A traditional variety show with a difference: the performers have just 60 seconds in which to entertain the audience. Featuring familiar Radio 4 names, established stand-ups and some brand new talent, there's something for everyone. The whole thing is presided over by John Humphrys, who sits at the side of the stage with a stopwatch, ready to cut the microphone when the time is up.
