Australian comedian Brendon Burns presents a brand new six-part series following the prestigious FHM Stand-Up Hero competition which is a chance for anyone to break into the world of stand-up comedy, from the novice standing in front of their bedroom mirror, to the circuit veterans hoping to get some serious TV exposure.
