In this hidden-camera stand-up series for Channel 4's YouTube channel, comedians perform their best gags to unsuspecting members of the public, with varying levels of success.
Sure, comedians like Josh Pugh, Laura Smyth and Vittorio Angelone can win over a room full of paying comedy fans on a Saturday night, but how do they fare telling the same jokes to ordinary people in public places in the middle of the day? Tune in to find out.
In each episode, three comedians compete to see who can take the experience of a live comedy night to everyday settings such as barbershops, cafes and shopping malls. Whilst one comedian performs, the others watch from behind the scenes and ultimately decide what score they deserve. At the end of the show, the comedian with the highest score gets to set the losers an excruciating forfeit.
Across the series, watch out for Huge Davies bombarding barbershop customers with a hilarious comedy song, BBC New Comedy Award-winner Dan Tiernan having a
breakdown in an escape room, and Fatiha El-Ghorri as the world's sassiest barista.
