Doc Brown introduces you to Dong Comedy - the BBC Radio 1 show where hip hop and comedy collide.

Doc Brown is a former battle rapper who was originally heralded as much for his off-the-cuff freestyle rhymes on stage as for his self deprecating style on record. Over the last few years, his transformation to comedy has been so successful that his writing has earned a Bafta nomination and he will soon be supporting Ricky Gervais on his upcoming tour.

Recorded in front of a live audience at East London's Rich Mix, Doc introduces the freshest new stand-ups from the UK circuit, including Marlon Davis, Michelle de Swarte and Rob Carter.

Expect big laughs and big beats, with music from Battle Jam Champion and beatboxing legend Hobbit, and Sony Award winning DJ Big Ted.

"So get your Danny Brown snapback on and let Doc Brown bring you some dope jokes and superphat tunes."
