Comedian Russell Kane is to return as host of a second series of JOE Media’s talk show Boys Don’t Cry.
Episodes of the show, which will be available on YouTube as well as all major podcast platforms, focus on normally ‘taboo’ topics such as pornography, selfishness, rejection and introversion.
The format sees Kane hosting a panel of three guests each week across a variety of names in British culture, from fellow comedians and commentators to TV stars and politicians.
Kane said: “Series one of the show was outstanding and moving and funny. It grew from a tiny acorn into something that resulted in people coming up to me on the street or after gigs and literally thanking me for helping them talk to friends, girlfriends, parents! If that’s not success, then I don’t know what is!”
Simon Clancy, JOE’s Head of Audio and Boys Don’t Cry producer, added: “Series two will have more of the same: fun, laughter, honesty, tears, confessions, and much more, as we tackle thought provoking topics in an accessible and laugh-out-loud funny way. We got men talking and we want to continue to do that – fundamentally that is the purpose of the show.”
Last year JOE opened a new office in Manchester to house its FootballJOE brand.
