knows how long. The show stars Simon Day (The Fast Show, Swiss Toni, Bellamy's People) as Brian Pern, and has already attracted a number of celebrity followers including Peter Gabriel, Brian May and David Gilmour.
