What to expect

The BBC Radio 4 stand-up show featuring the biggest names on the comedy circuit

In these series, Rhod Gilbert and Chris Addison introduce a line-up of the best and brightest stand-ups, inviting fresh faces and old hands onstage to display their comic talents.

Each programme features three different stars – a newcomer who performs the opening act; an established comedian or double act offering up sketches, musical numbers or character pieces; and a final headline artist. There’s some top-notch comedy from the compères too, as they showcase their funniest routines.

Among the comedy A-listers in these episodes are Jon Richardson, Russell Kane, Stephen K Amos, Doc Brown, Miles Jupp, Justin Moorhouse, Robin Ince, Sarah Millican, Simon Brodkin (as Lee Nelson), Pippa Evans (as country singer Loretta Maine), Francesca Martinez, Zoe Lyons and Tim Vine.

Fast, funny and fabulous, this show is a must for fans of cutting-edge comedy and sensational stand-up.
