With the end of the heats in sight (heat eight hits Radio 4 Extra’s digital airwaves on Friday at 22:30), we’re getting ready to relinquish our power and hand it all over to you!

On Tuesday 29th October at 11am, you’ll be able to watch videos of eight runners-up performing at their heats before casting your vote for our favourite. The two comedians with the most votes will earn themselves a place in the semi-finals, which will be broadcast on BBC Radio 2 on the 2nd and 3rd of December.

We’ll also be revealing the two runners-up who have impressed our judges so much that they’ve been given a free pass straight into the semi-finals.

Before then, if you’ve missed any of the heats or simply fancy some fast laughs, you can feast your eyes on our videos from the 2013 heats.
