Radio 4 Presenters do Comedy Stand-up for Comic Relief

A few weeks ago the diabolic minds of Comic Relief decided to get four Radio 4 presenters, team each with a mentor from the stand-up world, record potentially embarrassing tutorials and force us to do a “set” at a comedy club. Thus, Evan Davis, economics expert and Serious Person, was captured, after a considerable struggle, to be trained by Paul Merton. Professor Laurie Taylor studied under the Iranian comedian Shappi Khorsandi. Peter White, the disability correspondent, got Josie Long, and I have been advised by Milton Jones. As a sadistic twist they titled the project “Stand up with the Stars”.
