Oh dear! Comedy Central and The Gareth Cliff Show are parting ways.

There are reports that the internet radio show - which was simulcast on the DSTV channel - has  failed to attract enough viewers.

Gareth Cliff's last show will be shown on Comedy Central on Monday, 30 June.

Gareth's manager Rina Brumberg told The Juice that this was a mutual decision. "It was an experiment. We decided mutually not to continue with the show," she said.

The Gareth Cliff Show was launched in May. In an attempt to attract a bigger audience, Comedy Central moved its starting time from 7:35am to 6am.  This seems to have failed.

Gareth doesn't seem to be to concerned. His agent Rina told us. "Comedy Central doesn't have big numbers."
