Stand-up comedian Ellie Taylor is to host a TV pilot in which comedians must deliver jokes about controversial news stories.
Gagging Order "challenges a line-up of top comedians to make jokes about the most controversial headlines from the last 7 days".
Producers say: "During the course of the show, the comedians will be eliminated one by one until the last comic standing is declared the winner."
A non-broadcast pilot will be recorded at the Rich Mix venue in Shoreditch on Wednesday 13th February. Free tickets
