Act Your Age is a radio panel show which "tries to determine which age of comedy is the greatest."

Each edition features Simon Mayo giving out a series of different comedy games and challenges to the three teams. In the first two series the 'Up-And-Comers' were lead by Jon Richardson, the 'Current Crop' captained by Lucy Porter, and the 'Old Guard' originally had Roy Walker at the helm, then Adrian Walsh.

In Series 3 Jon Richardson, Lucy Porter and Tom O'Connor will act as the team captains for three episodes; with Holly Walsh, Rufus Hound and Ted Robbins leading the other three shows in the series.
