A plethora of top comedians perform their best stand-up to an audience of over 3,000 at the Hammersmith Apollo in London.

At the forefront of its genre, the roll-call of stand-ups who have performed in front of the famous Live At The Apollo lights plays out like a who's who of comedic royalty. Each episode sees a national (and sometimes international) stand-up both compering and performing, before introducing two of the best established and up-coming stand-ups to the stage.

The first two series, and the first episode of the third series, were hosted by Jack Dee and thus this show was originally titled Jack Dee Live At The Apollo.

Guest hosts for the more recent series have included Jo Brand, Kevin Bridges, Rob Brydon, Ed Byrne, Alan Carr, Jimmy Carr, Greg Davies, Omid Djalili, Micky Flanagan, Rhod Gilbert, Rich Hall, Lenny Henry, Russell Howard, Stephen K Amos, Sean Lock, Lee Mack, Jason Manford, Alistair McGowan, Michael McIntyre, Sarah Millican, Al Murray, Lee Nelson, Dara O'Briain, Andy Parsons, Joan Rivers and Jack Whitehall.
