News: Celebrities To Learn Stand Up In New C4 Show

Channel 4 has confirmed that five celebrities will be taking to the stage in a new show that sees them attempting to master the art of stand-up comedy. 

Stand Up and Deliver will follow famous faces as they are paired up with established comics who’ll mentor them and train them on their journey to have audiences rolling in the aisles. 

Each celebrity will have to perfect their routine and perform in a special gala performance. It’s a nerve-shredding, rib-tickling experience that forces our famous faces firmly out of their comfort zone and into a whole new world of performance pain. But only one star will be crowned Stand Up and Deliver Champion 2020. So, who’ll have the last laugh?

Stand Up and Deliver has been commissioned by Head of Factual Entertainment, Alf Lawrie and Commissioning Editor Becky Cadman for Channel 4.  Produced by Lime Pictures under Sarah Tyekiff, Head of Unscripted, with Andrew Jackman as Executive Producer and Claudine Parrish, Series Producer.

Becky Cadman, Commissioning Editor for Factual Entertainment at Channel 4 said, “Making a hard-bitten comedy audience laugh is surely one of the scariest challenges on television and following our plucky cast as they prepare to perform promises to be huge fun. 

Sarah Tyekiff, Head of Unscripted at Lime Pictures added, “We couldn’t be happier to be making this new format for Channel 4 and Stand Up To Cancer. Five famous faces are about to be thrust into the often harsh and unforgiving world of stand up. It’s going to be comedy gold. We cannot wait to see which of our celebrities will stand up to the challenge.” 

Stand Up and Deliver will air as part of Stand Up To Cancer 2020. Name to be confirmed closer to transmission.
