Press clippings

While Sport Relief night tends to be overrun by comedians attempting to locate their inner athlete, here five sports personalities turn the tables by trying their hand at standup comedy. The brave volunteers include England cricketer Michael Vaughan, rugby star Ben Cohen and broadcaster Gabby Logan. Each gets a mentor (among them Patrick Kielty and Jason Manford) to provide advice, inspiration and possibly a shoulder to cry on, as they hone their material for three minutes in front of a live audience.
