Russell Kane presents the sort of show we’ve all been crying out for: a showcase for various up-and-coming comedians.

Kane introduces sets from Joe Wilkinson (the scruffy oddball upstairs in Him & Her), Diane Morgan, Nick Helm and the Helmettes, and Totally Tom. We’re promised music, short films and sketches as well as stand-up, with sketches tonight from Lady Garden, Jigsaw, Wit Tank, Humphrey Ker and Hari Kondabolu. That’s a lot of names to squash into half an hour, so the pace should be quick.
