Rosie Jones, Lost Voice Guy, Suzi Ruffell and Ivo Graham are some of the 40 comedians featuring in new stand-up series Comedy Central Live, British Comedy Guide can exclusively reveal.

Recorded over four nights at the 21Soho club in London last month, the five-minute spots will air weekly on Comedy Central UK's YouTube and Facebook channels from January.

Other comics featured include Nathan Caton, Abi Clarke, Aurie Styla, Travis Jay, Thanyia Moore, Leo Reich, Chloe Petts, Josh Jones and Fatiha El-Ghorri.

The series is made by management company Off The Kerb, whose roster includes Rosie and Josh Jones, Ruffell, Graham and Caton. Off The Kerb has historically been linked to the television production company Open Mike, which made the stand-up showcases Live At The Apollo, Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow and Stand Up For The Week.

Comedy Central Live has previously been the name of a 2019 series of 30-minute specials on the channel from comics such as Iain Stirling, Kiri Pritchard-McLean and Tez Ilyas, a 2018 festival of comedy in Southampton that was filmed and broadcast by the channel and a circuit of live university gigs run by Off The Kerb.

John McCormack (Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow) produces Comedy Central Live, with Andy Leitch executive producing for Off The Kerb and Jonathan Pascoe executive producing for Comedy Central International.
