Producers describe the show as follows: "Jo Brand's Great Wall Of Comedy is a celebration of sitcoms - classic and modern. Jo will be putting the panel through their paces with challenges about the nation's favourite television series, with the stars of sitcoms from Hi-De-Hi! to The Office popping up along with great archive footage and anecdotes."
A run-through will take place this Saturday (27th October) at Theatro Technis, a venue on Crowndale Road in London. To apply to be in the audience see our free tickets page
A previous try-out for the show, then un-named, took place at the RADA Studios on Monday 30th April this year, with guests including Miles Jupp.
If the format trials are successful, it's likely that a full series will be on screen by the middle of 2013 - although it is not yet clear which channel the programme is being pitched to.
Channel 4 is currently broadcasting a similar series called Comedy World Cup, in which the questions are based around the topic of comedy. Hosted by David Tennant, Jo Brand has appeared as a team captain on the show, and Barry Cryer as a guest.
Jo Brand is currently starring in the third series of BBC Four's NHS comedy Getting On. In a recent interview with BCG, she said of her plans for the rest of the year: "I'm writing a new stand-up set which I'll be trying out bits of up till Christmas, and then a bigger tour next year. And I'm also writing a book about being middle-aged."
