Tracey Ullman is returning to HBO in Tracey Ullman’s Show, a six-episode sketch comedy series which aired on BBC One in the UK earlier this year. HBO also has set several comedy stand-up specials headlined by Jerrod Carmichael, the network’s stars Pete Holmes and T.J. Miller as well as All Def Comedy to premiere over the next several months.
Tracey Ullman’s Show, which will premiere on HBO October 28 at 11 PM, features Ullman playing various characters, both everybody and famous faces, including Dame Judi Dench and Angela Merkel, among others. Ullman’s similarly-themed HBO series Tracey Takes On... ran for four seasons and garnered six Emmys.
The irrepressible and multi-talented Tracey Ullman returns with another host of hilarious characters for a new series of her sketch show.

Comedian/impressionist Luke Kempner has joined the cast. His impersonations in the series include Simon Pegg and tennis pro Andy Murray. On working with Tracey: “It was amazing to work with Tracey. She gave me some great advice. And it was interesting to see how she works because she stays in character for the whole day of filming. So if she’s doing Judi Dench then she’s her all day.”
Kevin Bishop will play Northern Powerhouse character, Pam Garrity's gay son in a sketch in the new series, penned by writer, Jonathan Harvey.
