Battle Of The Ages
A panel show pilot in which various generations of stand-up comedians compete to see who can be the funniest
Battle Of The Ages is the comedy show that pits the comic generations against each other, with the simple purpose of discovering which is the funniest.
Alexander Armstrong is the host as two teams – the 'Current Crop' led by Jo Brand and the 'Golden Oldies' captained by Dave Spikey – compete in a series of rounds mixing panel games and stand-up. It is described as "a gag-heavy, family-friendly show that will appeal to all generations."
Older February Pilot: Three teams - the Young Guns, the Middle Ages and the Golden Oldies - compete in a series of rounds mixing panel games and stand-up, in a gag-heavy, family-friendly show that will appeal to all generations. Many of the rounds and the eventual winners are chosen by an audience vote.
