The creators of the Bafta-winning Fonejacker deliver a brand new show, where Kayvan Novak once again plays the man of mystery, but this time he’s up close and personal with his subjects rather than on the end of a phone. Disguised with the aid of prosthetics, Kayvan plays a dazzling multitude of fictional characters, some familiar and some brand new, including: the charismatic and many times divorced car salesman Terry Tibbs; scamster Augustus Kwembe, who hypnotises people to stop smoking but is really eliciting their bank details; and irritating complaint monger Dufrais. All are thrust into real-life situations where they butt up against unsuspecting members of the public. Brand new faces include charlatan art critic Brian Badonde, and Dr Ali, formerly Saddam Hussein’s plastic surgeon of choice. Facejacker is a Channel 4 comedy series which started on 16 April 2010. It follows the similar show Fonejacker. Kayvan Novak adopts various disguises, including several characters heard in Fonejacker. To promote the show, Novak appeared at Channel 4's Comedy Gala as Terry Tibbs on April 5. Series 2 finished filming in July 2011 and premiered on 27 March 2012. The series concluded on 1 May 2012. Novak plans to create a film based on the show's characters, and is currently in talks with Film4 and Hat Trick Productions.
