Wow, Jason Manford's really sold himself lock stock to ITV... here he hosts a new stand-up comedy competition which sees ten comics competing for a £100,000 prize, their own DVD and the chance to headline a rather large tour. The series starts in Liverpeeeewl where the comedians are sent out to get to know the city and its people so they can write five minutes of brand new material to perform at a nerve-wracking gig in front of an all female audience (*whispers* 'cause we have nooooo sense of humour and are hyper sensitiiiiive). They then face a panel including comedian and actor Alan Davies, comedy critic Kate Copstick and this week's guest judge, Liverpool legend Jimmy Tarbuck, who will decide which comedians survive to play next week’s gig and who will be sent home.
