WHAT: Today, iHeartPodcasts and Novel announced the launch of brand-new weekly podcast, “28 Dates Later with Grace Campbell,” comedian and writer. Grace is tired of endlessly swiping through the same old dating app scene, going to the same bar round the corner so she can make a quick getaway. Enter the podcast, which will see her going on 28 dates across two months, only dating people who are the total opposite of her usual type.

Listeners will not only hear audio from the actual dates, but will also be given a ringside seat to the post-date debrief between Grace and her friends Roz and Dan. The pair do not give Grace an easy ride, dissecting her behavior with tough love.

"My goal isn't to necessarily find 'the one', but to learn more about myself and prepare for what I want out of the next phase in my life - my 30s,” said Host Grace Campbell. “Dating isn't easy, so I want this podcast to feel like you're having an honest conversation with your most reassuring best mate.”

On a mission to shake off the restraints of her 'type', Grace will encounter a whole range of potentials who challenge her pre-existing dating beliefs.

WHO: Known for her dark humor and outrageous one-liners, Host Grace Campbell has sold out iconic venues such as Alexandra Palace and the Clapham Grand (twice) with her most recent comedy tour 'A Show About Me(n)'. “28 Dates Later” will continue to showcase Grace's irreverent hot takes and the dead-pan tone she's known and loved for. “28 Dates Later” will also amplify what Grace does best - holding up a mirror to herself and ourselves.

WHEN:28 Dates Later” will premiere November 6 with new episodes released Mondays and Wednesdays.  

WHERE: “28 Dates Later” is distributed by iHeartPodcasts and available for listeners on the iHeartRadio app and everywhere podcasts are heard.

COVER ART: Artwork for “28 Dates Later” is available here.

About Grace Campbell

A writer, producer, and comedian, Grace Campbell is a fast-rising star with a quick wit and a sharp tongue. An established stand up comedian, Grace has, over the last 5 years, built an audience of young women who relate to her astute observations of dating, politics, sex and men. Campbell holds a mirror up to society that can make some men uncomfortable and her irreverent, satirical takes make her one of the hottest comedy voices on stage, online, and on TV. As an author, in 2020 Grace released her book Amazing Disgrace, a book about “shame”, which was celebrated by Katherine Ryan as 'An outpouring of truth, wit, and beautiful comedic wisdom from the hilarious and laudably liberated Grace Campbell.’ In 2023 she took her show 'A Show About Me(n)' on a sell-out tour around the UK and Ireland, including Alexandra Palace and the Clapham Grand (twice!) and she is currently preparing to take it to the Soho Playhouse in New York. Grace's stand-up night 'The Disgraceful Club' was launched in 2019, and it has proved a breakaway success, currently holding a residency at The Clapham Grand. Grace intends to carry on making people laugh, while calling out the bullshit, and if her meteoric rise over the last few years is anything to go by, we believe she will - hilariously, shamelessly, disgracefully.
