Some of comedy's top acts are set to appear in a new series of Live at the Apollo. 

The long-running BBC stand-up showcase has been filming a new series of shows at the Hammersmith venue this week.

There was no new series last year due to Covid.

TV: Live At The Apollo, BBC2

When a show is on its thirteenth series it would be understandable if it was starting to look a bit tired and ragged around the edges. But Live at the Apollo has survived a move – some might say relegation – from BBC1 to BBC2 and established a format that works well and could last for some time yet. In fact judging by the first episode of the new series it is better than ever. Didn't it once feature grinning celebrities in the audience in the past?
