At the forefront of its genre, the roll call of stand-ups who have performed in front of the famous Live at the Apollo lights plays out like a who's who of comedic royalty, and this series is no different. Each episode sees a national - and sometimes international - stand-up both compering and performing, before introducing two of the best established and up-coming stand-ups to the stage.

This episode is hosted by the fantastic Dane Baptiste as he introduces New York-born comic Desiree Burch and Liverpool funnyman Chris McCausland to the stage.

Other acts to appear throughout the series include Ed Byrne, Katherine Ryan, Rob Beckett, Joel Dommett, Jen Brister, Darren Harriott, Henning Wehn, Lucy Porter, David O'Doherty, Luisa Omielan, Sara Pascoe, Nish Kumar, Angela Barnes, Geoff Norcott, Guz Khan, Gary Delaney, Marlon Davis, John Robins and Larry Dean.
