Online and interactive content includes the opportunity for the live and viewing audiences to use social media and hashtags to influence the events onstage – and even to heckle the performers during the event. There's also a host of backstage pictures, live chats with acts, a running commentary of the event via the BBC Three and Comedy blogs and bespoke mini clips of all the action.

The line-up is yet to be finalised but promises to be an impressive mix of MCs, sketch and character-led sets from some of BBC Three's comedy favourites, along with a mix of other household names and rising stars in the world of comedy.

The evening features a mixed bill including stand-up, sketch, character and musical comedy acts. Outside the venue an array of performances from street performers, burlesque artists and street-theatre inspired acts add to an unforgettable evening of live Fringe comedy on BBC Three.
