From the makers of Fonejacker comes a new show for Channel 4...Facejacker. Kayvan Novak once again plays the man of mystery, but this time he is up close and personal with his subjects rather than on the other end of a telephone line. He plays a succession of fictional characters thrust into real life situations butting up against unsuspecting members of the public. The show features a mix of some of the characters that we saw in Fonejacker (outspoken car salesman Terry Tibbs and Mr Doovde) and some that we only heard but who have now been brought to life:
Brian Badonde - the charlatan art critic who knows very little but who is more than happy to pass off your wisdom as his own whilst presenting his TV show.
Dufrais - the Jewish wheelchair-bound fantasist who is obsessed with the minutiae of life and who is desperate to attract a cast for the feature film that he is written; "Schindler's Other List"
Dr. Ali - Saddam Hussein's plastic surgeon of choice. But that was in the 80s. Now he plies his trade in the UK.
Donald Donaldson - A British-born former Hollywood director who finds himself back in England auditioning dogs and directing wedding videos but still wanting to give them the Hollywood treatment.
A character-based sketch show set in the real world performed by one man in a prosthetic mask and numerous members of the public.
