Listen to the special report on 'Our Comic County'
Let us know what you're doing for Comic Relief 2005

As part of this year's Comic Relief fundraising spectacular BBC Gloucestershire hosted a special 'Our Comic County' event at the Guildhall in Gloucester.

We'd been talent spotting right across the county in recent weeks, looking for undiscovered comedic talent to perform alongside professional stand-ups and musicians.

On stage

Among those who appeared on stage were local comedians Nic Hill, Nick Page, and Keith Morgan.

There was music from BBC Radio Gloucestershire's very own Johnny Coppin, local band Earnest Cox, and even His Royal Highness Prince Charles' Royal Harpist - Jemima Phillips.

The event was hosted by BBC Radio Gloucestershire's Faye Hatcher and Simon Cartwright.


Here's your chance to have a right rib-tickling chuckle by watching video highlights of 'Our Comic County', and by listening to a special report on the evening.

Also featured are videos of music performances by Johnny Coppin and Jemima Phillips.
