GO 8 BIT started out as a bit of fun on Friday and Saturday nights at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2013, hosted by myself and my double act partner, Sam Pamphilon. We figured if we got comedians battered and made them swear at each other while they played Mario Kart, we could probably charge drunk Scottish people about ten quid a go to watch it.
It was picked up for television by the channel Dave, and we've now filmed 26 episodes across 3 series, with myself and Sam as team captains. Basically, it's all gotten a bit out of hand. Series 2 aired in Summer 2017 in the UK; Series 3's already been filmed and is due to air in 2018.
