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.
