The world isn’t a very funny place these days, so you could say that the people who make us laugh are more important than ever.
That’s why we’re on the hunt for your Radio Times Comedy Champion – the rib-tickling star who makes your day with their jokes or witty observations.
We whittled the comedy stars down to a shortlist, split into four groups – A, B, C and D – and then asked you to vote for your favourites. The top 8 contenders from each group qualified for Round 2 and you narrowed them down to just 4 semi-finalists who need your votes now more than ever.
In the first semi-final Adam Hills takes on Jason Manford. And in the second semi-final Richard Herring does battle with Ricky Gervais.
Who’ll get YOUR Radio Times Comedy Champion votes? You decide.
