Turn your ha-ha-has into ho-ho-hos for this festive edition of the stand-up showcase, which sees Mock the Week’s and The Apprentice: You’re Fired’s Romesh Ranganathan host the Yuletide yuks.

Of course, Christmas specials of comedy formats like this one can be tricky. By necessity, they’re filmed a good while before broadcast, meaning the live audiences can be a little less receptive to gags about Xmas puds, dry turkey and disappointing gifts than they would be nearer the time, and it takes a skilled comic to make jokes like that work out of season.

Still, we’re sure guests Kerry Godliman, Seann Walsh and Spencer Jones are doing their utmost to tickle everyone’s festive funnybones.


Asian Provocateur's Romesh Ranganathan warms up the audience at London's Apollo theatre for this festive edition of the stand-up show. He welcomes funnyman Seann Walsh, Derek star Kerry Godliman and surreal comedian Spencer Jones.
