Don't Make Me Laugh is a radio panel show concept created and hosted by David Baddiel. It asks comedians to do the one thing they hate above all else - NOT get laughs.

The comedians face the challenge of going up to the mike in front of the live audience without making them laugh. If a comedian gets a laugh, he or she loses the mike, and it passes to the next guest. The longer they can go without laugh, the more points they get.

It isn't easy - in each round, they are given inherently funny topics, like 'my most embarrassing sexual experience' or 'why David Cameron's face looks like a big ham'.

Don't Make Me Laugh is a chance to hear some of the country's top comedians fight tooth and nail against their most natural instincts. "There will certainly be plenty of laughter - but only some of it deliberately."
