Comedy novices attend 'boot camp' in Peterborough


Twenty people from across the east of England have volunteered to perform a stand up routine for Comic Relief.

To prepare for the challenge, they have been sent to a comedy "boot camp" to help them learn the tricks of the trade.

They were sent to the Key Theatre, in Peterborough, to train at being funny with the help of experts in the art of making people laugh.
