It comes just weeks after the same station – TalkTV – banned Ustreme from advertising.
Eager Producers from TalkTV had reached out to offer Jim a guest slot on one of its shows to discuss the latest news. They even agreed to double the original fee offer when Jim told them he wanted to donate it to the Care After Combat charity, with the show’s presenter saying he would also personally donate to the worthy cause.
But just a day later, producers cancelled the appearance, claiming they were expecting breaking news on the day he was due to appear – despite that being almost a week away.
An email from a producer read: “Unfortunately, I’ve just double checked with my editor, we’ve had to move a few things around as we are expecting some breaking news on Monday. We won’t be able to do the slot.”
Despite numerous attempts to rearrange, his appearance remains cancelled and Ustreme cannot advertise on TalkTV.
Jim said: “Another day, another cancellation! This one is particularly funny though because TalkTV claims to be the home of free speech and they came to ME!
“It does make you wonder who is making these decisions and why. I think it must be that they’re all just worried about Ustreme because the more times we get banned or cancelled, the more people get fed up and sign up with us.
“When we say we’re the home of free speech, we really do mean it. We have comedians on our channel from across the political spectrum and our only aim is to make people laugh. We don’t do cancel culture at Ustreme.”
Ustreme features stand-up specials from a host of household names, including Jim, Jethro, Freddie Starr, Bobby Davro and Roy Chubby Brown, as well as original productions featuring up-and-coming comedians from across the political spectrum. The channel also raises thousands of pounds for veterans’ charities.
