The Stand Up Sketch Show has been recommissioned for a third series on ITV2, British Comedy Guide can reveal.

Stand-up segments for the show, in which comedians perform routines on stage for a live audience before the action switches to them recreating the story in a filmed sketch, are being recorded at the Up The Creek comedy club in Greenwich, London from next week.

The recordings will take place on Monday 24th, Tuesday 25th, Wednesday 26th August, and Tuesday 8th and Wednesday 9th September, with regulars Seann Walsh, Russell Kane and Suzi Ruffell joined by special guests.

Iain Stirling, Kemah Bob, Jayde Adams and Alfie Brown will perform on Monday 24th August; Glenn Moore, Larry Dean, Huge Davies and Chris Washington have been booked for Tuesday 25th; and Luke Kempner, Matt Richardson and Luke McQueen will record sets on Wednesday 26th.

An ITV spokesperson told BCG: "Yes, it'll be back for a third series in 2021 ... [there will be a] reduced audience, socially distanced, all adhering to Covid-19 rules."

Glenn Moore (pictured), Alfie Brown, Matt Richardson and Luke McQueen have appeared on episodes of the show before, however the rest of the revealed guest line-up is new to the format. Previous acts to feature in the show, which launched last year and returned for a second series in February, have included Joel Dommett, London Hughes, Sarah Keyworth, Dane Baptiste and Ivo Graham.

The Stand Up Sketch Show is made by Spirit Media, which also makes the stand-up showcase for mental health, Comedy Against Living Miserably, for Dave.
