Lime Pictures to Stand Up and Deliver for Channel 4

Channel 4 have confirmed that five plucky celebrities will be taking to the stage and performing comedy routines in a new format that sees them attempting to master the art of stand-up.

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 to 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 & 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.

Stand Up & Deliver will air as part of Stand Up To Cancer 2020.
