Christmas Special

Stand-up comedy. Sarah Millican introduces king of the one-liner Gary Delaney, the effervescent Laura Lexx and the incredibly sharp Ahir Shah.

The Bafta-nominated Live at the Apollo returns to BBC Two for its fourth annual Christmas special, welcoming some of the biggest and best comedic talent to the stage for some Yuletide frolics.

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 compering and performing, before introducing two of the best established and up-and-coming stand-ups to the stage.

In this special festive edition, the funny and fabulous Sarah Millican introduces king of the one-liner Gary Delaney, the effervescent Laura Lexx and the incredibly sharp Ahir Shah to the stage.

Other acts to appear throughout the series include Ellie Taylor, Fin Taylor, Tez Ilyas, Sarah Millican, Gary Delaney, Laura Lexx, Ahir Shah, Phil Wang, Rachel Parris, Brennan Reece, Gina Yashere, Lost Voice Guy, Ed Gamble, Kerry Godliman, Suzi Ruffell, Loyiso Gola, Dara O Briain, Felicity Ward and Mo Gilligan.
