About this programme

1/7. Jason Manford hosts a contest in which 10 comedians with varying levels of experience compete for £100,000, their own DVD and the chance to headline a nationwide tour. The competition begins in Liverpool, where the hopefuls are sent out to get to know the city and its people so they can write five minutes of material to perform in front of an all-female audience. The stand-ups then face a panel comprising QI's Alan Davies, critic Kate Copstick and guest judge Jimmy Tarbuck, who decide which contenders go through and who will be sent home.
